LEMON MERINGUE PIE MARTINI


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.
