"Chamomile Key Lime Pie Martini | Crafted Pour"

"Key Lime Pie is one of those things that instantly makes a day better. It is physically impossible to be upset once you’ve been served a slice of this. In an attempt to find new things to use the random bottles on the bar, I found the original recipe for this cocktail from Sonja and Alex Overhiser @acouplecooks . I tried their original recipe and loved it, but I wanted to keep tinkering to see if I could incorporate anything new to the equation. What I settled on was a chamomile tea infused vanilla vodka, a lime infused heavy cream ( peel the limes and add skins to the cream, store in the fridge covered for 4 hours then remove the lime skins), and some left over chamomile infused simple syrup. Key limes have a less tart bite to their juice, since I was using regular limes, the addition of the simple syrup would help balance out the recipe. Plus the chamomile helped to add a subtle floral perfume that paired well with the vanilla and citrus notes from the Licor 43. I couldn’t be happier with how this reshake turned out. Big shoutout to @acouplecooks for the original recipe I worked from. While you’re sipping on one of these, go check out their page for a tone of great recipes and photos.
