Lemon Meringue Pie

Day 277

Lemon Meringue Pie
4.5 shots out of 5

What a long but fun weekend.  Today was a day of cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning.  Happy to say, this house is clean.  We're closing in on Thanksgiving (which I think I'm still in denial about).  Four more days and then the countdown until Christmas starts in this house.  Just thinking of it all makes me want a cocktail.........good thing I'm The Cocktail Lady!

I gave tonight's cocktail 4.5 shots out of 5.   WOW, this is an amazing cocktail.  Be prepared for a lemony flavor (as it should be, hence the name).  I absolutely enjoyed this cocktail, and it's even husband approved!  He said that he would totally order that cocktail at a there you go, four thumbs waaaay up!  If the lemon flavor is a bit much for you, I would cup it back to your liking, but that (in my opinion) would be the only complaint someone could have about this cocktail.  I found this cocktail on the Pinnacle site.

Here is the recipe for a Lemon Meringue Pie:

  • 2 oz cake vodka
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 1/4 oz cream
  • whipped cream
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above except the whipped cream.  Shake everything up real well and strain it into a martini glass.  Put your whipped cream on top and enjoy!!

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to a clean house and an amazing cocktail to enjoy it with!
