How to Make Flavored Apple Pie Vodka with Sweet Apples

Lyndsay Cordell

Start off by preparing the cinnamon simple syrup. Mix together equal parts water and sugar in a small saucepan and bring the mixture to a gentle boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Add four cinnamon sticks and let the mixture sit until it's cool, which should take about 20 minutes. Once it's cool, pour the simple syrup along with the cinnamon sticks into a 32-oz mason jar, then add in the apple slices and the vodka. You can use red or green apples, whatever your favorite type of apple is works here.

Shake the bottle and refrigerate for three days. Once the three days have passed, strain the alcohol through a fine-mesh strainer and into a clean mason jar. Keep the apple pie vodka in a cool dark place. For a perfect fall cocktail, use the apple pie vodka to make a ginger apple spritzer, by mixing the apple vodka with apple cider and ginger ale or ginger beer. Mix with caramel vodka for a caramel apple martini!
