I've always been a little bit obsessed with lychees. Fresh, canned, juiced, I love them all. I recently went for a meal with the in-laws to a lovely little Asian restaurant in Newcastle called Fat Buddha. It was here my lovely sister in law (to be, if I ever stop spending the wedding fund) introduced me to the deliciousness that is a lychee martini. Since our visit to said restaurant I haven't been able to get that delicious cocktail out of my head so I decided to collect some ingredients and toast in the New Year with a gorgeous fruity lychee martini.
What are you doing for New Years Eve? Whatever it is you chose to do, be safe and have a fabulous time! Here's to 2013!
25ml lychee liqueur
dash sugar syrup
75ml lychee juice
combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with a handful of ice. Shake it up, good and proper, and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a canned or fresh lychee if you wish and enjoy.
