Exotic, alluring, and intriguing…
It’s made with vodka and lychee juice or syrup.
This sensual elixir is perfumey,
with a taste reminiscent of rose petals and citrus.
Some recipes call for additional ingredients such as lime juice, sugar, lychee liqueur, or Cointreau but purists simply go for good vodka and lychee.
Have you tried a Lychee Martini?

Although a girly drink, I do enjoy them and now the secret’s out! I love lychees and well as for booze…
Ooooh yes! I have a friend who introduced me to these about 4 years ago when our bookclub met to discuss Balzac & the Little Chinese Seamstress…. Needless to say, we have this cocktail every time there is a GNO which really isn’t often enough.
I never tried a Lychee martini Lori Lynn, but I’d be very willing to be sipping one right now!
No Way Peter! It is not. Well, on second thought, it is not the same as, uh, a shot and a beer? A real man can love lychees. haha
Amy – I hope you have more GNO’s!
Marie – oh you have to try it. Ask Amy. I know you’ll love it!
No, I haven’t tried one. But you sure make it sound appealing.
Hi Susan – it has a complex flavor, do try!
I love lychee nuts~ but I really doubt I’ll be able to find those at the Piggley Wiggley.
This looks yummy!
Hi Sandi – probably not at the Piggley Wiggley, but maybe at your favorite Martini Bar? I hope you get to try one.
I love this one, so picture perfect. Love lychess and martini’s now have to try this combination. BTW, I am hosting a ONE DISH MEAL EVENT, I would love for you to participate. The details are in my site. Looking forward to an entry from you.
