One of my favorite pies is Lemon Meringue. I love the tart, sweet lemon curd filling and the fluffy, lightly browned meringue topping. (Please don't put whipped cream on mine!)
Naturally I turned it into a cocktail. I simply took vanilla vodka, homemade Limoncello, lemon juice, simple syrup, added some pasteurized egg whiles and, boom, Lemon Meringue Pie in a glass! The egg whites give it that froth, as well as add body to the cocktail, and counter the tartness of the lemon. All in all a deliciously light martini.
If you really want the whole pie experience, add baked, crushed pie crust mixed with a little sugar to the rim.
2 Oz. Vanilla Vodka
1 Oz. Lemoncello
1 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Tbsp. Simple Syrup
1 Iz. Pasteurized Egg White
1/2 C. Ice
Garnish: Grated Lemon Zest
Glass: Cocktail (Martini) or Coupe
And the ingredients to a blender and blend until chilled and frothy.
Grate some lemon zest over the top of the cocktail and serve.
