Lychee Martinis

A single lychee, a tropical fruit popular in Asia, sweetens a gin martini.

  • Servings: 2


Source: Martha Stewart Living, July 2003


  • 2 whole canned lychees, plus 1/2 cup drained syrup
  • 1/2 cup gin


  1. Place 1 lychee in each of two martini glasses. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in gin and reserved lychee syrup. Shake well; strain into glasses. Serve immediately.


For even more Asian-style flavor, substitute sake for the gin in this recipe.
