Lychee Martini

Lychee Martinis - Sweet, tropical and very very drinkable!!!!

With the sweet taste of grape, strawberry and melon, lychees are so unique and so wonderful. So how better to enjoy them than mixed with more lychee and a bit of vodka to create the seriously drinkable Lychee Martini.

Lychee Martinis are perfect for a girls night in. Sweet enough, but with a hint of lemon, you can sit at kitchen bar and imagine you are in a posh hotel in your LBD, but with the advantage of hanging with your girlfriends in yoga pants and thick socks….Don’t judge me it is cold here!! 😉

Lychee Martinis - Sweet, tropical and very very drinkable!!!!

We have been drinking a lot of martinis recently!

Mostly because as few weeks ago I went out for a delicious lunch with my girl friends. Seriously it was the best!!! I had a prawn gnocchi dish that was amazing. I didn’t share a single bite! I want to try and recreate it, so if I can get it perfect it might end up on the blog…..Either way I’ll have run trying 😉

So after being a food scrounge, I graciously opted in to the dessert sharing. 5 desserts…5 girlfriends…..best of everything!!!!

But to finish up the meal, we hit the martini list! I came home, via the bottle shop and stocked up on a few ingredients, I had plans for espresso martinis and turkish delight martinis. But! Lychee liqueur was on special, so it made it to my trolley! And then whilst at Bunbury Farmers Market I got a great deal on lychees!! It was serendipitous!!! Lychee martinis had to be first on the list!

I love love love lychee martinis!!!!!! Sweet, tropical and very very drinkable!!!! I stress this one – VERY drinkable! Please drink with care. I promise you that after a triple batch of these the world seems brighter and funnier but the morning feels earlier, harder and very very headachy!!! 😳

I have given quantities for what most people would class as enough for 4 people, but I have extra large martini glasses!!!!!

Cheers xx

    Hi Claire! I have not had lychees in forever! I’m so glad you used vodka and not gin…I am not a fan of gin. Gary is a martini purist, it must be gin with a hint of vermouth. Not me, I go for a vodka martini every time! I love that everyone ordered a different dessert for sharing! That’s what we do with the entire meal when we are out with friends or family!

      I love a gin and tonic with a splash of grapefruit 🙂
      But when it comes to martinis I am definitely in the vodka camp. (Maybe it is the childhood memories of watching Bond films on a Sunday afternoon!)

      I love meals like that. I think that is why tapas and the sharing platters are where my eye starts when I look at a menu. So much better to have a little bit of lots of things 🙂
