Lychee Martini

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!

Lychee Martini
(serves one)

25ml vodka
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.

  1. Hi Katie,

    Love your blog. I recently visited pet lamb patisserie (maybe it was you that served me?!) and got some of your cupcakes. The banoffie one was to die for!

  2. My best friend and I actually invented these as well on New Years Eve a few years ago, then we decided to adapt it a bit - switch out the Vodka and sugar syrup for champagne and it makes what our friends now know as our signature champagne cocktail!

  3. Oh my word that drink sounds absolutely heavenly! I'm going to have to give it a try one of these days! Hope you had a very lovely New Year!

  4. This is awesome! I love lychees and I've only had them in a martini once. I should definitely make this at home.
