Apple Spiced Grappa – Recipe 🍎🥃

This homemade spiced grappa will warm you up during the cooler autumn months!

I go apple picking with my family every September and always end up with tons of apples. I like to make pies and cider typically, but one of my favorite recipes is apple spiced grappa! It’s something that takes time and is usually ready for Thanksgiving. I like to serve it warm after a big meal or on a cold night and it always hits the spot! You can use this recipe with any fruit you like but apple is perfect for this time of year!


  • 750 ml homemade or store bought Grappa
  • 1 qt sliced apples
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 4 cloves
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar


  1. Fill a large jar with the sliced apples, cinnamon stick, vanilla bean, cloves, and sugar.
  2. Pour in grappa to cover.
  3. Seal and store in a dark place (basement, cellar) for 3-4 weeks. 
  4. When ready, strain and seal again, let age for another month. 
  5. Serve warm during the fall months!
