My guest reviewer, Clemence, highly recommends The Red Lotus Cocktail to sip on while reading The Good Earth. I have never tried lychee liqueur, but plan on picking some up the next time I go to the liquor store. It has been described as sweet, with a flavor that’s been likened to strawberries and watermelons. That sounds like something I need in my life.
This recipe looks like a fun way to liven up the usual Cape Cod Cocktail. The bright red color makes it perfect for any Christmas gathering.
1 1/2 ounces vodka
1 1/2 ounces lychee liqueur
1 ounce cranberry juice
Optional: Lime wedge for garnish
Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well. Strain into a chilled old-fashioned glass filled with ice. Enjoy!
