Peach Pie Moonshine

Peach Pie Moonshine

Peach Pie Moonshine

This actually answered my own problem, thank you!

I used a liter of everclear and a liter of schnapps. It made the finished product roughly 18% alcohol (36 proof).

I put mine into quart mason jars and let sit in the fridge for 3-4 weeks. You can’t taste the alcohol but you sure feel it

I would say around 20%, but that is just a guess. It is definitely stronger than wine and weaker than vodka.

Thanks so much for this! I found you via #sitsblogging and this is perfect to fit the theme of a party I’m having soon. I’m responsive for drinks and it’s a country theme so it should work perfectly.

Kendra recently posted…A Perfect Rain Day

Yes I noticed after I posted that. I am so sorry that you had to repeat yourself! It is awfully cold here in Kansas so we are coming up with inside ideas to keep us busy! lol

Thanks for replying back,


Yes. I just stored mine in a cool/dark place (a cabinet). I just drank my last jar a week ago and I made it for New Year’s Eve. You can also cut the recipe in half if you want to make less.

I assume it would last fine throughout the year. I’ve never had it last that long:). You could certainly try making it with other fruits. I’ve tried making it with blackberries, but I need to play around with the recipe a bit more to really get a good blackberry flavor.

Not right now, I don’t. I like your thinking though! I may have to come up with something:)

I do and it tastes great. The longest I’ve had it last is a little over 2 months. It’s usually drank fairly quickly when I make it for parties:)

my question is can you use PINNACLE® WHIPPED® FLAVORED VODKA instead of ever clear i don’t want my alcohol flavor to be real strong. i saw a peach pie moonshine where they used this vodka instead of ever clear but i wanted to get your thoughts on this matter i want my moonshine to be really sweet and peachy.

We made it yesterday and calculated it to be 28% proof and it made 12 pints (equivalent to 6 quarts). As you said, you really can’t taste the alcohol in it. If you want a more peachy flavor, try using Welch’s peach medley instead of the white grape peach. I am not a fan of cinnamon or cloves so I left those out. We loved it!! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

I noticed in the notes that you say you used no sugar, so I am going to leave out the sugar then?

I bought mine at Walmart. It’s their Great Value brand. They also sell the Welch’s brand too:)


Walmart had the juice, thanks. The only way I could ‘improve’ on the recipe is to suggest that you have some vanilla ice cream on hand when you strain out the peaches – very decadent.

I can’t get to your Apple pie moon shine recipe! I would love to try that o’m e! Can you help me out?

I have never sealed the jars after making it. You certainly can, but I haven’t had it last long enough for that to be a necessity. I usually make it for parties and as gifts. I think the longest I have had a jar is 2 months before it was drank.

I’ve never sealed them. I have had one reader do the math and she said they figured the alcohol content to be 28%. The longest I’ve had a jar before it was drank was 2 months. If you plan to keep it for a long time, you could seal it. I just never have it last long enough, as I make it for parties and such:)


This sounds so good! I love peaches, but I don’t see what size of the cans of peaches that you used, other than you listing 2 cans in the recipe. Can’t wait to try this!

Thanks, Chris

I wouldn’t suggest trying to boil them, as once you add the alcohol it becomes flammable. This is just my opinion though, but I woukd be afraid to try it. I made Apple Pie moonshine in November of last year (quite a lot of it actually! Lol), just recently opened the last jar and it was fine! Only thing that might happen is for it to get stronger!

You can find it in some liquor stores. It’s not always available! In NH where I live you can only get 150 proof. But surrounding states have 190 proof.

We just made 2 more batches this afternoon. I like the white grape peach juice but my hubby likes Welch’s peach medley which I buy at Dollar General. He also likes to “soup it up” a bit. We are still in the testing phases but this go round he added an additional 16 oz. of Everclear in addition to the 750 ml bottle that the recipe calls for (last time he added an additional 1 oz. per quart jar). Everyone we know that has tried it absolutely loves it!! Funny thing…my mom actually sent me this website today thinking I might like the recipe. I had to confess that I had already made it….now she wants me to bring her a jar! LOL!

When making real moonshine we try to get rid of the water content for better alcohol percent. Therefore when we mix a fruit shine, we use straight frozen concentrate fruit juice which has most of the water content removed.

I make the apple pie moon shine all the time. All my friends love it. I make it with everclear. O can’t wait to make your peach moonshine.

