Pour all three ingredients into a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Shake well, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a twist of lime, and serve.
Not quite right

Very bitter - not at all what i was expecting.

An interesting touch to this drink is to coat the rim of the glass, like they do with margueritas, only use crushed graham crackers.

This was awful. When I made it the half and half curdled and we had to throw it out.
Very sour not made correctly

Something's missing to make this a sweet drink; I think it's Triple sec which often sweetens lemon drop Martini's also.

A good key lime martini should taste just like a fresh slice of the real thing. Sorry, but this is not it.
Try simple syrup
posted by Jennifer @ 04:10PM, 4/13/07
I haven't made this yet, but I make a lemondrop martini that calls for equal parts simple syrup and lemon juice so I'm guessing that adding an ounce of simple syrup to this might make it better.

How about adding a grahm cracker and sugar mix rim! Now that is a dessert martini!

I had this at the bar last night... amazing for sure.
Try a little chocolate

I've made these martinis with 1/2 oz of Creme de Cocao (light or dark-take your pick). Not only does it slightly sweeten the drink but it also adds a nice undertone to the Stoli Vanilla!

Uhg...this wasn't what I expected....In Key West the recipe went something like...vanilla vodka, Licor 43 and key lime juice...shaken then strained into a graham cracker crumb rimmed chilled glass...YUMMIE....but walking was difficult after that....
Help with this one

Tried it and like others, it curtled! I had it at a restaurant and it was my favorite drink, but I obviously need some help with this one cause it was aweful!

I had it at a restaurant, and LOVED it!! The recipe they gave me was
Half and Half
2 sugar cubes
However, I tried this recipe at home as well and it curdled on me. I was hoping to find some sort of trick to it online.

STOLI VANILLA, LIME JUICE, PINEAPPLE JUICE
Tastes so much like Key Lime Pie, you don't need the graham cracker rim. I just don't know the proportions of the ingredients yet.
posted by Arie @ 10:55PM, 9/30/07
We used equal parts pineapple juice, vanilla vodka, liquor 42, and key lime juice.
line the rim with crushed graham crackers. Yum.
posted by armando @ 04:50PM, 10/06/07

Key Lime Martini

Use pineapple juice, not half & half...
posted by t @ 01:52AM, 10/22/07
We made ours like this recipe the first time and dumped them! The second time we used;
shake it all together and pour into a glass with the graham cracker crumbs
The drink is good, but my favorite part was the graham cracker crumbs because they absorbed the flavor which made them taste like real key lime pie!
Key Lime?: Maybe - Martini?: No Way!!!

At what point does this drink earn the right to call itself a Martini? Some of these recipes don't even contain vodka or gin. Is it just based upon the shape of the glass it's served in?
I do mine with rum
posted by chris @ 07:21PM, 11/05/07
I use cruzan vanilla rum 1 1/2 oz
midori or any other melon liqour 1/2 oz and then a splash of roses lime juice. :)
