The Lichitini (or Lychee Martini) is a luscious and sweet cocktail that features a lychee liqueur. The garnish is a single lychee which can be found, canned or fresh, at most Asian markets.

If you're unfamiliar with this super sweet fruit with its extreme sour bite, I recommend that you try one whole to get its full flavor. After that experience you will truly appreciate the flavors of this unique variation of the Martini.
