Drink Highlight: The Lychee Martini


One of our favorite cocktails is the ever-fascinating Lychee Martini! A refreshingly sweet mix of vodka, lychee sake, lychee juice, and then garnished with a lychee itself, this is one to be curious about. What is a lychee, you wonder? Well, it is a berry native to southern China, Tawain and Southeast Asia, where it is known to be the “King of Berries.” It is very fragrant and almost perfume-like with a rough, light-red rind that is inedible but can be easily removed to reveal a white or pale pink, translucent pulp that is very sweet in flavor. It is also good for you, as it is high in Potassium and the antioxidant Vitamin C!

Although we have the Lychee Martini available to you year-round, the sweet, floral aura of the lychee makes it the perfect springtime drink to get accustomed to!
