Thyme, a coconut crust is my favorite way to eat key lime pie. I know it's adulterated but tastes so dang good. I like to put a little tequila in it too sometimes for a margarita pie. Yours sounds divine!

Forgot to add that I also really enjoy a simple sorbet like mango or strawberry swimming in champagne. As kids my mom used to give that to us so I guess there's some nostalgia associated

Mango-Lime sorbet. I make it often when it's sweltering outside and it always pleases.
