The best thing Florida has ever offered the nation is perhaps key lime pie shot. It is a harmonious symphony of well-balanced tropical flavours—sweet but tangy, creamy but light.
This liquid rendition of the pie includes RumChata and key lime juice, which is tastier and more flavourful than regular lime juice.
Whipped cream-flavoured vodka is used to mimic the traditional topping. This dessert shot is ideal as a pick-me-up after a meal or as a trademark summer beverage. Graham cracker rim edge garnish will give you the impression that you are lounging in the Key West sun.
What Is A Key Lime Pie Shot?
Using graham crackers and whipped cream on top, a key lime pie shot is made with whipped cream vodka, key lime juice, and simple syrup. It actually has key lime pie shots
This shot is great for any easter or summertime occasion thanks to its acidic and sweet flavour. This shot is appropriate for all occasions, including poolside gatherings, backyard barbecues, after-dinner beverages, and afternoons spent with friends on your front porch.
For the time it takes to prepare, the sweet dish in this picture tastes surprisingly nice. If you serve it at any gathering, it will undoubtedly be a hit. Check out the Key Lime Pie Shot.
Why Do We Enjoy This Key Lime Drink?
One of my all-time favourite sweets is key lime pie. With a creamy aftertaste and the addition of a graham cracker crust, it achieves the ideal balance of sweet and sour flavours. I’ve combined whipped cream vodka, lime juice, and a bit of Rumchata to make this into a shot. You can make dessert in a glass by adding whipped cream on top of that.
For this dessert-inspired shot, graham cracker crumbs can be optionally used as a glass rim. Before serving, you can also add a few graham cracker crumbs on top of the whipped cream if you don’t feel like rimming the glasses.
Tips For Making The Best Key Lime Pie Shot:
Although making this shot is rather simple, here are some suggestions for improving its flavour:
- One shot should be fired. What adds to the overall flavour of the drink is the mixture of the graham crackers on the ranch and the whipped cream on top.
- If you don’t have whipped cream vodka, you can substitute ordinary vodka and, for a creamier taste, consider adding a little Irish cream. While you can substitute, whipped cream vodka has the greatest flavour.
- Use 75 oz of key lime juice rather than 1 oz if you want it to take a bit less time.
- Freshly squeezed key lime juice or juice from a bottle both work well.
How To Make This Drink?
Making the rim and garnish for this drink takes the longest. This one can still be prepared in 5 minutes or less.
Equipment includes a cocktail shaker, a Hawthorne strainer, a jigger, and shot glasses.
- Whipped Cream Vodka, 1 oz.
- Key lime juice, 1 oz.
- 25 oz Basic Syrup
- Whipped Cream Graham Cracker Ice
Whipped cream vodka, key lime juice, simple syrup, whipped cream, Graham crackers, a saucer, a jigger, a cocktail shaker, a Hawthorne strainer, and a shot glass are all required.
Add ice to the top of your cocktail shaker. It should be almost entirely filled with ice.
Take hold of the jigger in your vodka with whipped cream. Pour 1 oz of whipped cream vodka over ice into your cocktail shaker after measuring it with a jigger.
Get your key lime juice and jigger. Pour 1 oz of key lime juice over the ice and vodka in the cocktail shaker after weighing it out with sugar.
Once more, grab your jigger. Likewise, get your simple syrup this time. Measure with your jigger. 25 ounces of simple syrup should be added to the shaker along with the vodka and key lime juice.
Place the Shaker lid on top of the shaker by grabbing hold of it.
You may now rim your glass. If you’re using freshly squeezed key lime juice, you can take a lime and rub it around the rim to moisten it. If not, use an ice cube to do so.
On a saucer dish, crumble the Graham crackers into a thin layer. Next, set your wet glass, rim-down in the Graham Crackers, in the bowl of ice. The glass should be rotated until the rim is completely covered.
Returning to your shaker now. Shake everything for about 15 seconds, or until the exterior feels frosty and frigid to the touch.
Put the hawthorn strainer on top of your Shaker after removing the top. Finally, pour your beverage into your shot glass from your Shaker.
Put a big dollop of whipped cream on top to finish things off.
Then, take a step back and relish your shot!
This key lime pie shot, made with whipped cream vodka, lime juice, and RumChata, tastes just like the traditional Florida delicacy from Key West. For your upcoming party, this sweet, creamy, and tangy shot is guaranteed to be a success.
