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.
