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.

P.S. Here's my recipe for Candied Nuts that I make my Candied Pecan Liqueur with:


(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.)

2 Oz. Homemade Candied Pecan Liqueur
1 Oz. Kentucky Bourbon
1 Oz. Heavy Cream
2 Dashes El Guapo Chicory-Pecan Bitters

Dip glass rim in some of the butterscotch schnapps and then into the crushed pecans.

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.
