Apple pie shots

This is Manda from Chicago Texas New Orleans...she calls this "poison" because she's been hurt by it before.  The guy who gave me the recipe from the bar called these shots "legspreaders" because girls love the taste and end up on their faces.  I like to call it "warm apple pie"....sounds a lot more inviting than either of those, not?  It's sort of a Halloween staple, and I like to have a huge batch so there are leftovers for me to sip on throughout the winter in a warm mug before bedtime. 

The thing is, these taste amazing, but if you're not careful they can bite you in the tush...either right away, or in the form of a horrid headache the following day. It's the Everclear...the stuff is wicked.  BUT, if you are a sipper and watch your intake, this is a very relaxing Winter beverage as well.

1 quart apple juice
1 gallon apple cider
1 bottle everclear
1 container cinnamon sticks
1 cup sugar
vodka to taste is optional

Add everything but the alcohol to a large stockpot and bring it to a boil for 5 minutes. Let it cool and add the alcohol when it's chilled.

Mix and funnel back in the containers for storage (this recipe is from a bar so they made large batches....aaaaaand I usually double it! You don't have to use a skeleton beer bong funnel...but I don't see why you wouldn't.
