We started the day with rain and ended with a nice 71 degrees outside. As it’s now October, that is a NICE way to end the day here in Minnesota. My whole family (including the dog) went for a walk after grilling some steaks tonight. When we got back from our mini adventure, I decided I needed (wanted) a desert cocktail. I had purchased a shooter of the Blue Chair Bay- Key Lime Rum Cream out of curiosity the last time I was at the liquor store. It was calling my name tonight and said… make me into something AMAZING! So I did!
I am usually a red wine (cabernet) and beer type of gal. I also love plain margaritas on the rocks. The super sweet cocktails that I used to drink frequently in my early twenties just seem to be too sweet for me most days now.
Enter in the Key Lime Colada Martini. This is a sweet drink, don’t get me wrong. I just was really in the mood for it so it works. If you hadn’t figured out by the name, this beverage is like a cross between a Pina Colada and key lime pie. You are welcome.
Key Lime Colada Martini
1 shot Blue Chair Bay- Key Lime Rum Cream
1 shot whipped vodka (or vanilla vodka would work too)
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1. Measure all ingredients into a shaker. Add a handful of ice.
2. Shake for 10-15 seconds. Pour into martini glass (or whatever you have).
3. Garnish with a lime and ENJOY!
Anyone have any other good recipes for the Blue Chair Bay- Key Lime Rum Cream? I’d love to hear about other ways to mix it!
