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
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.

1.5 ounces caramel cream liqueur
1.5 ounces bourbon
