August 20 is National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day. While some people would think that is one busy and sweet drink, I look at it as an opportunity to make yet another delcious desert cocktail.
Pecans are the only tree nut that grows naturally in North America, and were a major food source for Native Americans during the autumn months because of their plentiful supply. The word “Pecan” is a Native American word of Algonquin origin that was used to describe any nut needing a stone to crack.
Pecans were also used to produce an intoxicating liquid called, Powcohicora.
To celebrate National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day, we will be making a chocolate pecan pie cocktail.
What you will need:
1 oz Praline Pecan Liquer
1 oz Godiva Chocolate Liquer
½ oz Kahlua
Fill rocks glass with ice
Add Praline Pecan Liqueur
Add Godiva Chocolate Liquer
(as a variation, a splash of cream can be added to give it that “ala mode” taste)
You have now created a sweet and delicious after dinner cocktail, a fanstastic drink to sip while relaxing on the couch or soaking in the hot tub.
