Last night we celebrated my birthday with a little cocktail party (which was much lovelier than my actual birthday last week). We had some friends and family over, and partied it up. My husband, who is a rock star in the bar tending department, kept the drinks flowing till the late night hours.
The Larissatini was the specialty and favorite of the evening, so I thought I’d share it with you all. Because let’s face it, everyone likes a good martini. The recipe calls for lychee, which is an Asian fruit that can be found in the ethnic foods aisle of most grocery stores.
Enjoy one (or three, like I did), and let me know what you think!
2 shots light rum
1/2 shot vermouth
1 shot lychee syrup
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well, strain into a martini glass, and garnish with a lychee.
