Cocktail of the Week: Key Lime Pie Martini

Who says you can't have dessert in a glass? This week's cocktail takes all the iconic flavors of a delicious key lime pie and mixes them with a distinctively smooth vanilla vodka. The result? A perfect Happy Hour sweet treat that won't have to wait until after dinner.

INGREDIENTS

  • 0.5 oz. Amoretti Key Lime Beverage Infusion
  • 2 oz. vanilla vodka
  • 0.75 oz. sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1.5 tablespoon crushed pie crust
  • 3 oz. lime meringue

HOW TO MAKE IT

  1. Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until chilled.
  2. Dip the rim of a martini glass into Karo syrup and onto a plate with crushed pie crust.
  3. Add cocktail shaker contents to the glass and top with meringue.
  4. Garnish with a lime.
