The Key Lime Pie Martini continues a historic trend of people trying to transform desserts into cocktails, and specifically martinis. The Key Lime Pie Martini may even claim to be one of the most famous of this group, as it seems to be more popular than the Red Velvet Cake Martini, or the Caramel Apple Martini.

This could be attributed to the fact that the key lime pie has a considerable fanbase, as it is may be the only dessert with its own festival! The Key Lime Festival is held every July 4th weekend in Key West, Florida, the birthplace of the key lime pie.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ ounces of vanilla vodka
  • ½ ounce of triple sec orange liqueur
  • 1 ounce pineapple juice
  • ½ ounce of lime cordial

Preparation:

  1. Rim a chilled martini glass with crushed graham crackers.
  2. Pour the vanilla vodka, orange liqueur, pineapple juice, and lime cordial into a cocktail shaker with ice.
  3. Shake well.
  4. Strain into a cocktail glass.

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Martini glass

One can choose a clear vodka for the martini, but a vanilla vodka helps to add to the dessert theme of the cocktail. Interestingly enough, the key lime pie may have been a result of the chef of Key West’s first millionaire, William Curry, who amassed his fortune through ship salvaging. It was popular at the time with sponge fishermen, who may have been eating the key lime pie before.

Although the origin is disputed, the location certainly isn’t – which is why the key lime pie is named after Key West, Florida. The limes in the Key West region are more tart than usual, which is what gives key lime pie its distinct taste. The Key Lime Pie martini tastes best with fresh pineapple juice, and is a great way to enjoy one of the most celebrated dessert martinis in the world. You don’t have to be in Key West to enjoy a Key Lime Pie martini!
