Summertime sippin'

– a small town, midwestern girl living in sunny South Florida with my husband and our two golden doodles.

Welcome to my lifestyle blog dedicated to good food, better drinks, easy entertaining ideas and laid-back living. 

Sharing a cocktail, hosting a party with good friends, trying new recipes, making memories over a thoughtfully laid out grazing board; these are the moments I love to live and share with others.

Thanks for being here!

Hey, I'm Kirsten

This simple lychee martini recipe is so good, I almost feel like I should start this post with a warning. Warning: Goes down way too easy. Ha!

What is Lychee?

Lychee is an exotic fruit that I had only ever tried in Hawaii. We had them in margaritas, fresh picked while zip-lining and even in a dessert! But just recently, I managed to get my hands on 4 lbs of them, which explains the urge to make this delicious lychee martini.

I bet you’re wondering how in the world that happened… Well, I won a giveaway! That’s right, one of those Instagram giveaways where you wonder if anyone ever actually wins– I won. The giveaway was from Fruit Stand, if you want to try and win one of their exotic fruit giveaways yourself.

The best part? The lychees that turned up at my door were actually grown in Florida. Score! They will now be on my seasonal shopping list ever summer.

If you’ve never had a lychee, they’re very sweet and juicy, and they’re especially good in a cocktail. I made lychee sangria one night for some friends who were coming over, and we ended the night with these lychee martinis because we just couldn’t get enough!

Lychee Martini Recipe

These simple lychee martinis are just 3 ingredients. All you need is your favorite vodka, St. Germain and Lychee Juice. I like to finish mine off with a fresh lychee fruit, but if you can’t find it, it’s not a big deal. However, it makes for a delicious treat once you’ve finished your martini; it soaks up some of your martini and makes the already delicious fruit even better!

Lychee Juice isn’t too hard to find. I’ve found it at Publix and Total Wine before. It’s okay if it’s a Lychee Juice blend or spelled like “litchi,” it all works here!

To make the martini’s, simply pour over ice into a cocktail shaker 1.5oz vodka, 1.5oz St. Germain and 1oz Lychee Juice. Shake it up and pour into a martini glass. These are my absolute favorite martini glasses.

    I can’t find lychee juice anywhere. I was able to find lychee nectar which has only 25% juice and the rest is sugar and water. Any hints as to where I might get the juice? I live in Minneapolis MN. THANKS

      Hey Jayne! Sorry you are having a hard time finding Lychee juice. Have you tried whole foods? I believe they carry the brand that it in the photo in this post. It is a juice blend but there is no added to sugar to it.
