This is a great martini. For those who don't know what a lychee is it's an asian fruit. To me it tastes like grapefruit and pears with the texture of a canned pear. The peach schnapps goes great with the lychee. I didn't have the white cranberry juice so I just used all lychee juice. Read More

As I read this I am imbibing a lychee martini (well actually I only had the can of lychees and some cheap vodka..lol) but technically you're supposed to use fresh or frozen lychees not canned. Still love these things! Read More

I used 3 oz of vodka & omitted the peach schnapps. I also shook it w/ crushed ice instead of cubes because it'll make the drink a bit thicker & frostier using crushed ice. Took a sip & then added a tsp or so of simple syrup (equal amounts sugar & water boiled for a couple of minutes to dissolve the sugar...allow to cool). That not only sweetened up the drink but brought out the flavor of the lychees. Thsi went great w/ Bobby Flay's Chinese Chicken Salad...thanks for the recipe! Read More

These are quite good. I didn't have peach schnapps so ended up adding a bit more lychee juice. This helped keep it from being too strong as the Vodka I had on hand has quite a distinct flavor on its own. I also didn't have white cranberry juice but used the regular red kind. It ended up a nice light pink color. I think I might try this with gin by adding a bit of lychee juice to a gin and tonic and adding a lychee for garnish. Read More

I had a lychee martini at a Thai restaurant in Chicago and fell in love! This recipe tastes exactly like theirs if you omit the peach schnapps. Read More
