Make This Key Lime Pie Shot for a Taste of Florida Sunshine

The Essentials

whipped cream vodka
key lime juice

Key lime pie may be the best thing Florida has ever given the country. It’s sweet but tart, creamy yet light—a symphony of balanced tropical flavors.

Made with key lime juice (it’s sweeter and more aromatic than your standard lime juice) and RumChata, this liquid take on the pie also includes whipped cream-flavored vodka to replicate the traditional topping. This dessert shot works perfectly as a post-meal pick-me-up or a signature summer drink. Garnish it with a graham cracker crust rim that will make you feel like you're basking in the Key West sun.
