This recipe uses ingredients found most well-stocked bars, which I put together after many requests for a Key lime pie martini from customers at a restaurant I bartended for. To make it extra special, run a lime around the edge of the martini glass and dip it in crushed graham crackers after chilling. Tastes just like a key lime pie! This recipe makes a single martini. Garnish with lime, if desired.

Cook's Notes:

I prefer to only use the cream if it is a dessert drink, as it may be a bit heavy.

Use half-and-half in place of heavy cream if you want the creaminess but prefer a slightly lighter dose of it or if it's simply what you have on hand.

I tried it both with and without the cream and prefer it without the cream; it has more flavor without the cream. I rimmed the glass with a lime and dipped the glass in sugar which offset the sour of the drink nicely. I cut the vanilla vodka in half and added lime vodka to make up the difference since I did not have sweetened lime juice. Read More
