It is like sipping the holidays! This Homemade Apple Brandy is a flavorful spirit that really can get that holiday cheer going. Its apple pie flavor is divine and is a drink that can be served warm or cold. This Apple Brandy really is something special.


  • 1 apple, cored
  • 2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups brandy
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves


  1. Add all ingredients to a pot.
  2. Warm on low and stir until sugar is melted
  3. Put into a covered container (I use a quart jar) and let sit at room temperature for one week.
  4. (optional) Remove apples after the one week is over and place into serving bottles. I tend to use mason jars for stuff, so I just keep it in there with the apples and drink it up.


If the end product is too thick for your liking either add more brandy (for a stronger drink) or water to taste.
