Apple Liqueur Recipes

Nalivkas (Fruit Liqueurs)

Apple Liqueur

2 pounds of sweet apples
1 1/2 cup vodka
2 1/2 cups brandy
2 cups sugar
3 cinnamon sticks
1 dozen whole cloves
Wash apples well and remove stems. Slice into thin pieces and add to an aging container with the alcohol, cinnamon and cloves. Age for about 5 to 6 weeks. Make simple syrup with sugar and water, allowing to cool. Remove solids from liquid and pour liquid back into aging container. Extract juice from apples and remove cloves and cinnamon sticks. Pour juice into liquid mix and add syrup. Allow this to age for about 2 or 3 months (this is all theory, mine was tried after a couple of weeks). I used a food processor on the apples and squeezed them inside of a grain boiling bag. This seemed to work well.
