Lychee Martini Above View

Another busy weekend with a round of disc golf (27-holes) at Joseph Davis State Park and we went to see the movie Elysium. I will not say too much about it since it just opened. It was a good movie but not good enough to see again at the theatre. It is more action than sci-fi and the plot was not well-developed. Did anyone else see it yet? What did you think? I preferred Pacific Rim. Saturday morning started off with us witnessing a bunny eating our flowers! Previously I shared pictures of our gardens and I mentioned we have a lot of damage from rabbits and deers. Initially I wanted a flowering garden with different annuals and perenials. I had several bunches of beautiful black eyed susans – to have them eaten down to the ground by the rabbits. The deer eat our patriot hostas and other bushes. We try spraying and using other methods to keep them away. It helps but it is a lot of work to keep up with it. So we switched over to statues, flowers, and bushes they typically will not eat. I am sharing a few pictures of this cute little bunny eating our flowers. We are having a rough year with our annuals – from too much rain, too hot, then too cold. So I figured the little guy can just eat them – they don’t look that great anyways.

Here is another version of a Lychee Martini. As I mentioned in a previous post, I am trying to use a core group of ingredients to make different cocktails. This version is not as sweet as the Lychee Berry Martini. It has a hint of the lychee flavor but the vodka and sparkling lemon water balances out the sweetness nicely. If you want it a bit more sweetener add more lychee juice or reduce / eliminate the sparkling lemon water. I also like the clean, clear look of this martini.

I have shared 4 recipes for martinis and I am going to rank them based upon sweetness starting with the most sweetest.

2 oz Vodka
1 oz Lychee Juice
1 oz Sparkling Lemon Water

Fill a martini shaker half way with ice. Add ingredients and shake until chilled. I like to drop a lychee in the glass before pouring the martini.

    well I certainly fancy the lychee Martini and as for that naughty Bunny isn’t he a cute culprit!

      Yes the bunny was too cute to chase away. And the potted plants are not doing that well so he can feast!

    I love lychee martinis! I had a few last winter. They aren’t so sweet that I knock them back, but they aren’t as intense as a dirty.

      Finally someone who has had a lychee martini! I could not find any lychee juice or lychee liqueur. So I had to use the canned juice. But it was still good. I never had a dirty martini and I do not think I would like them from the ingredients.
