Pecan Pie Shots

Aren’t these just the most delicious looking shots!? Since making my home in Georgia a few months ago, I’ve been trying to adopt all the wonderful foods and customs associated with this lovely southern state. So, in honor of an old Southern favorite, pecan pie, and a way to warm up this Florida girl, I had to whip up this delightfully warming Pecan Pie Martini Shot.

It’s super easy to make and can be made by the pitcher for holiday get-togethers. I like to serve it as the guests arrive to get the party started.
