With the warmer weather finally coming I’ve been trying to make a few fun beverages each month.  I like to come up with new beverages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, as something a little different to enjoy on the weekends.   It’s fun to use seasonal fruits in new drinks.

Sip on this refreshing Key Lime Pie Mojito all summer long!

I usually can’t find fresh key limes in my area but I was recently sent some from Melissa’s Produce and I wasn’t about to waste them.   One of my favorite cocktails to make with lime is a mojito.  Searching for mojito recipes I came across one for a Key Lime Pie Mojito.  It sounded really delicious and I knew it would be perfect for sipping out on our porch.

I needed to go to the liquor store for a few of the ingredients and just didn’t have anytime to do it.  I finally managed to run on my lunch time one day since the liquor store is close to my work.  Notice I didn’t say my lunch hour.  I only get 30 minutes for lunch each day so it’s often hard to run out and get anything done in that amount of time.

Everything you need to make a Key Lime Pie Mojito!

I actually made this cocktail twice because the directions said to add heavy cream.   In my head I knew there was no way key lime juice and heavy cream were going to mix but I tried it anyhow.  Cue instant curdling.  I knew better and I did it anyway.   It’s like I think it’s going to work this time every time I try.  I ended up eliminating the cream and it worked perfectly the second time around.

I can't get enough of this Key Lime Pie Mojito

The graham cracker crumb rim adds a lot of flavor and reminded me of key lime pie.  The vanilla vodka worked well with the fresh key lime juice.   I didn’t have any fresh mint ready in my garden yet so I had to buy some at the store but it was pretty strong and worked well.  I loved the tart lime with the sweet simply syrup and the vanilla vodka.  It all really worked together and did taste like a key lime pie!  This is the perfect warm weather sipper.
