Perfectly Pecan Pie Martini

Christmas Parties, holiday gatherings, cookie exchanges...  So many occasions to celebrate this season.  We are preparing for another fabulous annual Christmas party at our house.  Chad and I love having our closest friends and family over for a celebration.  We will be serving appetizers, desserts and ooohhhh so incredible cocktail creations.

The cocktail lineup will be worth talking about.  Cocktails served up in shot glasses, so everyone can have a little of everything.  This year our cocktail menu will include this fabulous Bourbon Pecan Pie Martini, smooth creamy, sweet and ohhh so nutty, this fantastic beverage is sure to be a hit at your party too.

Want to make your drinks more fancy for a more intimate fancy occasion?  Try rimming the cocktail glasses with toasted pecans to really make a show stopper and add pecan flavor.

Enjoy your parties and remember...  A simple party equals a fun party!  Festive cocktails and quick and easy finger foods may be the best way to go!
