How to Make Apple Pie Shine: Recipe

1 minute read

This is an incredibly simple Apple Pie Shine Recipe that combines a neutral spirit with other readily available ingredients. ABV will vary depending on he ABV of your neutral spirit, but a word of caution - this one is extremely easy to drink!


  • 2 L Apple Juice
  • 3/4 Cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • 6+ Cinnamon Sticks
  • Honey (Optional; we don't recommend adding more than 40g)
  • 5x Whole Cloves
  • ½ Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 500 ml 90% ABV Neutral Spirit
  • 5x 500 ml Mason Jars for Storage


  1. Combine the apple juice, cinnamon sticks, vanilla, cloves, and brown sugar in a large pot and bring to a boil (If using honey, add this just before it reaches boiling point.)
  2. Boil (covered) for 10 to 15 minutes before turning off the heat.
  3. Once it has completely cooled down, add the neutral spirit and mix.
  4. Pour into your mason jars through a strainer, then add 1 x Cinnamon stick to each jar for storing.
  5. Place in the fridge - this tastes great straight away, but leaving it for a few weeks really brings out the flavours!
  6. Combine with your favourite mixer.