Brought the peach pie moonshine to a party this evening and it was definitely a big hit. Apple pie moonshine next.

You could always use the moonshine they sell now in liquor stores, but it’s not as strong. Only 100 proof vs 190 proof.

Hi, Can you tell me how you serve this beverage ?

thank you !

Hi Katie, thanks for the recipe, I shared it with some guys at work yesterday saying that it looked good, and they pitched in for me to make it. After Brandon tried it at home last night, he said it “Could be dangerous”. We will definitely enjoy. I’ve been enjoying checking out the rest of your website too, fun stuff! Love it!

I cant wait to make this for Christmas sounds great

can you use fresh peaches? we have a ton of fresh one & i am trying to figure something to do with all of them.

I don’t see why not!

My husband and I are planning to make this tonight. However, I am planning on doing fresh peaches so I assume I need to prepare them such as I was going to can them w the thick syrup and all and then make this recipe. Do you agree? Have you ever made this into pint jars and not quarts? If so how many did you get? Thanks can’t wait!!!

I printed my design on adhesive sticker sheets and then used a round hole punch to cut the labels out.

Made it last night, did not make as if canning. Just fresh peaches. I think the two I picked though were a bit too big. Turned out great I made 1/2 a batch and came up with 8 jars. One is gone already with everyone trying it.



I don’t, but have thought of making one. I’ll give that a try:)

OMG! I linked over from Pinterest to read your article on the HomeRight PaintStick EZ-Twist Paint Roller and Quick Painter set and now I’m gonna be making me some MOONSHINE! I’m posting this to Pinterest like so many others have and signing up to get emails. I can see in my future some Orange moonshine for Halloween, Cranberry moonshine for Thanksgiving, Pomegranate moonshine for Christmas etc. So basically, I’m gonna be experimenting a lot over the next few months! I have a dozen friends who are gonna be drafted as taste tasters and a ton of raspberry tea bags from our summer parties. So, guess my first order will be RASPBERRY MOONSHINE and I’m off to Walmart…YEE HAW!

I am making the peach pie moonshine,could i mix vodka with ever clear

I’ve drank it right away, but you can let it set as long as you like. Most people seem to prefer 2 weeks to a month.

Can someone tell me how to calculate the % alcohol per batch. Thank you so much.

Straining everything removes any bits of of the cinnamon sticks that may come apart during the simmering process. Depending on the types of cinnamon sticks you use, this could happen. You don’t necessarily have to do it though.

Do you have the recipe for the apple pie moonshine? I would love to try it out.



We made the apple pie moonshine, had to add a bit more apple juice and strained it several times to get it to “perfection”. They turned out great and I think they will be my new extra Christmas gifts. Thanks so much

By any chance have you made raspberry pie? Trying to find a recipe. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I just cap them. If you were to actually can them, you would burn off the alcohol. I don’t have a shelf life number to give you. The longest I’ve ever had any last is a few months before it was all drank. A friend had hers for a year and said it tasted great still.

I substituted the sugar with blue agave and it tastes amazing so far… still cooling in my closet right now!

Getting ready to try this for the first time, but, i am doubling the ingredients, and using a half gallon of everclear, and a half gallon of peach schnapps, so normally on a double up, it would be 1500ml of each this will be 1750, so this will be stronger, i will post back how it is.

How long do you let everything meld together before drinking it? I’ve seen some recipes that say to wait at least a month.

I checked several recipes, and this one looked the beat by far. I couldn’t find the white grape peach juice, so I took a chance and used white can peach by Oceanspray. It turned out really good. Peaches in heavy syrup and 3 cups of sugar. I brought to a boil and simmered for an hour and a half. Reduced it to a syrup almost but after adding the ever clear and the Peach schnapps, it filled five 750 ml bottles. I did the math on the percentages of alcohol, etc. I came out with a batch that is 22% alcohol witch is 44 proof. My next batch I will add an extra half bottle of ever clear to bring it up to about 30%. It truly depends on how much you reduce it while cooking. For those that fear the everclear, really it’s not bad. It ends up very sweet and even with no shelf time it’s fantastic. I didn’t bottle with the peaches as I wanted a very clear bottle of booze. I took the peaches from the cooking and put them in a decanter along with vodka and a bit of peach snaps to make a peach infused vodka. Its taste thus far is very promising! Great recipe!

