It goes without saying that cocktails should be enjoyed responsibly, and most of them can even be prepared without alcohol if that's more your speed. If you do choose to partake, make sure to support your local package store. My go-to is Cabin Fever Beverages. Did you know that when Cabin Fever opened in 2011, it was the first package store in Cullman in over 75 years? Lock that detail away for trivia night!
When entertaining this summer, pretty cocktail glassware is a must. For the cocktail featured in this recipe, I chose a set from another locally owned business, Ashley Mercantile, in downtown Cullman's Warehouse District. Check it out this summer when you're out and about!
Key Lime Pie
Refreshing and fizzy, you can’t go wrong a Key Lime Pie cocktail, a crowd favorite that is perfect for poolside and parties.
My friend Elizabeth Lee, owner of Hazel House Collective in Homewood, created this drink for me many years ago. I had to have the recipe, and thankfully, she shared it will me. It has been my go-to favorite ever since.
- 1 oz. whipped vodka
- Lime, sliced and juiced
- Ginger ale
- Add ice to glass.
- Roll and slice lime.
- Squeeze half lime over ice.
- Add vodka and ginger ale.
- Add lime slice to rim; add another to the drink.
