Introduction: Bourbon Pecan Pie Martini

Picture of Bourbon Pecan Pie Martini

I'm pretty sure there's not enough pecan pie in the world, never mind bourbon pecan pie.  The flaky crust, the gooey filling, the flavor, the pecans...  Oh, delicious pecans, we need more of you!

In tribute of this classic Southern dessert, I'd like to present the Bourbon Pecan Pie Martini that's sweet and rich and nutty.  Kind of like life, right?

Step 1: Rimming

Moisten the rim of the glass and gently press into turbinado sugar (or sugar in the raw).

Step 2: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
This recipe calls for:
  • ½ oz Bourbon
  • 1 oz Vodka
  • 1½ oz Pecan Liqueur
  • 1 oz Wedding Cake Vodka
If you don't particularly care for bourbon, do a bit less than ½ oz, or eliminate it and add ½ oz more vodka for a Pecan Pie Martini.

Step 3: Mix and Serve

Shake with ice and strain into prepared glass.

Sounds lovely. Also - I like the glitter story in your bio!

There is a Cornish Pasty restuarant nearby that serves a drink called the angry redhead - any relation?

Thank you!

And no... the name came from a drunken night in college with a friend. I liked it so much that it stuck. :)

If you call it BOURBON pecan pie martini, the main ingredient should be Bourbon, not vodka. You have 2 oz of vodka to 1/2 oz of bourbon. Then you state if you don't like bourbon then use more vodka, so is it still a bourbon pecan pie martini ? Sorry I am a whisk(e)y/bourbon connoisseur and a mixologist so it touched a nerve, but the cocktail sound good, it's just the name

AngryRedhead (author)Jok3r6632013-12-23

Don't get caught up in the name - get caught up in the PIE! It's all about the pie, man, and if you've ever had one, you'll notice that there's only a slight hint of bourbon because the pie only has a hint of bourbon and a lot of pecan and pie and butter and delicious other stuff. Also, there's only 1 oz of vodka unless you want just a Pecan Pie Martini in which case there's 1½ oz of vodka, and in my opinion, to call it a martini, it really needs a base of gin or vodka.

Give it a whirl! I'm sure you'll like it. :)
