Apple Cinnamon Infused Bourbon

makes about 3 cups

  • 2 cups chopped dried apple rings
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 750 ml bourbon whiskey

Place dried apples and cinnamon into a large jar with a wide opening. Pour bourbon on top and seal lid tightly. Store infusion in a cool dark place and agitate quickly once a day for three days.  Strain infused bourbon into a large measuring cup fitted with a fine mesh strainer, pressing some of the juice from the apples (they will be reconstituted). Transfer strained infused vodka to clean bottles. The infusion should last indefinitely if strained well.
