🍎 Main Ingredients

Vodka | Use any brand of vodka you want. Reach for an unflavored vodka so you can flavor it with the apples and spices properly to get an apple flavored vodka result.

Spices | Cloves, Cardamom pods, Anise, Nutmeg and Cinnamon sticks are what really help add tons of flavor to your vodka.

You also add some vanilla and sugar to help bring out more sweet in the mix of warm spices.

Apples | For the apples I reached for a sweet variety. Fuji, Honeycrisps, Gala, or even a Braeburn is a great choice.

For this vodka you wouldn’t want to use like a tart apple as it will give it a tangy flavor you don’t want.

Make Infused Vodka In Advance

Plan ahead when it comes to making infused vodka. The flavors need to blend, so it needs to sit for 2 days before drinking.

It needs time for the alcohol to infuse with the fresh sliced apples, warm spices, sugar, and vanilla extract.

How Do You Make Apple Vodka?

Add your apples and spices, sugar, and vanilla into a jar. Top with vodka, and place in the fridge. Store for two days, shaking to infuse flavors. Then enjoy!

Does Apple Pie Vodka Need to Be Refrigerated?

You will need to keep your apple pie vodka in the refrigerator. Otherwise you will find it spoils if left on the counter at room temperature.

Do You Leave Apples and Spices In Vodka Once Infused

After your vodka is infused, you will use a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer to get rid of the apple slices, and spices. That way you have a smooth flavored vodka.

Best Container To Store

There are numerous ways you can store your vodka. When I soaked mine I reached for a mason jar with a lid.

I find the mason jar works great for fitting the apples and spices in, and getting them removed easily.

Then for later I poured into a pourable container. Just make sure there is a lid to prevent odors from getting into the vodka.

⏲️ How Long To Store

Store this in the refrigerator for up to two weeks once it is infused and you discard the spices and apples.

You don’t want to go over that as the fruit and sugar in the vodka mixture can spoil.
