My ol' lady requested this for a party next weekend. I have never done this before and would not suggest using a especially nice bottle of bourbon. Makers Mark, which I typically do not buy because it is over priced, was on sale so I used a bottle of it. My plan was to use Buffalo Trace.
I took two cups of pecans, soaked them for about 30 minutes. I then drained them and mixed them with Cayenne, Sea Salt, and Black Pepper. After that, I roasted them for 20 mintes at 300 degrees. Roasting them helps bring out the oils of the nuts. I then put them in a mason jar and filled with bourbon. -will report back in 1 week, but should be interesting.
It doesn't have to be fun to be fun.
