You will love this Pecan Pie Martini with Cream de Cacao, Rumchata, Bourbon, and a Pecan-caramel rim. You may find yourself cheating on your go-to Martini- but it’s just a ‘Tini’ Indiscretion
Even Harry and Sally would be proud to partake!
Join the sinfully inviting world of dessert martinis! This is a luscious version of your favorite homemade pecan pie. It’s definitely too next-level to be an everyday martini, but this new fave will be a go-to for those days that are special. The ultimate comfort cocktail, and a beautiful way to celebrate the season.
So where does all this goodness come from? It starts with Pecan trees!
Over 80% of the world’s Pecan crop comes from the US, with Albany, Georgia boasting over 600,000 pecan trees. The Pecan is heart-healthy with antioxidants, 19 vitamins and minerals, and healthy fat. Wow, Great to have healthy notes in our Martini!
It is thought that the Pecan pie was created by the industrious French of New Orleans, though the earliest known recipes come from Texas. While the pie was around in the late 1800s, a Pecan Pie recipe on the back of Karo syrup propelled it into the mainstream.
Now we get to the Martini! Some say the cocktail came from a drink called the Martinez, from the town of Martinez, California- establishing itself around the time of the Gold rush. Dessert martinis are a pretty recent phenomenon. Put a little ‘Tini’ in your life. Frickin’ Amazing Dessert ‘tini’s’ at Cuss Kitchen.
