PECAN PIE MARTINI and Homemade Pecan Pie Vodka Recipe


Got a sweet tooth? Love pecans? If you do then you'll love my Pecan Pie Martini recipe. It has all the same ingredients as a pecan pie except the crust. You get that rich, deep caramel flavor of the pecan pie filling and the pecan nut rim brings it home.

Homemade Candied Pecan Vodka Recipe:

I used Pinnacle's Pecan Pie Vodka but, if you can't find it, you can make your own pecan pie vodka by infusing a cup of chopped, candied pecans into a 750 ml. bottle of decent vodka for a minimum of a week then straining out the nuts and bottling.

Here's  my recipe for Candied Nuts:


(P.S. make an extra batch of these delicious nuts to serve alongside the cocktail. Dipping them in a nice dark chocolate is also very good.)

PECAN PIE MARTINI

Ingredients:
2 Oz. Pinnacle Pecan Pie Vodka
1 Oz. Woodford Reserve Bourbon
1 Oz. Half & Half
2 Dashes El Guapo Chicory-Pecan Bitters
1 Pinch Sea Salt
1 C. Ice

Garnish: Crushed Pecan Rim

Tools: Cocktail shaker

Glass: Cocktail or coupe

Directions:
Dip glass rim in some of the butterscotch schnapps and then into the crushed pecans.
Chill glass in freezer.
Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake until well chilled.
Strain into the chilled glass and serve.

A LITTLE HISTORY OF PECAN PIE

 Pecan Pie is a classic southern dessert said to have originated when the French migrated to New Orleans and were introduced to nuts by the native population, though the Karo Syrup company claims it created pecan pie as a way to use it's syrup. The first record of a pecan pie recipe was in 1925 though it didn't show up in recipe books until the 1940s.

I hope it doesn't need to be said that if you have nut allergies you don't try this martini? If you don't have a nut allergy than go nuts and enjoy.

National Pecan Pie Day is July 12th.
