  • 2 oz. vodka I used snow leopard
  • 1 oz. key lime juice freshly squeezed
  • ¾ oz. Cream of Coconut I used Coco Real
  • ¼ oz. simple syrup
  • 1 key lime slice optional


  • Combine the vodka, key lime juice, cream of coconut and simple syrup in a shaker tin. 
  • Add ice and shake for 45 seconds. Double strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a lime slice if desired. 


  1. Vodka - a nice, smooth vodka works beautifully in this cocktail! As a huge fan of Snow Leopard vodka, I highly recommend it! If you don't have Snow Leopard, any good quality vodka works. 
  2. Key lime juice: Fresh juice is key in this cocktail! You can juice the limes several hours before making the cocktail.
  3. Cream of Coconut: Not to be confused with the "cream" at the top of canned coconut milk, this is a sweetened version that designed for drinks and desserts. The most common brand is Coco Lopez. I used Coco Real (which is shelf stable, woo hoo!)
