The distinct flavor of the lychee fruit is the star of the Red Lotus cocktail. Here, a sweet lychee liqueur is used to accent the cranberry. It's an interesting play of flavors that is both intensely sweet and delicately refreshing. This is also a very simple mixed drink that you may quickly become a new favorite.
I like to garnish a Red Lotus with three pitted lychees skewered on a cocktail pick. You can also stuff the lychee with cranberries or blueberries for a special touch.
