For me, using Smirnoff Whipped Vodka is really the way to go. It gives it that creamy texture I think this drink is missing.

For the graham cracker crust, try dipping the martini glass edge in lime juice and then into a container of finely powdered graham crackers. It is like adding the salt to a margarita - the finishing touch!!

Oh my,yes! The graham cracker crumbs on the rim of the glass is a stroke of genius! I served these as dessert at a cookout party with lime ribs, and am now extremely popular with all my friends and DH. Made a giant pitcher of them, and had to make another one for seconds. Definitely something fun and unusual.

Great summer drink! I made twice the amount and it was enough for 6 people to have one drink.

Pretty good- but for a few easier changes, just use vanilla vodka, it is a lot smoother than regular vodka with the added vanilla extract. I also added a tablespoon of half n half for an ultimate smooth key lime taste!

wet the rim of the glass and coat with crushed graham cracker crumbs

I made this drink this weekend for a family bbq..they were great! I added 1/2 cup of half and half and 1/2 cup of water to cut the sour of the limeade mix a little..I topped them off with whipped cream!! I will definately make these again.
