Key Lime Pie Martini


While perusing recipes over the weekend, I somehow stumbled upon this insanely delicious concoction. I found there are many variations, some using pineapple juice, sweet and sour mix, coconut rum, and so on. I took two recipes I found, swapped out a couple of ingredients and thought it tasted exactly like the dessert version. A slice of heaven in a glass.

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp. Licor 43
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla vodka
  • 2 tbsp. Key Lime juice (or 2 tbsp. fresh lime juice)
  • 2 tbsp. heavy whipping cream

Garnish

  • Lime wedge
  • 1/2 tsp. Graham cracker crumbs (can mix with sugar for a sweeter taste)

Directions

  1. Chill martini glass.
  2. Fill a shaker with ice and combine Licor 43, vanilla vodka and lime juice.
  3. Shake until shaker is icy cold. 
  4. Open shaker, add the heavy cream, and shake again. 
  5. Rub chilled martini glass rim with lime wedge, dip into graham crackers on a place, and strain drink into martini glass.
  6. Garnish with a lime slice (optional). 
  7. Enjoy!
