Cool Lychee Martini Cocktail
This chilled, fruity, and mouth-watering lychee martini cocktail will satisfy your taste buds with a refreshing blend of vodka, lychee nectar, and liqueur. Fancy restaurants will ask you for up to $15 for this martini pop that you can easily make at home under $5 or maybe less!
If you’re not a fan of strong alcohol-based cocktails that dull down the sweet fruity flavors, this vodka-based martini is for you. We love the peach schnapps and lychee with St. Germain’s Elderflower Liqueur because of its floral hint, but you can use any liqueur that suits your taste buds.
What You’ll Need:
|· Vodka (any good brand)||· Peach schnapps|
|· St. Germain’s Elderflower Liqueur||· Canned lychee juice|
|· Lemon juice||· Fresh lychee for garnishing|
You could also drizzle some vermouth for the authentic martini touch. Read the full recipe here!
The Quarantini Cocktail
This our fun take on regular cocktails. It will brighten up your lazy quarantine day with the bright and exciting neon green hue and fruity sweetened flavor. Not only is it heavenly delicious, but it’s also a healthy treat filled with vitamin C goodness.
What You’ll Need
|· Vodka||· Green Melon Liqueur by Midori|
|· Fresh lemon juice||· Lime soda, tonic water, or any club soda|
If you don’t find vodka in your pantry, switch it with your regular tequila or gin. You can also use Sour Apple Schnapps instead of Midori if you don’t prefer the melon flavor.
