German Chocolate Cake Martini


German Chocolate Cake Martini
If you're like me, you probably thought that the German Chocolate Cake was created by some little ole grandmother in Germany.  Actually, it is named after its creator, Sam German (an American), who came up with the recipe back in the mid 1850's.  Pecans, Coconut, and Dark Chocolate, were some of the ingredients that made the cake unique.  With a little effort, transforming the cake's ingredients into a cocktail, is rather simple, and certainly worth the effort.  Cheers, to the German Chocolate Cake Martini.  Enjoy!
1 oz. Pecan Liqueur ( Disaronno or Frangelico is a great substitue)
2 oz. Half & Half
1 Tbsp. of Coconut Pecan Frosting (Betty Crocker, mmmm) 
1 tspn. finely chopped Pecans
1 tspn. shredded Coconut
1 tspn. Dark Chocolate shavings
Take a Tbsp. of the Frosting, and slather the rim of a Martini glass.  Set the glass in the freezer while you make your cocktail.  Pour the 5 spirits (feel free to adjust their quantities to what you like), and the Half & Half, into an ice filled cocktail shaker.  Cover, shake well, and then set aside.  Retrieve your chilled glass from the freezer, and strain your cocktail into the glass.  Sprinkle the Pecans, Coconut and Chocolate shavings over the top of your drink, and just like delicious German Chocolate Cake Martini.  Bottoms up!
