Oh hello there, Lychee Martini. You are delicious and mysterious, and a little bit funky.
When DC Striving introduced me to you, I was initially hesitant. You looked like a slimy slug (yeah, I said it) floating in my cold, cold glass. But you tasted like sugary perfection. So much so that last night, at a delicious and much needed sushi dinner with TF at Thai Chef, I had two. I couldn’t get enough of clear sweet taste, and honestly – and I know DC Striving and I have talked about this before – sometimes I just order them to get the lychee at the bottom. There must be a cheaper, less intoxicating way to go about this, but I have yet to discover it. Anyway…
In what is perhaps the best thing about you, you create within me the need to dance, dance, dance. So the solo dance party I had in my apartment when I got home was way fun and much needed. (Oh – and no hangover. Win.)
Thank you for being so delish, so interactive, and so energizing. You are officially my summer drink of choice (sorry – mojitos are soo 2008). All this lychee lovin’ has me really wanting to hit up the Gibson. I will have to get on that soon.
Do you have a favorite summer cocktail… or cocktail for any time of the year? If so- share it in the comments, please!
