Pecan Pie Martinis start with Pecan trees!

Wow, Great to have healthy notes in our creamy and delicious Martini!
It is thought that the Pecan pie was created by the industrious French of New Orleans. Although 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 made it mainstream.
