Margarita Pie!! A crunchy graham cracker crust is filled with tequila-spiked lime custard! Key Lime Pie meets your favorite classic margarita.
I’ve mentioned before that I’m not that big on mixed drinks, I’m definitely more of a wine drinker. When I do have a cocktail, it’s almost always a classic Margarita. I love the flavor of tequila and prefer a simple Margarita made with good tequila, fresh lime juice and a little orange liqueur.
Any time we have a family party, surprise surprise, I bring dessert. Most of the time I just bring whatever I’m in the mood to make. For my nephew’s graduation party my sister asked me to make a Key Lime Pie since that’s one of his favorites. I love anything lime so was happy to make the pie, and figured I’d do something interesting with the recipe so I could post it on the blog.
I immediately thought that the only thing better than a creamy key lime pie, would be a key lime pie flavored like a classic Margarita. The trick was to add enough of the liqueur so the pie tasted like the drink, but not so much that it no longer tasted like a key lime pie.
So, here it is, my Margarita Pie! The flavors were exactly as I wanted on the very first try. If you don’t do alcohol simply eliminate the liqueur for a more classic version of Key Lime Pie.
