lychee martini

June 11th, 2010

Woooohoooo! It’s that time again. Time to sit back and relax and enjoy ourselves a tasty little beverage. I am so ready for the weekend, in particular I can’t wait to cross a few things off my 30/30 list. I’m thinking a trip to the doughnut plant might be in my future, but we’ll see.

In the meantime this little number, the lychee martini, is the perfect way to start the weekend. Strong and slightly sweet, they’re easier than easy to make and whew, they pack a punch.

Cheers! Have a great weekend!

lychee martini

2 oz lychee juice (from a can of lychees)
1 lychee to garnish
1. Combine vodka, lychee juice and a few ice cubes in a cocktail shaker and shake for 10 seconds.

3. Take a sip and instantly relax.

    Just got back from China where lychee martinis were everywhere! I’ve been thinking about them for a few days now since returning to the states, and, voila: a great post from Kelly with a recipe! Thanks, and happy Sunday!

    I bet that that martini is just about the most perfect thing. I need to go get some lychees now.

    how easy can this get: Kai vodka makes a lychee flavored vodka. yum-my! just shake and add fruit, even easier. lol. it’s a Hawaii company, so not sure if you can get it in NYC.

    Reminds me of visiting a friend in Hawaii last year. Her mother made lychee martinis for us, and they were quite tasty. The photo, by the way, is beautiful–the dotted background is perfect!

    Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are
    you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with
    hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.

    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
