Bottled some pints and put the rest in leftover bottles. Tastes awesome.

I didn't use anything but clear liquids even the cider was clear, only one I could find actually.


As for storage of this stuff. Do I have to store it in the fridge. Was going to keep some of it in the same closet I keep a coolidor. It's dark and as cool as I can let it be, say highest around 80 in the summer. Will it be okay in there for some months?

It's the cider you guys are using. I'm buying a fresh cider from a local farmers market here in Virginia. I'm assuming you guys are buying a grocery store cider, which is known for a longer shelf life, but more processed than the fresh stuff.

Jason...I always store mine in the fridge. Have kept some in there for as long as nine months and it's still as good as the day I made it. Not sure about leaving it stored outside the fridge...I know I won't do it. :-)

If I had used fresh cider I'd definitely agree. Gonna try for a while and see what happens since I used pasteurized preservative filled cider and juice.

Now another question. Found with tasting that the cinnamon was really good and a little high so didn't need to leave in the jars. You think I can save and reuse the sticks?

I've personally never re-used the sticks. After I cook it and it cools down, I toss the sticks. If you leave them in the jar, it gets too strong. I guess you could always try to re-use them. Not sure how strong the cinnamon will be.

I modified this great recipe to make a peach cobbler version.
Here is the recipe if anyone would like to try it.

Peach Cobbler Shine
Prep time 5 Min
Cook time 60 Min

Ingredients:
1 gallon peach grape juice
2 cups white sugar
3 table spoon of Vanilla Extract
6 cinnamon sticks (get a legit brand. Spend the extra cash.)
Sliced peaches
2 cups 190 proof Everclear grain alcohol
1 cup Whipped Cream Vodka
2 cup peach schnapps

Directions:
In a large pot, combine peach grape juice, sugar, vanilla extract, 1 cup peach schnapps, peach slices and three cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil, simmer for
1 hour, then remove from heat and let cool completely (overnight preferred). When juice mixture is cool, Stir in the grain alcohol, 1 cup peach schnapps
and vodka. Add 1 peach slice in each jar and fill jars with mixture (strain while filling jars for smoother mixture).

Store in fridge. Before serving, shake the jar (cinnamon residue will float to the bottom), pour in a cup of ice, and drink up!!


Thanks Mac, the original is still the best.

I have one jar left in the fridge. Made a half batch a while ago, and accidentally used enough cinnamon for a full batch.

So, I cut it back down with apple juice, and add some vodka too kick the alcohol content back up.

Still works good for me. :-)
