Shawn's End of the Week Treat!

It's the end of the week, so one of my Specialty Cocktails is in order! This week try my Key Lime Pie Martini! It is absolutely delicious and refreshing, and tastes just like a Key Lime Pie! To start, crush graham crackers on one plate, and pour honey onto another plate. Carefully dip the rim of the martini glass into the honey, and then into the graham crackers. Now you have a tasty graham cracker rim! Next, the most important ingredients!

3 parts Vanilla Vodka
1.5 parts Key Lime Juice
1.5 parts simple syrup (recipe to follow)

Pour liquid ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into the chilled cocktail glass that has been rimmed with crushed graham crackers. Sip and Enjoy!

To make your own simple syrup is quite easy as well! All you need is...

1 cup of water
1 cup of sugar
Dissolve in sauce pan on stove on the low heat setting
Do NOT boil
Stir continuously
Let cool

This batch of simple syrup should last you for up to two weeks if you keep refrigerated! You can use it to make more Key Lime Pie Martini's or other specialty cocktails!

Happy Friday! Cheers!
