Green tea flavored vodka with lychees stuffed with blue berries

Summary

Yield 2 serves
Preparation time 15 minutes
Cooking time 5 minutes
Main Ingredient Vodka/lychees

Ingredients

4 ounces Vodka

3 ounces lychee syrup/juice (canned lychees, drained, reserve syrup/juice and lychees)

2 ounces Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur

1 ounce green tea simple syrup**

For the Simple Syrup:

6 oz water

6 oz cup sugar

1 Green tea bag (or Double Green Matcha Tea - this gives a better green color)

Garnish:

Lychees

Blueberries

skewers

Instructions

For the Simple Syrup:

Bring water to a boil and pour into glass measuring cup. Let sit for one minute then add the green tea bag. Let steep 3 minutes. Remove the bag and add in the sugar, stir until dissolved then chill completely before using. This makes more than the drink calls for, store the remaining simply syrup in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Use it to sweeten other cocktails or even just a cup of green tea.

For the Cocktail:

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add in all the cocktail ingredients, shake well and divide between two martini glasses. Take a couple of the lychee fruits and put blueberries in them to make the “eyeballs” either sink a couple into the drink.
