The delicate, floral sweetness of the lychee is an excellent base for an unusual and very refreshing cocktail.
Serves: Makes 1 drink
- 5 canned lychees, plus 1 tablespoon juice from the can
- 2oz (60ml) vodka
- 1oz (30ml) Grand Marnier
- Juice of 1/2 lime (about a tablespoon)
- 4 mint leaves
- Combine four of the lychees with the lychee juice, vodka, Grand Marnier, lime juice, mint leaves, and ice cubes in a cocktail shaker, and shake until the mixture is thoroughly combined and well chiled (20-30 seconds). Strain into a martini glass, garnish with the remaining lychee, and serve.
