This Lemon Meringue Pie Cocktail is dessert in cocktail form. Made with tart lemon curd, vodka, limoncello, and cream soda.
When I made my Lemon Meringue Pie Sweet Rolls I had some leftover Swiss meringue and lemon curd.
I didn’t want it to go to waste and Tipsy Tuesday was coming up.
And since I always have vodka around it seemed like I could whip up a cocktail out of it.
Which is what I did.
A Lemon Meringue Pie Cocktail.
I definitely recommend making the rolls at the same time you make the cocktail.
That way you can use the leftovers the same way I did.
But if you don’t that is fine but you will most likely have leftover Swiss meringue. Do you have to have the meringue?
But it really makes this cocktail extra special.
If you are using the meringue make sure that you use a glass.
I point that out because I first grabbed one of my plastic glasses.
Luckily before I put the blowtorch to it I was like oh yeah, this will melt the plastic cup. 😀
If you don’t have yourself a culinary torch yet, you need one.
Not only for this cocktail but because it’s just fun to set stuff on fire.
Just remember to keep moving the glass around so that the heat source doesn’t stay in one spot too long.
So grab some glasses and make this beyond happy cocktail.
I mean how can you not be happy with this in your hand?
It’s just so sunny and cheery.
And last but not least it’s a great day to buy my cookbook.
