Preheat oven to 300°F (149°C). Then line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat and spray with non-stick spray. Then set aside.
In a small mixing bowl, vigorously whisk egg white with bourbon and vanilla until very frothy. Set aside.
Using another bowl, combine sugar, cayenne pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg spice and set aside.
Add pecans into a large bowl, then add egg white mixture first, followed by sugar mixture. Stir pecans to coat completely.
Spread pecans over the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for about 30- 35 minutes, stirring the pecans every 10 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes before serving.
