After a week out of town for Spring Break, I was excited to be back in my familiar, cozy surroundings. I love, love, love to travel, and I love, love, love to come home.
We had errands to run during the day and while we were out and about, we stopped in at a favorite Mexican grocery store – my husband chose ox tail for dinner and I happened upon lychees, which were the inspiration for this cocktail. My husband cooked dinner, and we put the kids to bed and had a romantic date night in the comfort of our own home. Oh its good to be home.
5 ice cubes
1.5 ounces Bacardi
1 ounce peach schnapps
2 ounces lychee juice (I used the juice from a can of lychees)
1 lychee (for garnish)
Place ice in a cocktail shaker. Pour in Bacardi, peach schnapps and lychee juice. Cover and shake well.
Strain into a chilled martini glass, garnish with a whole lychee.
