Key Lime Martini Recipe

  • To create a zesty, creamy Key Lime Pie Martini, you’ll first need about 2 ounces of divinely rich vanilla vodka.
  • Next, an ounce of citrus vodka balances out the sweetness of the vanilla vodka.
  • One ounce key lime juice.
  • Make sure you have plenty of juicy limes on hand for garnish.
  • One ounce cream of coconut. Oh my goodness this stuff is amaaaaaazing.  You can find it in the international aisle of your grocery store.
  • To make the whole thing extra creamy, use one ounce of heavy whipping cream.
