Relax and wind down with this delicious Lychee Martini! Here's how to make it right at home
3 fresh lychees, peeled with seed removed ＋ 1 for garnish
1/2 fresh pear, cut into cubes, seeds removed
1/2 fresh lime, cut into quarters
8 fresh mint leaves
1 teaspoon roughly chopped fresh ginger
1-1/2 ounces premium vodka
3 ice cubes
Place the lychees, pear, lime, mint and ginger in a sturdy pint glass and press all ingredients together with a muddler. Continue to mash everything until the fruits are broken down and a thick slush has formed.
Place vodka and ice cubes in the glass and put larger metal container over the top or place all ingredients in a martini shaker and shake vigorously for at least 30 seconds. Sample and adjust seasonings if necessary, then strain while pouring over a chilled martini glass.
Garnish with lychee and enjoy.
