Lemon Meringue Pie Martini

Woohoo! It’s Friday!  Can you believe we’ve finally made it.  With the type of week it’s been for me, I am thrilled to be seeing the weekend again and you know, I could use another one of these!

Between recovering from surgery, an insane amount of papers and to-do’s on my 9-5 desk, and my son’s kindergarten shots (which gave him a reaction of a patchy rash all over), you could say my week has been a little trying.  I had everything out last night to start baking something delicious, and then the Wife and I started chatting, and then the rash came up, and we had to rush back to the Doctors, which I don’t necessarily live close to.  And the drive back in a very windy rain storm was not my cuppa tea.

So if you’ve had a week like I have, this is the recipe for you!  Or maybe if you just think it looks good!

It is delicious and absolutely summery.  If you haven’t tried Pinnacle’s Cake Vodka, I highly suggest it!  You add it to orange juice, and it tastes like an orange creamsicle.  You add it with a little bit of espresso, and you have an espresso cake!  The possibilities are endless.

I am sad to say, but as April comes to a close, this is my last lemon recipe for the month. I sure do hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have.  I can say that maybe I’m a little tired of lemons, so it’s a good thing it is about the end of the month!

If you would like to go back to see all the lemon recipes and articles I featured, here they are for you, and soon I will be making a page on the site that groups each monthly ingredient and their posts all in one place.  I will let you know once that is active and ready to go.  In the meantime, if you missed anything lemon related, here they are in all their glory:

Lemon Meringue Pie Martini

Ingredients

2 oz Pinnacle Cake Vodka

1 oz lemon juice

1/2 oz simple syrup

1 oz half and half or cream

Shake with ice and strain into a martini glass.  Top with whipped cream.

It’s that easy!

Yes, I am completely aware that this is not a martini glass.  I grabbed what was easiest.  Ok ok, the truth comes out – I don’t actually have any martini glasses, but I’m not picky the shape of my glass.  As long as the contents are deLISH!

Doesn’t that just look refreshing?!

Also, I was talking to my sister who doesn’t drink alcoholic beverages.  We were trying to come up with a virgin drink that would taste similar.  I’ve gotta give her all the credit for this one, and I haven’t tried it out myself, but what if you took a couple scoops of cake batter ice cream and a bit of lemon juice.  Blended it up and topped it with whipped cream? I’m fairly sure you’d have a lemon meringue pie milkshake!  Try it out… let me know how it turns out.

Alright my friends, it is time for me to face the day.  I hope your week has gone well and that your weekend forecast includes warmer weather than we have this weekend.  Yes, we’re back to cooler temps.

    I had a lemon drop martini recently that was so good it sent me looking for a recipe of my own. I came across yours and have since made it 3 times. It is fabulous. Fabulous! I made 2 minor two alterations – coconut milk instead of half and half, and whipped coconut milk instead of traditional whipped cream, making mine dairy free. Thank you for sharing this recipe, it’s all kinds of awesome!
