I have to start by apologizing for my recent blog activity things have been so hectic these days that I just haven't been able to catch my breath let alone sit down to write something remotely interesting. Anyway, I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel and today's post is in honor of the upcoming Chinese New Year's...Woo Hoo! I lived in San Francisco for years and Chinese New Year's is one of the biggest celebrations of the year so let's kick-off the festivities with a Red Lotus...Yummy!
In the Red Lotus cocktail the distinct flavor of lychee liqueur is accented with the lighter taste of cranberry. It's an interesting play of flavors that is both intensely sweet and delicately refreshing. I like to garnish a Red Lotus with three pitted lychees skewered on a cocktail pick.
•1 1/2 oz vodka
•1 1/2 oz Lichido Liqueur
•1 oz cranberry juice
1.Pour the vodka, Lichido and cranberry juice into a cocktail shaker with ice.
3.Strain into a chilled martini glass.
