Key lime pie martini
This is a seriously yummy cocktail...
Somehow, get your hands on some graham cracker crumbs - steal 'em when your kid isn't looking, then crush and add a bit of sugar. Or, if you're child-free, you can get fancy and buy the cocktail rimmer version at Anderson's. Run a cut lime along the rim of a martini glass, then dip into the crumb mixture.
Now put this in a cocktail shaker:
1/2 cup fresh-squeezed lime juice (it makes a difference)
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup Licor 43, a vanilla-flavored liqueur that I found locally at Flick's
Shake with ice and pour. Makes two drinks.
That cute photo isn't mine. I am very envious of whoever can do that cool thing with the lime.
