Like key lime pie in liquid form, this martini is a mix of zingy lime, citrus and sweetness with fresh lime slices and whipped cream on top. This version of the refreshing dessert not only conjures visions of palm trees and beach towels, it’ll get you tipsy, too.

The hard stuff: Two kinds of flavored vodka — key lime and cake — plus Curaçao liqueur.

Where it’s served: Saints Pub and Patio, 2329 Iowa St.

What it costs: $6

When it’s on special: Thursdays. Specialty and seasonal cocktails are $4.

Other libations at this location: Salt and Pepper Martini (pepper vodka, vermouth, olive juice, bitters), Sinners Punch (strawberry rum, pineapple, cranberry, Sprite, sour and strawberry puree), more cocktails, inexpensive wine by the glass or bottle, beer and a list of (mostly) sweet and fruity shots.

— Drink up. Stay classy. Don’t forget to tip your bartender. And let us know if you want to suggest a libation for this feature — email sshepherd@ljworld.com or Tweet her at Twitter.com/saramarieshep. Cheers.
