This Key Lime Pie Martini is sinfully delightful! If you enjoy the pie as much as I do, then you MUST try this today in honor of Saturated Saturday! Imagine the smooth creaminess and tangy flavor of a pie packed into a perfect, delectable drink (without all the fat).
I am out of control with this one! I had my in-laws over yesterday and began chatting about how excited I was about my next drink recipe. Of course, my mother-in-law was anxious to “sample” this new delight immediately (I guess it was late enough somewhere). I think she really enjoyed being the guinea pig with this one.
I had to try a few different variations of this recipe to get it just right and I absolutely refused to waste alcohol. That is probably why I was so blissfully happy last night. Let me just say, that dealing with a teething one-year-old has never seemed more manageable.
Utilize all of that wonderful sweetened condensed milk by making a pitcher of these when you have company over. It is such a great way to drink your dessert.
I am totally fine with not taking a vacation this summer…I just need my Key Lime Pie Martini, a little reggae music playing and I am instantly transformed to a Caribbean cruise (and who wants to worry about becoming shipwrecked and getting some nasty stomach virus anyway). Okay, I am totally convincing myself now. What a money saver!!! Hope you all enjoy and CHEERS to anyone else trapped in the humid Midwest for the summer.
If you like this Key Lime Pie Martini, be sure to check out my Cocktail Page for more boozy inspiration. A Georgia Peach Martini or Moscato Dole Whip are a couple of my favorites. I am off to the kitchen to prepare my next creation, Spinach and Mushroom Quiche. Please stay asleep just a little bit longer baby girl!

Lime Pie dessert heaven!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND
if you enjoy a dessert martini~
So glad you liked it!
There’s a restaurant here that makes these, it’s usually an hour or more wait to get in, but it’s worth the wait for this drink.
Hi Jennifer! Luckily, these are easy to make at home and so delicious! I love to try out dessert martinis when I’m out too. Thanks!
This tastes really good but 4 oz of liquor was just way too much for one drink. I suggest no more than 2 oz of vanilla Vodka. This would be the only thing I’d change.
