Tuesdays with Dorie: Florida Pie... tini

OK, so I have been pretty busy in the past week and decided it was time to take a baking break. However, I still wanted to participate in TWD in some way. This week's recipe was Florida Pie, chosen by Dianne of Dianne's Dishes. So, I did a quick google search and came up with this chowhound post, which gave me the base recipe for what I am dubbing... Florida Pie-tinis!

I didn't have any Licor 43, nor was I about to spend money on yet another bottle that would collect dust on our bar. Plus, I wanted to incorporate a Dorie fave, coconut, into the mix. So here is my final recipe...

--recipe--
Equal parts of:
-Vanilla flavored vodka
-Malibu or other coconut flavored rum
-Heavy cream
-Lime juice (Key or regular)

Put all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake to combine. Rim martini glass with crushed graham crackers and pour the drink into the glass. Garnish with lime zest.
--end of recipe--

I swear, this is probably just as fattening as the pie! Very good, but I definitely wasn't able to finish the whole thing... too full!

You can find the actual pie recipe, along with photos and experiences, on Dianne's blog and many other TWD blogs. Enjoy!
