10. Everclear Apple Pie Party Shot Drink
(This drink tastes exactly like apple pie)
In a large pot, pour 1 gallon of apple juice and apple cider, each. To this, add 4 to 6 three-inch long cinnamon sticks, and 1½ cups of sugar. Place the pot over your gas burner and bring it to a boil over medium heat. Keep stirring until the sugar dissolves. Turn off your burner and let it cool down to room temperature. Finally, pour 1-liter Everclear, and stir mix evenly. Discard the cinnamons and refrigerate until it is chilled enough. Decorate with apple slices and serve in shot glasses.
Everclear has been prohibited in nine of the US states because of its high ethanol content (and the potential dangers associated). Hence, drinking Everclear straight up is not a great idea.
