Cocktail of the Week: Apple Pie Moonshine

Yes, you read that right! We're mixing up a moonshine cocktail and, while this spirit might seem a bit out of the box to some of you, we promise that its unique and delicious flavors won't disappoint. So, grab your cocktail shaker because this late-fall sipper is a tasty combination of apple, cinnamon and vanilla that you don't want to miss!


  • 2 oz. Apple Cider
  • 1.5 oz. Saint Luna Moonshine
  • 1 oz. Vanilla Vodka
  • 1 oz. Cinnamon Simple Syrup
  • 0.5 oz. Lemon Juice
  • Half a Cap of Vanilla Extract


  1. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker, top with ice, and shake until chilled.
  2. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice.
  3. Garnish with apple slices and a cinnamon stick.
