Description

The Key Lime Martini is a stunning cocktail that tastes just like key lime pie…but even better! Two secret ingredients make it work.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 ounces Licor 43*
  • 1/2 ounce vodka
  • 1/2 ounce key lime juice (bottled)**
  • 1 ounce heavy cream
  • Graham crackers, crushed for the rim
  • For the garnish: Lime wheel

Instructions

  1. Wet the rim of the cocktail glass. Place finely crushed graham crackers on a plate, and tilt the outside rim of the glass into the mixture so that it coats the outer rim. 
  2. Place the Licor 43, vodka, key lime juice, and heavy cream in a cocktail shaker with 2 handfuls ice. Shake 15 seconds until cold.
  3. Strain the drink into the prepared glass. Garnish with a lime wheel and serve. 

Notes

*For converting to tablespoons, 1 ounce = 2 tablespoons. 

**Licor 43 is a Spanish vanilla liqueur you can find at most liquor stores and even grocery stores. Key lime juice is sold bottled and available in most grocery stores.
