Want to drink your dessert?

We couldn’t think of a tastier and easier way than with this Key Lim Martini, a sweet and zesty combination of cake-flavored vodka, lime juice and liqueur. One sip and you too will wonder how a key lime cupcake got in your cocktail!


1½oz cake-flavored vodka
1oz key lime juice
½oz Cointreau
½oz simple syrup
½oz heavy cream

Light corn syrup
Graham cracker crumbs, to rim glass


To rim the martini glass, spread a thin layer of corn syrup around the rim and dip into graham cracker crumbs.

Mix cake vodka, key lime juice, Cointreau, simple syrup and heavy cream in a cocktail shaker with a handful of ice. Shake and strain into prepared glass.

Serves 1
