We shared some with a friend, and he said it tasted just like some he made at home - Grandma's Apple Pie. There are several recipes for apple pie liqueur online, different variations, but they all look pretty much the same - apple cider, spices and alcohol. Today I followed my friend Mike's recipe and finally got around to making some apple pie liqueur of my own:
Some of the recipes I found online say to bottle and age 1 month, so I'm not entirely sure if it's ready yet or if I need to let it sit. But, it made a lot - I probably should have made a half recipe! We have the original Apple Pie Liqueur bottle from last year re-filled, along with a Jack Daniels bottle, another whiskey bottle, a Mason jar - all full, and about half a pint jar. So, even if I can't wait to get into some of it, there will be plenty that will age way more than a month. If you've made this before, let me know how you do it.
We just drank the bottle we bought, either room temperature or slightly warmed. It was really good that way, but I want to try some of these Apple Pie Liqueur Cocktail Recipes with what I made today. That Apple Pie Ala Mode looks especially good!
