Making up a cocktail recipe is easy; coming up with a name for it – not so! After a couple of these drinks, the best I could come up with was LycheeTangita, if you can think of a better name, let me know.
(Makes about 4 drinks)
- Canned Lychee drink – 1.5 cups
- Tangerine juice - 1/2 cup
- Lime juice – 2 tbsp
- Sliver Tequila – 3/4 cup
- Mint leaves – ~12
- Sugar – 1 tbsp
- Crushed Ice
Place the torn mint leaves and sugar in a cocktail shaker. Crush with a muddler, or the back of a wooden spoon to release the mint flavor.
Add the rest of the ingredients and shake well to combine. Strain into martini glasses.
Garnish with mint leaves or lychees.
An incredibly refreshing drink for a hot summer night.
This is my last Lychee entry for A Fruit A Month – Lychee event that I’m hosting this month.
Round up will be published by Thursday - August 30th.
Today is the deadline, but in case you just got lazy, I will accept entries till Tuesday the 28th.
I’m also taking this to Meeta’s Monthly Mingle – Liquid Dreams, a theme close to my heart, how can I resist!