I just screw the lids on. I don’t boil them to seal them. There is enough alcohol that the peaches are just fine.

I suggest using closer to 2 gallons of juice if using 190 proof Everclear. Very strong stuff. This comes from making many batches of apple pie moonshine. Also peach brandy can be added to but not necessary. This should yeild over 9 Qts. Just my thoughts.

We just got a bushel of fresh peaches and I wanted to try this. I have peach cider. Can I use this in love of the white grape peach juice?

I have a gallon of Real moonshine, want to make BoilO , apple Jack and peach Jack,

So to make these just reduce recipie down to amounts say 1/2 or 1/4 of what they call for.

Any suggestions for sugar or sweetener and juice for theses smaller amounts.


My buddy has been making “moonshine” for years so this is not something new.

As for alcohol, people have used several different things. Everclear, rum, vodka…it’s a matter of personal preference. (Although Everclear is the actual alcohol preferred. 190 proof if you can get it.)

I’ve made apple pie moonshine with a 750ml bottle of Everclear and added about a cup of vanilla vodka to the mix. This its Apple Pie ala Mode!

You can experiment with pretty much whatever taste variations you can imagine.

There is no “right” recipe!

As I type this I have a batch of peach heating up on the stove.

I’ve altered the base recipe by using two cups of granulated sugar and about half a cup of light brown sugar. I’ve also tossed in about a teaspoon of vanilla extract.

I’m sure it will be delicious!

Of course! I’ve had many people tell me they have used fresh peaches and love it!

Of course! I would maybe start with half a teaspoon and add more to taste.

I made a patch last week, I’m worried about it spoiling. Are you suppose to can it to seal the pint jars. Im pretty excited about it.

So, I made this recipe this past weekend so I can give them as Christmas gifts this year. I wanted to make them a bit stronger so here is what I did. I kept everything the same except I used a 1 liter bottle of Peach Schnapps and 1 and a half bottles of Everclear… I also added an extra can of Peach Slices in Heavy Syrup. They are AMAZING… I have a hard time believing that they will last until Christmas, but I will try. Next I am going to make the Apple pie recipe. Thank you so much!

I have 1 quart of moon shine so how much of the stuff in recipe will I use cause I want it to be strong

I have 1 quart of moonshine and so should I cut recipe in half if I want it to be strong like it is now but have a little flavor.

I’m not entirely sure. I buy mine at Walmart. I haven’t always had luck finding it at grocery stores. There’s the Welch’s brand or I buy the Walmart Great Value brand as well. Hopefully you can find it!

I read through all the comments, hoping to see other peoples recipes. My apple pie is pretty much like yours other than I don’t use nutmeg, going to try that with next batch. Reading trough these post is terrifying though. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCE SHOULD YOU EVER TRY AND CAN (BOIL) ANY LIQOUR! By trying to can liquor you are working with a potential very explosive device. Please people do your research first before any new adventure.

THANK YOU!!! I would LOVE to make authentic moonshine but the way my life is set up I LOVE my freedom more. That being said Thanks for this recipe. Like many others I couldn’t find the white grape peach juice. I used white grape and some peach nectar. I also used half white and half brown sugar (ran out of white). My liqour store had 90 proof peach schnapps so I used a bottle of that in addition to the 190 proof everclear. Oh I also used a pumpkin pie spice blend I had on hand instead of cinnamon. I’m excited and so are my friends in aniticipation of the finished product. I plan to allow it to sit for a month…maybe…or at least a couple of weeks. THANKS again!!!

Found this googling, and it looked like a good recipe. Made it about a month ago and just cracked open a jar last night and it’s great!! I did add more everclear, I used a 1.75L bottle instead of the 750ml. It’s got that strong smell when you crack it open but after a month it is perfect. Almost no bite what so ever. Great Recipe! Thanks!!

I am a bit impatient, so I actually will drink mine the next day;) A lot of people will wait a month or so, but I think it actually tastes pretty good the next day.

I’m going to make this next week, what size strainer works best and u just pour through cloth to another pot or wats best way

There is a batch of your recipe for Peach Pie Moonshine cooling on my kitchen counter as I type this. It smells wonderful! Your recipe is so easy to follow. Thank you for posting it! Since most of this will be for gifts, I plan to put the peaches and with the half of the batch of Peach Pie in jars and bottle the strained remainder in wine bottles. Some of my family and friends have a casual approach to life and others are less low-key. I might even enter some of the jarred Peach Pie in the local County Fair.

