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!! 😉
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!!!!!
