Although pumpkins tend to get all the love, pecan pie deserves more of our attention--especially in cocktail form.

Martini Instructions

Add a handful of ice to a cocktail shaker. Then measure out your ingredients, and pour them into the shaker and gently mix the drink. Pour the pecan pie martini into a glass and serve.

Optional Garnishment Instructions

Combine the pecans and brown sugar in a food processor. Pulse the ingredients and put them in a bowl. Then pour the maple syrup into a saucer and dip the top of the martini glass in the syrup. Further rim the top of the martini glass by dipping it into the brown sugar mixture and giving it a small twist.
