Eye Spy Cocktail (serves 2 martini glasses)
This fun and fruity cocktail is given a spooky twist with a few floating lychee “eyeballs”. They may look scary but the tropical taste of this drink will soon have you eyeing another.
1 oz. simple syrup
½ can tinned lychees (2 oz. of syrup for the cocktail and 3-4 lychees for garnish)
1 oz. pineapple juice
1 oz. orange juice
4 oz. vodka
1. In a cocktail shaker muddle the simple syrup with the mint leaves.
2. Add the lychee syrup, pineapple juice, orange juice and vodka. Fill the shaker with ice and shake for 30 seconds.
3. Pour into a glass through a strainer and garnish with “eyeballs”
Eyeball garnish: Put blueberries inside the lychees. Either skewer them on toothpicks or let them sink to the bottom of the martini glass.
