Apple pie shots…so delicious and oh so versatile! Apple pie shots can be served at room temperature, chilled or heated to warm you to your toes. They are simple to make too. All you have to do is:
Bring a gallon of cider (Some folks prefer equal parts of apple juice and cider.) and four cinnamon sticks to a gentle boil. Keep that up until your cinnamon sticks begin to unravel. Then simply discard the cinnamon sticks, let all that apple yumminess cool and add a half a liter of Everclear. If you like things spicy, add some Captain Morgan Spiced Rum or Fireball Cinnamon Whisky to the mix!
It’s no wonder apple pie shots are extremely popular. They are perfect to serve at the holidays or to thank the hosts of your holiday parties. Need the perfect gift? Pour apple pie shots into mason jars tied with festive ribbons! They are a wonderful way to take the chill off on a cool evening or even ring in the New Year.
Want to make your apple pie shots even more fun? Enjoy caramel apple pie shot by just adding a dollop of whipped cream drizzled with caramel sauce. A holiday serving idea is to top that whipped cream with cinnamon, nutmeg or allspice instead. If you need a sipper because a shot of apple pie is simply not enough, put yours in a cocktail glass and garnish it with an apple slice; or you can heat it up and place it in a mug with a cinnamon stick. If you like creamy drinks, you can make your apple pie shot with Bailey’s Apple Pie Irish Cream Liqueur, vodka and allspice…Doesn’t that sound nice?
Why mess with all that crust and filling nonsense when you can easily get your apple pie in a glass?
