A couple days ago I went to the market to get some ingredients for the next blog when I ran into these bad boys.
As you can imagine, I couldn't possibly resist to pass on such a great opportunity to share with you all this lycheelicious cocktail of the month recipe: Lychee Martinis.
Perfectly sweet and refreshing, with the right spark and exoticism to fast forward you and your party to a wonderful summer vacation in a tropical beach. So, get back into those bikinis and trunks, and prepare yourself for this delicious experience.
For 2 servings you'll need:
- 1 can of lychee fruit (or a few fresh ripe lychees and lychee syrup)
- 2 oz. crushed ice
- 3 oz. lychee liqueur
- 2 oz. vodka
- Lime juice
All you have to do is mix the ice, the lychee liqueur, the vodka, a splash of lime juice and 2 tbs of lychee juice (from the can or syrup) in a shaker. Shake it! Shake it! like there's no tomorrow, then pour the mix into cooled martini glasses and decorate with a couple peeled and pitted lychees. To top it off add a splash of Champagne and you're all ready to go!