This turned out a success and is absolutely delicious! I am thinking this treat will make a great Christmas gift.

I strain them because the cinnamon sticks inevitably break apart a little bit and I don’t want those pieces ending up in the jars:)

Just a quick update…I gave bottles of peach pie as host gifts while I was travelling recently. All the recipients were delighted! It is so good my friends offered to save empty wine bottles for me for my Christmas gift batch. I will definitely make this again. I did use raw sugar so it was slightly sweeter than I anticipated. I might cut back by 1/2 a cup and add a couple more cinnamon sticks in the next batch but that is just personal preference. My family tends to be heavy-handed with cinnamon. Your recipe is great as is and will make nice holiday gifts paired with a bottle or jar of Apple Pie Moonshine. Again, thank you for posting this recipe.

I had to come back to this site and your recipe after I made my batch. It is definitely at least 28% alcohol or 56 proof. Now this is the way I like it and my Apple Pie Moonshine I used someone else’s recipe and upped the Everclear (I actually used grain alcohol from a local distiller here in Iowa, which was same proof, but several dollars cheaper then Everclear). I don’t know if it’s just an Iowa thing or the same all across the country, but I believe Everclear used to be around 180-190 proof (90-95%). Now the strongest grain alcohol we can get in Iowa is 151 proof (Hmmm… the same as 151 Bacardi, imagine that) or 75%.

Anyway… when I mixed in all the liquor, stirred it up and then tried a sip, it was Mmm Mmm Good for me, but there are others who wouldn’t want or drink something that strong. I did notice with the Apple Pie Moonshine that it did seem to mellow with age. So I imagine after a week or two this will taste like nothing but sweet Georgia peaches on a sunny day.

I do believe I saw mention of a Cherry Pie Moonshine above. “Honey, I’ve got a new shopping list for you.”

Made this today ! Used Everclear ,99 Peaches and Vanilla Vodka !! So good and increased the alcohol level ! Bottoms up !

The February batch is now history. It was so popular as a host gift that a trip to the warehouse store for a large can or two of peaches and a large bottle of peach schnapps seems to be in my future so a double batch can be made. My family and friends thank you

Proof is 30

using 190 everclear and a 30 proof peach schnapps

Moonshine has become hugely popular lately. Between the TV show Moonshiners, to Florida Georgia Line’s song “Get Your Shine On,” everyone seems to be drinking it. I’ll admit that I’m not a huge fan of straight “white lightining,” but I do enjoy the flavored shines out there. I bought a couple of jars last year as Christmas gifts, but at $25 a jar, it was a little too pricey for me to buy very many jars. This year I decided to make my own and give it out as gifts for friends and family. Between the cost of all of the ingredients and the mason jars, it breaks down to about $6 per jar. That’s something that I can get excited about!

A friend had made some peach pie moonshine for our New Year’s Eve party last year and I absolutely loved it, so I decided that was what I would make! I made my first batch this weekend and it was amazing. I adapted this recipe from one I had found online. I then made up my own little jar labels in Pic Monkey and cut them out with one of my circle cutters in my scrapbooking stash. The recipe yields about 7 quarts, so a good amount to give away and keep some for yourself:) This isn’t technically moonshine, because it is made with everclear. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on some real moonshine (not the lower proof store-bought kind), then that would make this even more authentic!

Here’s the yummy recipe below. I hope you enjoy it and that whomever you gift it to loves it as well! Remember to also drink responsibly.


p.s. You can now find my recipes for Apple Pie Moonshine here, and my Cherry Pie Moonshine here.

2 - 64 oz bottles white grape peach juice

2 - 15 oz cans sliced peaches in heavy syrup

2½ - 3 cups granulated sugar

6 - 7 cinnamon sticks

1 750 ml bottle everclear

1 750 ml bottle peach schnapps

In a large pot, bring juice, peaches w/ syrup, sugar, and cinnamon sticks to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Take out the cinnamon sticks Let cool to room temperature, then add the peach schnapps and everclear. Stir well, then pour through a strainer layered with a cheesecloth to strain out the peaches and any bits of the cinnamon sticks. Ladle into jars. Peaches can be divided between the jars. Yields 12-14 pint-sized jars and 6-7 quart-sized jars.
