August 15th Is
NATIONAL LEMON MERINGUE PIE DAY

Toast the occasion with The Lemon Meringue Pie Martini
from The Martini Diva


Two of the best things about lemons are Lemon Meringue Pie and lemonade.  With the Lemon Meringue Pie Martini you get both in a cocktail, it's a total lemon win/win!


Here's the recipe for my
LEMON MERINGUE PIE MARTINI

The use of egg white in this martini gives it the fun frothiness of the meringue and you can use pasteurized egg whites or even egg white powder in place of fresh egg white if you choose.  For a little extra pie goodness try riming the glass with baked pie crust mixed with some sugar.

Just a few other things good about lemons:
  • Lemons have been cultivated in the Mediterranean from as early as the first century A.D.
  • To this day, the British Navy requires ships to carry enough lemons so that every sailor can have one ounce of juice a day to aid in the prevention of scurvy
  • During the Renaissance lemon juice was used by the fashionistas of the day to redden their lips
  • Lemons are fat free, high in fiber, loaded with Vitamin C, Vitamin A, loaded with healthy minerals and contain tons of beneficial antioxidants
So, when life hands you lemons, make a Lemon Meringue Pie Martini!

Happy National Lemon Meringue Pie Day
