These days it seems like every bar and restaurant has their own set of specialty cocktails. Usually the bartenders are quite secretive about their creative concoctions, but sometimes, if you're lucky, they'll reveal one of their secrets. A few Thursdays ago, I was fortunate enough to meet a bartender who shared one of his recipes with me. It was a delicious key lime pie martini with an amazing treat on the rim. Now, as long as you promise not to tell, I'm going to share his recipe with you! For the best key lime pie martini recipe,
Key Lime Pie Martini
