Ah, this frozen drink, similar to a piña colada, brings to mind our vacations in Key West, the soft breezes, music floating on the air and great times along Duval Street. The first Key Lime Colada we ever had was at Rick’s Tree Bar on Duval and we instantly fell in love with the refreshing taste. They wouldn’t part with their recipe but, after some experimentation, I made one that was pretty close. And it sure was fun trying!
Key Lime Colada
- 1 oz. Liquor 43
- 2 oz. Vanilla Rum (or try the new Key Lime Rum)
- 1-1/2 oz. Key Lime Juice
- 1 oz. Pina Colada Mix or coconut cream
- 1-1/2 oz. Pineapple Juice
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 cup ice
Combine all of the above ingredients in a blender. Prepare margarita or martini glasses by rubbing lime around the edge and dipping the rim in graham cracker crumbs. Pour Key Lime Colada mixture into 2 glasses and garnish with slices of lime.
