Instant Pot Apple-Pie Moonshine

From the comfort of your own home, you can brew your own moonshine! Okay, so it’s not “genuine” moonshine, but it’s very close in terms of intensity. This Instant Pot Apple-Pie Moonshine has a serious kick now that Everclear, which is 190 proof, has been added!

What does Moonshine taste like?

Be careful when drinking this Instant Pot Apple-Pie Moonshine. It tastes amazing, but it’s quite strong.

Tips For Making Apple Pie Moonshine In The Instant Pot:

1. Drink in moderation. Everclear is 190 proof and extremely powerful.
2. Mix with your favorite cream-based liquor and serve over ice, as a shot, or in a martini.
3.Be sure to allow the Apple Pie Moonshine cool fully before adding the liquor; else, the liquor content may be cooked out.
4.Store in mason jars made of glass! The Apple Pie Moonshine not only looks fantastic in the mason jar, but it’s also a great method to bottle and store it for later.

You can have your delicious Apple-Pie Moonshine along your favorite snacks. Try these Crispy onion rings that you can make with the Air fryer lid in the Instant Pot.
