If you want to hang on to summer, or especially summer flavors a little longer, might I recommend you shake yourself a key lime martini.
It’s refreshing, perfectly sweet and decadent enough that it makes a great treat for a Friday or Saturday night (or Monday, I won’t judge you).
As the name suggests, key limes are preferred here, but you can honestly use any variety of fresh limes. This key lime martini will be delicious regardless.
Just four simple ingredients, shake well with ice, and you’re in business. Feel free to shake two servings at once if you have a friend of significant other who is mourning the end of summer with you. 🙂
Admittedly, I am a major citrus freak, but I honesty think this key lime martini is a cocktail that anyone can enjoy. Happy cocktail shaking! xo. Emma
