Key Lime Pie Martini

yummy keylime pie martini
Sometimes after dinner I'd rather have a digestif than a heavy dessert. Usually Matt and I like to drink a fine port or his favorite tequila liquor, but for those of you who want the taste of a dessert but not the heaviness, you'll love this cocktail. It tastes just like a wedge of Key Lime Pie, but it's in a martini form. How fabulous is that?

INGREDIENTS (makes 1 martini)

  • 3 tablespoons Licor 43 vanilla liqueur
  • 1 tablespoon lemon-flavored vodka
  • 2 tablespoons key lime juice or fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 lime wedge for garnish
  • 1/8 teaspoon finely crushed cinnamon graham cracker crumbs, for the rim

Chill the martini glass.In a shaker filled with ice combine Liquor 43, vodka, key-lime juice& heavy cream. Shake till shaker is icy cold to hold. Rub rim of chilled martini glass with lime wedge then dip into graham; strain drink into martini glass and enjoy, my friend.
