Prep time



Brandy is pretty good on its own, especially during colder weather. A tasty alternative is apple brandy, especially this DIY version. Smooth and warming, without the usual sharp brandy bite.


  • 1 bottle brandy (750ml size)

  • 2 apples, cored, sliced, peeled

  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1 cup water

  • 3 – 4 whole cloves

  • Cinnamon stick, about 4 inch size


  • In small pan, add the sugar to water, over medium low heat. Stir till sugar is completely dissolved. Let sit with heat off.
  • Add apples to glass container. Add spices, then sugar water mixture. Stir to mix, then add brandy.
  • Store complete mixture in sealed glass container for at least 10 days.
  • Open container and pour contents through sieve. Set solids aside, discarding cloves and cinnamon. Store apples in sealed container for use later. (Makes great bread)
  • Save brandy in sealable jar. Serve and enjoy.
