Drink of the Week: Lychee Cocktail

Happy Vietnamese Lunar New Year! It sure made for a great weekend! Inspired by a truly divine dinner at Umenehana in Beverly Hills, we decided to have lychee cocktails last night. What a fantastic concoction. Lychees are the incredible, sweet fruit of a Chinese tree and they are perfect for Valentines day! (Before you peel them, they are red, and when you peel them they are juicy and sexy as can be) There are lots of great ways to eat them, but this recipe is a nice introduction. If you can't find lychee liqueur, just use the syrup from the canned product. Works like a charm. Enjoy!

1 ½ shot best quality vodka
¼ tablespoon Soho Litchi Liqueur
Squeeze of lime
Lychees, for garnish

Combine vodka, liqueur or syrup, lime and ice and strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with the lychee and serve.

Shares in Allied Domecq (Malibu rum, Courvoisier and Stolichnaya - as well as Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins.) have risen on speculation that it could be the target of a takeover by France's Pernod Ricard. Reports in the Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times suggested that the French spirits firm is considering a bid, but has yet to contact its target. Allied Domecq shares rose 4% while Pernod shares in Paris slipped 1.2%. Pernod's last major purchase was a third of US giant Seagram in 2000, the move which propelled it into the global top three of drinks firms. The other two-thirds of Seagram was bought by marketleader Diageo. –

The Original Continental Hotel in Saigon lichee cocktail. This comes close-. But if I use fresh lychees, what can I use for drink flavor? Any suggestions? I can't remember what they used for a base........
