The holiday season is upon us and with this time of year comes family gatherings galore. I am always looking for a special gift to give or that extra something to bring along to family get togethers and I do believe I found the perfect one with the Cranberry Spice Moonshine made with Everclear. It is easy to make and can be drank right away or put in mason jars to be given as gifts or just to enjoy later! This drink has the perfect mix that goes great with any holiday festivities! It has cranberrie, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves which are some of the most classic holiday spices around. Mixed together they make one heck of a drink! I made a batch to try out and it was super delicious but very potent! I definitely look forward to bringing it along to our family gatherings this holiday season! See the recipe below:
CRANBERRY SPICE MOONSHINE
1 pound fresh or frozen cranberries
6 cinnamon sticks
1 teaspoon whole cloves
½ teaspoon whole allspice berries
2 whole nutmeg, quartered
3 cups apple cider
½ gallon cranberry juice
1 (750 ml) bottle Everclear®
- Roughly chop cranberries, combine with Everclear® in a large, sealable container.
- Steep one week in the refrigerator.
- Once steeped, combine cranberry juice, cider and spices in a large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.
- Remove from heat and let sit another 30 minutes or until cool.
- Strain both mixtures into a large, sealable container.
- Gift and enjoy responsibly. May be served warm or chilled.
Please use caution when making this delicious holiday beverage. Everclear® is highly flammable, so it and the cranberry infusion should be kept away from the stovetop or other heat sources. Once it’s been diluted with the cranberry juice and cider mixture, it can be safely heated. If a more intense spice flavor is desired, you can increase the quantity of spices or mull time.
This drink is awesome and its a great way to incorporate a new traditional alcoholic beverage to your holiday gatherings! I loved it and I am sure you, your friends and your family will love it too! Definitely a must have for this holiday season!
