Apple Liqueur

16 Comments

If you are interested in trying a simple liqueur and don’t know where to start, apples are a great ingredient. The photo above may appear to be tart green apples, but these are actually a sweet green apple, picked from my parents’ farm.

Ingredients:

Apples, sliced and cored

Brandy

Vodka

Place apple slices in a canning jar or glass vessel with a lid. Use equal parts brandy and vodka, using enough to cover your apples.

Infuse until the liquid reaches your desired taste. I let this infuse for about 4 weeks. The combination of sweet apples and brandy gave a great apple flavor, with no need for any sugars or additional sweeteners.  After infusing, strain and filter the liqueur. Bottle and enjoy!

Apples can really be used with any spirit. Looking to use up a spiced rum? We were… see below.

  1. I love anything with apples, they usually have such a lovely natural sweetness…this looks yummy, I may well try my first infusion with apples! Good starting point!

  2. If you like citrus a great mix is 6 granny smith with four key limes.

  3. Do you have to keep this in the fridge? What about the vodka after? How do you keep it?

    • Hi Donna, thanks for the comment! If you follow this recipe directly, you will not need to refrigerate either during the infusing time or after you have strained the liquid. The alcohol content is high enough that it is not required. I simply keep it in a bottle in a dark closet or cupboard along with the rest of my liquor.

  4. I think I’m going to have to infuse something with apple now!

  5. I’ve got an apple cocktail (rum), and am going to up the apple flavor even more by infusing that rum. But I think I’m going to do it side by side with a bourbon for a Christmas gift, which should be nice and smooth by then. You’ve done so many dynamite recipes. I get a kick reading from your site. Enjoy.

    • Thanks for the compliment! I think you will like the apple infusions. I have done 4 varieties of apple infusions by now, and they always turn out great. I think doing the bourbon v. rum is good too because you can decide how to use each one. I think they would both be good in toddies this winter!
