Pecan Pie Martini

You know, it’s a funny thing… my husband says he doesn’t have much of a sweet tooth. But I’m not really buying it.

For example, I made this cocktail for him, told him what is was, he took a sip, then his face totally lit up!

Now, if you are someone who’s “not much into sweets” and someone offers you a “Pecan Pie Martini” you’ll probably take a sip or two and be done with it. Right? Not this gentleman… not a drop was left.

Sure the bourbon, and pecan liqueur could have had something to do with it. But I say NAY! I think someone needs to admit they love sweets just as much as I do…

Pecan Pie Martini

Serves 2

1/2 cup turbinado sugar
1/2 ounce praline pecan liqueur
2 pecan halves

Pour the praline pecan liqueur into a shallow plate. Dip the rims of the martini glasses into the the plate with the pecan liqueur then dip them into the plate with the turbinado sugar. Place one pecan half in each of the martini glasses.

2 ounces Praline pecan liqueur
1.5 ounces caramel cream liqueur
1.5 ounces bourbon
.5 ounce Torani caramel syrup
1 ounce heavy cream

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Add all liquid ingredients into the cocktail shaker, and shake for 20-30 seconds. Pour into prepared martini glasses.

I would drink that just for the crumbles on the border! (the booze and the buts are a plus but the border crumbles look great)

This is straight up genius. How scrumptious!!

This looks TOO tempting. Love the frosting on the glasses.


16 sara @CaffeIna January 30, 2011 at 1:14 pm

I can’t think straight right now! I’m completely taken by these pictures. But one thing is sure in my mind: I’m in love with your cocktails experiments! I think you really are bringing baking and your blog to a whole new level. A level that I really really like. Great job Josie! What’s next? You should try a macarons cocktail :)


17 briarrose January 30, 2011 at 3:39 pm

Yum! Fabulous drink.


18 Evan Thomas January 30, 2011 at 4:33 pm

I love the sugary rim! Great idea! Overall, this sounds excellent.


19 Anne January 30, 2011 at 6:48 pm

You had me at pecan pie. This looks scrumptious!


20 Ang January 30, 2011 at 8:46 pm

My husband would flip for this! I’m totally making this for our trip this coming week to the mountains. All warm and snuggly in the snow with two gorgeous looking martinis. Thanks for sharing!


21 Tiffany January 31, 2011 at 5:01 am

I am three days away from ending my ‘no alcohol’ fast and think I know the first drink I am going to make! Pecan liqueur?!?!? What a genius concept!


22 Courtney January 31, 2011 at 6:18 am

Oh my goodness. I don’t even have the words to adequately describe how amazing this looks. It’s only a little after 9 am, and I find myself wanting to make one of these right now. :)


23 Paul Byron Downs January 31, 2011 at 6:22 am

I have never heard of Pecan Liqueur before this post. Cocktails looks delicious and great for a snowy night by the fireplace.



24 Kita February 1, 2011 at 3:57 pm

Excuse my language but, Oh hells yeah! I love a sweet martini and this really looks like it would hit the spot. Thanks for posting it! Will I be able to find pecan liquor at a regular spirit store or will I be on the hunt?


25 Daydreamer Desserts February 1, 2011 at 4:04 pm

Hi Kita, thanks for stopping by! I bought mine at BevMo, hopefully there is one near you. Otherwise, you might have to order it on-line. -Josie


26 DessertForTwo February 1, 2011 at 5:31 pm

Wow! Delish!

I’m afraid I could drink too many of these, then still have room for a piece of pecan pie. Oh, the calories! :)


27 amy February 2, 2011 at 9:39 pm

OMG!!! I am going to have to make this for V-day!! My man and I love pecan pie, so making into a yummy drink just brings this to a whole new level!!
Thanks for the great recipe:)


28 Alison @ Ingredients, Inc. February 3, 2011 at 3:30 pm

Wow! This is so fabulous. I love this idea. Great way to twist a recipe and make it brand new

This is a good lookin drink. However, it is NOT a martini.

A martini is Gin, Vermouth, and a olive garnish. That is IT.

Why can we not call our newly invented things, newly conceived names?


30 Daydreamer Desserts March 10, 2011 at 7:44 pm

I guess there are two schools of thought on martini naming… you can guess which is mine. ;)


31 H-Dizzle March 11, 2011 at 9:45 am

I suppose. I am not offended by the fact that a martini glass being used now signifies a drink with any ingredients in it as being a martini. I never liked pure gin and dry vermouth anyways–tastes disgusting in my opinion.

I just ask, what is the point of giving a thing some very specific name, if only to open the definition to almost any possible thing?


32 Daydreamer Desserts March 11, 2011 at 9:54 am

I totally get your point.


33 Kerstin February 16, 2012 at 10:16 am

Which brands are you using. I am having trouble finding Caramel Cream Liqueur and Praline Pecan Liqueur. Also which bourbon do you prefer?
