Key limes, indigenous to the Florida Keys, are notably smaller, seedier, juicer, and have a stronger aroma than standard limes. The zesty flavor of Key lime shines in Florida’s famous Key Lime Pie, but we like it in this crisp cocktail just as much.
5 tablespoons gin
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh Key lime juice
1 tablespoon simple syrup
Garnish: Key lime slice
How to Make It
Combine the first 3 ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker, and shake vigorously. Strain into a coupe glass. Garnish, if desired.
