    Bring a bottle of this homemade blueberry pie moonshine to your next gathering and you will go home with more friends than you arrived with.
    A while back, I published a homemade apple pie moonshine recipe and it spread through Facebook and Twitter like wildfire. If you had the opportunity to try it, you probably found that it did taste just like an apple pie. It is a fairly sugary mixed drink and the alcohol is dangerously hidden behind every sip.

    In this recipe for homemade blueberry pie moonshine, the alcohol taste is not so subtle. Actually, it comes right out and smacks you in the face, but then goes easily down with a nice full blueberry aftertaste. Blueberry pie moonshine is more my style as it is designed to be a slow sipper instead of a big gulper like apple pie moonshine sometimes can turn out to be.

    To get this started, let me first go on record and say again, this is not real homemade moonshine. This is a very strong mixed drink that can have the appearance of moonshine since it is stored in a jar like the real stuff.

    • 1/2 bottle of 190 proof Everclear (750ml)
    • 1/2 cup of vanilla whipped Vodka
    • 1 can of blueberry pie filling
    • 1 cup of brown sugar
    • 1/2 gallon of Blueberry Juice or juice cocktail (found at any grocery store)
    • 1 tub of blueberries
    • 5 cinnamon sticks
    Begin by bringing the juice, cinnamon sticks, and whole blueberries to a slow simmer in a large soup pot.

    When simmering, add in the brown sugar and one can of blueberry pie filling. Stir slowly and continue to simmer for about 25 minutes.

    When the blueberries are soft and the all the sugars are dissolved, turn the heat off and allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.

    Once at room temperature, add in 1/2 cup of vanilla whipped vodka, and about 1/2 of the bottle of Everclear.

    Transfer the moonshine into 1 quart jars and store in the refrigerator for at least 5 days before drinking.

    This will be a much harsher drink than the apple pie moonshine, so be ready for that. The blueberries just don’t hide the strong alcohol taste, however with slow sips, this drink is delicious. The longer it ages in the fridge, the better it will be. I would suggest at least three or four days. This recipe, as listed, will make just over 3 quarts. You may need to experiment with the amount of Everclear to add to this recipe. I enjoy bourbon and rum straight up, so stronger tasting drinks are right up my alley.

    Must Try Moonshine: The Best Recipe For Homemade Apple Pie Moonshine


    There are some variations to this homemade moonshine that I have found as well:
    Variation #1. Use about 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract instead of the vodka.

    Variation #2. Strain the blueberries out of the mixture. However, I like putting the blueberries in the jars and eating them later…

    Variation #3. Use white sugar instead of brown. It will taste a little more like juice and not so much like pie though.

    The wife, being half Russian and half Ukraine, makes raspberry vodka moonshine (called in Russian Samogon), which is extremely tasty and blows your head completely off your shoulders. Me, being Scot/Irish drinks it like a fish. The only damn problem with it that before you know it you're head is off shoulders and you are on your backside before you even realize it and you're asking for another taste. This sounds about as dangerous as hers! I will pass it to her and see if we get some this Spring or Summer. Thanks for sharing!
