I discovered this wonderful drink at PF Chang's and asked the waitress for the recipe. She was super nice and let me in on their secret! I've served them at a few get-togethers and they are a big hit! It's creamy and dreamy and you can't even taste the alcy – definitely a dangerously tasty dessert martini. It tastes exactly like key lime pie, no joke!
