Key Lime Pie Martini

Hey guys, I know I’ve been MIA this week! We got ourselves into phase 2 (stairs and hallway) of our wood flooring project. To make it up to you guys, I’ve got something extra special for ya this Friday…

It’s a Cocktail Friday VIDEO POST from the hubs!!!!! :) Yes. we. did. hah

Anyhow, ya’ll KNOW I’m a fan of Pinnacle Vodka (See: Strawberry Shortcake Martini & Grown up Hot Chocolate)… well, they were kind enough to send me a few of their new flavors!

One of which is…. KEY LIME WHIPPED!

I am pretty much obsessed with all things key lime. So this drink is no exception.

It’s out. of. this. world.

BIG THANKS to Pinnacle for providing this vodka!

Alright, without further ado, I give you the hubs in his first solo video post:

NOTE: Pinnacle provided the vodka used in this recipe. However, please know that my opinion of this brand is MY OWN, and is not skewed by free product. I may have gotten the first bottle of vodka for free, but I certainly will be going back to buy another! I would never write about a product unless I really truly love it. Period.

    Just FYI, Pinnacle has AWESOME flavors, and this is coming from someone who HATES vodka. The bar I work at just got in Cotton Candy, Root Beer, and Coconut (which smells just like Malibu) We use Pinnacle for all our signature martinis if you’d like me to send you the recipes to test out. We have a blast trying to create new drinks everytime we get new bottles in. Have to say though, The Hubs’ key lime martini is almost exactly like the one we came up with-simplicity is great!

    Oh man what a great drink!!! I need to try this ASAP!

    Nice job but I think you may have invented a vodka ‘margarita’ rather than a lime martini – but wait that would be a ‘gimlet’ – serious lime lovers will find that freshly squeezed key lime juice and the intoxicant of their choice will suffice no matter what you call it – white rum would be nice – oh wait that’s a daiquiri…

    I love Pinnacle vodka, but definitely didn’t know they had a key lime flavor! This might just be the cocktail of the summer :) PS: The graham cracker around the rim is exactly perfect.
