Lychee Martinis

By Wednesday, October 23, 2013

This was the first alcoholic drink I ever had.

Lychee Martini

At least I think it was. It also might have been a cosmopolitan. Can’t quite remember.

Anyway, I think we can safely say my first lychee martini was quite a while ago. Like, pre-legal drinking age. Unless you’re my Mama, in which case Daddy would NEVER have  bought me any drinks underage.

Nowadays I don’t drink many martinis – I’m a wine girl through and through. But every now and then I get a craving.

I must say, though, that I find lychee martinis a bit… girly. Am I right? Let me know if there are any male lychee martini-lovers out there…

  1. Pour all ingredients in a shaker over ice. Shake and strain into chilled martini glasses. Garnish with a canned lychee and serve.
