VVC Cocktail Lounge: Jen’s Lychee Cranberry Sunrise

Posted on Updated on

Today’s cocktail lounge submission comes from my (Jess’) sister, Jen, and this is as much of an introduction as we’re going to get.

Since we’re both devotees of the lychee martini, I’ve been holding out for her secret ratios. And since her boyfriend is a photographer, I figured we were all in luck.

This final product, which she sent me by semi-surprise last weekend, is stunning, but clearly, my sister remains a flashy, on-the-fly bartender…

Jenny types:
Fresh squeezed tangerines, splash of pure cranberry juice, splash of lychee juice (not syrup!), with a lychee at the bottom!
-
You add the cranberry at the end, slowly along the side of the glass to get the effect. 
-
Shaken not stirred.

Jess inquires:

ALCOHOL?

YOU OFF THE JUICE?
-
Jenny types:
-
HOW COULD I FORGT! Vodka
-
[Forgotten letter remains for hilarity]
-
This morning, the final day of MoFo, I call my sister, who’s rushing on  her way to work, and ask her to quickly describe this cocktail in one word. Her reply?  
-
Delicious.
-
And her sincere, parting words:
-
If you want a drink, you make this drink.

        I was scared to say that because then she might see it. And kill me.
