Margarita Key Lime Pie

Key lime tequila custard served in a pretzel crust. Tart, sweet, salty, refreshing. Just like a margarita.
This is the greatest key lime pie ever. For real. Yes, I have had multiple kinds of key lime pie in the Key West. I love the Blonde Giraffe the best, but this is better. Why? It’s salty, it’s sour, it’s sweet.. and it has tequila.
This recipe is based on the recipe on the key lime juice bottle. It makes the best key lime pie. This is a fancied up version. Or a dressed down version. You can be the judge of that.
I swapped the traditional graham cracker crust of a pretzel one to give the element of a salty rim. I added an egg yolk to give the filling more body. And I gave a hefty swig of tequila and Grand Marnier to make me miss warm sunshiney days a little less.
