Good hooch. Dad used to bring home quart jars of peach brandy from out in western Virginia. We used it for cleaning car parts and in egg nog.

Moonshine ??? For a commercial sample, find a mason jar of Ole' Smokey.

Back in the early 30s Dad used to run moonshine from Catoctin Furnace and Buckeystown, MD to Catholic University in DC. He had a 35 gallon tank in the rumble seat of a Model A.

New wife ???? Happy Valentine's Day - let it all hang out .................

Apple pie is the devil. I usually know my limits pretty well but one night I had a couple double shots mixed in with my intake and it hit me hard.

And too late to shut it off. I was a mess...

Apple Pie moonshine is a fast and direct route to sloppy drunkenness and a nasty hangover. I don't know how people can drink that stuff! My fiance and best friend were matching moonshine shots at my friend's bachelorette party this summer and it did -not- end well. :lol:

What is "Apple Pie" moonshine? Despite my Scotch-Irish heritage, I am not familiar with the premier products of Appalachia.

And while I am not familiar with Catoctin Furness, I do know and have been to Buckeystown, MD!

It's just moonshine that tastes like apples and cinnamon. It can actually be found (in some form) in most liquor stores and even in convenience stores here in the PNW nowadays. It's becoming very popular.

Judging by the OP saying Moonshine (alternative) some one possibly mixed Everclear grain alcohol 151 or 190 proof with Apple cider, apple juice, brown sugar, white sugar and some cinnamon sticks.

Altaneve Prosecco & Orange juice Mimosa with my breakfast for me.

orconn, Catoctin Furnace is/was a small town, home to a large iron furnace/iron products business, up near Thurmont, MD. According to Dad, it was also known for its liquid products without tax stamps. Been through there as a teenager madly driving Maryland roads in an Austin Healey 100-4.

Yup that's right lol 190 proof everclear, captain Morgan spiced rum, Apple cider, Apple juice, brown sugar, white sugar, and caramel extract. It calls for cinnamon instead of caramel but we were trying to duplicate Sugarland Apple pie which is our favorite and uses green apples and caramel with no cinnamon. Turned out pretty tasty. We tried samples of ole smokey and Sugarlands on our honeymoon in gatlingburg last September and preferred Sugarlands well over ole smokey

Used to take Sunday drives, when we lived in Great Falls, up to Thurmont and ate at that restaurant/motel where the Secret service assigned to Camp David used to hang out. I understand that the restaurant and motel closed a couple of months ago. The drive from Thurmont back up into the Catoctin Mountains was a great way to spend an afternoon.

I've got a mason jar of Ole Smokey in the cabinet right now. Regular, not fruit flavored. You can definitely taste the corn mash. Ole Smokey is proud of its slogan "Guaranteed to be less than 30 days old".

A few years ago our annual Company reunion was hosted by out C/O in N.C.. One evening several of us where standing outside the hotel in the driveway smoking a cigarette when this good ole boy pulls up in a pick up and say's "Y'all want some moonshine? A was at a wedd'in and cain't take this stuff back with me in the truck". I said sure and thanked him as he handed me a ball jar full of a clear liquid with cherries at the bottom. I took it back to out hospitality room and poured a little for everyone (who wanted to) to sample. :shocked2: :shocked: WOW! Talk about rocket fuel. The cherries alone at the bottom where enough to put you over the legal driving limit.

Nothing. He did not want to chance driving with it in the truck and just gave it to us.

Find a jar of these cherries - they're about 50 proof after they mix the 'shine, cherries and juice. About $20 at larger liquor stores. They're great for manhattans, old fashioneds and whatever. Also on top of the whipped cream on your hot fudge sundae.
