This beverage has been haunting me ever since I created it. Let me just say that not a warm afternoon goes by that I don’t think about making one of these Killer Key Lime Pie Cocktails. I actually had to throw out the pineapple coconut juice so I wouldn’t be tempted – it’s that good. Light, crisp, tart and sweet… this recipe will delight your tastebuds and easily put a smile on your face. Not only is it crave-worthy – it’s simple. When deciding on the perfect cocktail to serve at your wedding event, keep simplicity in mind. Unless you have a gourmet bartender, you’ll want to keep your signature drink easy to replicate so that each guest gets the beverage you intended them to enjoy!

Key Lime Pie - Signature Wedding Cocktail

How To Pick The Perfect Signature Drink:

When deciding on a signature drink to serve at your special event there are 4 things to consider; 1. The theme 2. The location 3. Your personal favorite drink, and 4. The color scheme of your event. One of those 4 topics should give you a starting point of inspiration as to what beverage would fit your unique gathering the best. For example, if you are hosting a rustic barn event a cocktail with whiskey as the mixer might be appropriate. If you are having a destination wedding on the beach a tropical island drink would be a great fit. Or let’s say you only ever drink vodka + soda, then vodka + soda it should be. If your event is a romantic in theme with shades of whites, beiges and pinks, you might consider looking for a cocktail that is pink to match. So start with cues from your event design itself, blend with your own personal taste and strain a few of our unique recipes into the mix and see what shakes out!

Garnish Your Glass:

Serving this drink with a little square of graham cracker is an absolute must. Seriously, dipping the graham into this concoction is the best thing I have ever tasted in my life. I think I drank (or ate) my entire drink by soaking it up with graham crackers. I really wanted to crumble the whole package in my drink and eat it like ice cream. Hey Ben & Jerry’s – I’ve got a new flavor idea for you!
