Lychee Martini

I love Halloween and along with all the decorations, appetizers and treats I came up with, I wanted to make a fun spooky cocktail.

It may be Fall but I concocted a refreshing Summer-perfect bevvie that was just as good as our signature Halloween cocktail - I named it Human Eye-ball Juice to be themed for our Halloween gathering. I got lots of raves but fair warning... it sneaks up on you! Here is the recipe - sans photo.

Lychee Nut Martini Cocktail (aka Human Eye-ball Juice)

One can of Lychee Nuts, including the liquid (available at Asian Markets)
2 cups simple syrup (recipe follows)
1-2 cups of vodka

Ice - if desired

In a pitcher mix the simple syrup with the vodka (at this point, I have to recommend Rain vodka - its little known and very smooth). I use more simple syrup and more vodka because I like to add ice and it dilutes it all. Pour in the entire can. Voila  - that's it.

Scoop out a lychee fruit to garnish each glass and add a sprig of mint if you like.

Simple Syrup
Bring equal parts sugar and water to boil until sugar dissolves. Once it cools, you can use it in your cocktail.
