Wash apples, cut and chop, leaving skin on.
Place apples and even the cores into a medium sized pot.
Add in the sugar and water, stir and bring to a boil. Boil for 6 minutes or so, just until the apples start to become tender.
Remove from heat and add in water. Remove the 4 cores and throw away.
Using a potato masher, mash the apples. Let the mixture sit for 15-30 minutes.
Strain out the liquid, which should be 3 3/4 to 4 cups.
At this point you can place the Green Apple Simple Syrup into a sealed jar and store in your fridge until ready to use.
When ready to assemble the moonshine, combine the Green Apple Simple Syrup, the Everclear and the DeKuyper Sour Apple Pucker in a pitcher or pot and stir until combined.
This will have a light green hue from both the Green Apple Simple Syrup and the Pucker. If you want it a bit more vibrant, take 1/2 cup of the mixture and add to it 2 drops of green food coloring, stir vigorously until combined. Strain that back into the jar/pitcher and mix until combined.
Taste and adjust.
This is STRONG, it's supposed to be. It's not really a cocktail, unless want to serve it over ice and cut it with some club soda or Sprite.
Chill and serve in shot glasses. I like it in the freezer 45 minutes or so before serving. You could also use a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake and pour. Your call.
