Thinking of Drinking: Blue Lychee Martini

Have you ever heard of the Lychee fruit? I hadn't either until we filmed our Asian-Fusion episode at Ping by Charlie Chiang’s in 2008.  I enjoyed lots of lychee in Taiwan.  The fruit tastes similar to a grape and is perfect for an Asian style cocktail. It is actually a tropical fruit tree native to Southern China.

2 parts Lychee Juice
1 part Blueberry Vodka
1 part Blue Curacao
1/2 part Grenadine
Lychee Fruit

Take a little Lychee Juice and mix that with some blueberry vodka, blue Curacao and grenadine.   Make sure to garnish with 1 or 2 peeled and seeded lychees on a skewer and a mint sprig. Smooth and Refreshing!
