Key Lime Martini

Ah, the weekend.  Time to relax a bit, and indulge a bit.  
How about a Key Lime Pie Martini?  

I had my first key lime pie martini at the Abaco Inn (Bahamas) earlier this month.  I promised I would share a recipe for this flavorful rich drink.
Ke Ke is a key lime flavored cream liqueur and "key" to making this martini.  Rimming the glass with crushed graham cracker gives an even more authentic taste to the drink.  Just rub a cut lemon around the rim of the glass and then dip the edge in the crumbs.
  • 1 1/2 oz Ke Ke key lime liqueur
  • 1 1/2 oz vanilla vodka
  • 1/3 oz Rose's lime juice
  • 1/3 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 oz half 'n half 
Shake with ice in a cocktail shaker, strain and pour into graham cracker rimmed glass.
A Key Lime Pie Martini is a rich, dessert-like drink.  It is something you sip, not gulp.  I prefer it as an after dinner treat.

A tray of these martini shots would be fun for a holiday party.  

Have a wonderful weekend and see you on Monday.
