We love the Florida Keys and there is nothing better than their famous key lime pie and anything that tastes like it! A friend, now a very good friend, (lol) gave me this recipe that he had received from the White Tarpon in Key West. It really does taste like key lime pie and, if you want to go all out, you can even add a little vanilla ice cream for an even richer taste. Woohoo!
Key Lime Pie Martini
- 2-oz. vanilla vodka
- 1-oz. Licor 43
- 1-oz. Rose’s lime juice
- 1-1/2 oz. sweet & sour bar mix (see easy recipe below for your own homemade mix)
- Garnish: graham cracker crumbs, lime slices, vanilla ice cream
Sweet & Sour Bar Mix
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup lime juice
- 1 cup lemon juice
Prepare bar mix by heating sugar and water in a small saucepan. Stir constantly until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in lime and lemon juice then store in refrigerator. Make sure it is cool prior to mixing with cocktail.
Tp make martini, add 1/2 cup of crushed ice to a shaker then pour in martini ingredients and shake well.
Prepare martini glasses by rubbing rims with a slice of lime then dipping into graham cracker crumbs. Pour drink into glasses, garnish with a lime slice and enjoy!
