Key lime happiness in a glass

I know I don't write too many personal things on my blog but just so you all know I am a basket case. I figure that the first step is to at least admit it. My husband looks at me like I am crazy all the time and he chalks it up to my "artistic" side--whatever. I am easily cry, I cry at movies, cards and those damn St. Jude's name it I can tear up over it.

So you can imagine what happens to me when something really crappy happens...I am a hot mess. My husband is the total opposite so when the water works happen he totally looks like a deer in headlights, not knowing what to do or which way to run. Well Darwanism kicked in and Mike (my husband) has developed a coping mechanism—medicinal mixology. Now, every time I get upset my husband whips out an amazing drink! I know this was a long story just to get a recipe for a tasty cocktail but when you have the cocktail it is well worth it.

Needless to say I was upset last night so Mike came up with his version of a key lime martini. He has tried this one on previous occasions using other, sub-standard recipes that were not very good because most curdled when you put the cream with the lime juice--but not this one. Try it out, believe me it will heal—or at least numb—what ails you.

43 Liquor
Whip Cream vodka
Key West lime juice
Crushed up graham crackers
Lime (optional garnish)

Mix three parts 43 liquor, three parts Whip Cream Vodka, one part half-and-half and one part Key West lime juice in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously. Rim glass with crushed graham crackers, pour in cocktail and garnish with a lime.
