Lychee Martini Recipe

Lychee Martini Recipe

A few years ago, I was at a fancy bar in Newport Beach and I saw a Lychee Martini on the drink menu and ordered it immediately. It was fantastic! Since then, I always order one if there is one available. With my Mom visiting, I thought she would enjoy trying one so I attempted to make one at home and came up with a SUPER simple Lychee Martini Recipe.

I have grown up eating lychee fruit ever since I can remember.  If you are unfamiliar with it, it’s an exotic tropical fruit cultivated in Asia, Australia, and Africa. They are about the size of a large walnut and have a red spiky exterior.  When you peel the fruit, the inside is a white fleshy pulp and it’s sweet and delicious!  You only need four ingredients to make the martini.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 oz. Vodka
  • Splash Simple Syrup
  • 1.5 c. Lychee juice
  • Lychee fruit

Materials:

  • Martini Shaker
  • Ice
  • Martini Glass
  • Toothpick

Instructions:

Place the Vodka, Simple Syrup and Lychee juice in a martini shaker filled with ice. Shake it vigorously and pour into a martini glass. Garnish it with the Lychee fruit.

You can buy the fruit and juice at an ethnic or natural foods store. Many Asian markets sell them fresh. If you cannot find the fruit, you can also buy it in a can.  This martini is perfect for the warm weather season and a fun and interesting drink to serve at parties. They are a great source of Vitamin C as well! That’s my kind of martini!
