Full Answer

To make one serving of Lee's key lime martini, fill a martini shaker with ice, and add 2 shots of vanilla-flavored vodka, 1/2 shot of key lime juice, 2 tablespoons of cream of coconut and 1 shot of pineapple juice. Shake well, and pour into a martini glass to serve.

Lagasse's key lime pie martini calls for rimming the glass with graham cracker crumbs. First, pour graham cracker crumbs into a shallow dish, then rub a lime wedge around the rim of a martini glass to wet it, and roll or tamp the edge of the glass in the graham cracker crumbs. Chill the glass. Fill a martini shaker halfway with ice, and add 6 tablespoons of vanilla-flavored vodka, 1/4 cup of key lime liqueur, 2 tablespoons pineapple juice and 2 tablespoons heavy cream. Shake well to blend, pour into the prepared martini glass, and garnish with a lime wedge. Lagasse recommends using KeKe Beach Key Lime Liqueur to make this drink.
