Pecan Pie Martini is a fancy dessert cocktail that’s easy to make at home. This creamy and sweet boozy drink has all the flavor of pecan pie.

How To Serve

The glass rims are coated with caramel sauce and chopped pecans for decoration and extra flavor. For more decadence, add a spoonful of whipped cream to each glass. So perfect for any kind of fall or holiday party.

Only 4 ingredients are needed to make this martini: Rumchata, Creme de Cacao, bourbon, and half-and-half.

Even though this is a bourbon cocktail, it has a totally smooth taste and I recommend it for people who don’t typically like bourbon drinks. I like using Maker’s Mark, but use whichever bourbon is your favorite. There are so many different ones to try these days.

This recipe makes 3 drinks but can easily be scaled down or up. You will need a cocktail shaker.

Recipe Tip

Rumchata is also really good in coffee. I sometimes use it instead of half-and-half.

  1. It’s an enjoyable cocktail and might be good warm, too. But unfortunately doesn’t taste like pecan pie. The horchata is over powered (by the coaco?) but even if it wasn’t I’m not sure cinnamon makes me think of pecan pie.

  2. I made the pecan pie martinis but mine were white not caramel colored as shown. How did you get the brown tint?
