Put a twist on the classic with this raspberry key lime pie topped with tequila-raspberry sauce. Canned cream of coconut provides the sweetness to this tangy raspberry key lime pie. It is a thick sweetened blend of coconut paste, sugar, and water - not to be replaced with coconut milk - and can be found in supermarket liquor departments.
