Exotic Cocktail for Your Holiday

Thanks to everyone for the great raves over the parties Saffron 59 has catered, especially the exotic drinks. We've been getting many requests for our special drink recipes. During this holiday season we'd like to share one of our favorites, a simple, fun, and delicious mixed drink created by our mixologist Monamie...

Lychee Martini

1 oz Lychee Liqueur
3 oz Vodka (pref. infuse ahead with Lychees)
1 ½ oz Cointreau
1/2 oz Lychee Juice
Fresh Lychee or from a package to garnish
In a shaker filled with ice mix everything together. You can either shake this one or stir - shaken will cloud it up, while a slick stir will leave all things looking pretty.
Garnish with Lychee into the glass with cocktail pick and strain into a martini glass.
