It's that time of year again, when chunky sweaters warm your body, crunchy leaves blanket the ground and cocktails warm the cockles of your heart.

But have you ever had apple pie vodka? Probably not, and it's the perfect time to make some. In honor of National Vodka Day on Friday (Oct. 4,) this apple pie vodka recipe joins together all of the yummy ingredients from a more traditional apple pie (the food) and infuses them in vodka.

Chill the concoction up for up to three days, and voila!

Enjoy it straight as a shot, or mix it into drinks. Feel free to add a little topping of whipped cream and more cinnamon sugar to make it extra yummy. even suggests using the apple pie vodka in perhaps a Moscow mule, or maybe even a mimosa? The world is your oyster.
