Lemon Lychee Martini

August 9, 2019Sew White

Enjoy a sip on a Lemon Lychee Martini. A mix of limoncello, sweet lychee juice mixed with vodka and topped up with the double lemon mixer from Double Dutch.

I love lychees! They are a strange and fairly unknown fruit to most people, some people saying they look like eye balls. However they are delicious. They are so squidgy and super sweet but in a fresh natural way. They are so versatile too. As well as being good on their own and in curries (major yum when it’s with a spicy hot sauce) but also in drinks and cocktails.

This drink is so refreshing and perfect to enjoy in the summer sunshine. I love the lychee and lemon flavours combined. It also has a great taste which isn’t too strong of alcohol so be warned the tipsy feeling will sneak up on you!

Double Dutch

To make this cocktail I used the double lemon premium mixer from the increibdle company Double Dutch. Double Dutch was founded by Dutch twins Raissa and Joyce de Haas. Their love of flavour of creating delicious mixers have lead to a brilliant range that doesn’t even really need alcohol to enjoy with it. Find out more about their drinks here.

There are some great flavours in their collection as well as the traditional tonics, ginger beers and soda water. I would definitely recommend the cucumber and watermelon mixer and cranberry and ginger mixer. The latter which will definitely be used for Christmas cocktails I’m sure.

To create the beautiful lemon ribbons for the cocktail I used the OXO Good Grips Citrus Zester with Channel Knife. It produces uniformed ribbons of zest perfect for cocktails and decorations

Double Dutch Double Lemon has a very strong flavour which is brilliant for mixing with spirits but it’s also got enough flavour for enjoying on it’s own. It’s tartness is great if you love that real lemon flavour.
