Happy Hour: Key Lime Pie Martini

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
From W Hotel

2 oz Vanilla Vodka
1/2 oz Cointreau
splash Frangelico
2 1/2 oz Pineapple juice
juice of one lime, plus two slices for garnish
crushed graham crackers, garnish

  1. Wipe one of the lime slices around the rim of a martini glass. Dip the wet rim in the graham cracker crumbs.
  2. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the vodka, Cointreau, Frangelico, pineapple and lime juices.
  3. Shake hard and well to form ice crystals.
  4. Strain into prepared martini glass. Garnish with unused slice of lime. Enjoy!

I tried one for the first time at a P.F. Changs and it was one of the best drinks I have ever had. The graham cracker crust makes it absolutely divine!

YES! I had one (or maybe four?) of these in Chicago a couple years ago and have tried various recipes since then trying to find one I like. I will be sure to give this one a whirl. Thanks, Yum!
