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.
