Sorry for the week off folks – I’ve been busy prepping and planning for an upcoming presentation at the NY Bar and Wine Show in just over one week (you can read more about it here).
However, I couldn’t let another Friday pass us by without featuring a great summer cocktail recipe to take us through the weekend.
But wait! There’s more!
With Sunday being one of the best days out of the year, National Martini Day, let’s plan to take in a few posts over the course of the weekend to celebrate the martini and the incalculable number of ways to make your perfect drink.
Although certainly not a martini by definition, I must say that this Key Lime Pie cocktail recipe is one of my guilty pleasure favorites to imbibe in during the summer months (we’re officially underway starting June 21!). The creamy texture, beautiful color and slightly tart flavors imparted in this drink team up together for this cocktail served beautifully up in a martini glass. Make sure to grab one of your larger 6-8 oz. martini glasses – this recipe will keep your glass full for a while when the cream ingredients froth up!
