The team at Purus Vodka is always researching, creating and sharing great ways to use this refined spirit. We’ve done everything from cook with Purus Vodka, to creating fresh fruit vodka infusions – which we can’t get enough of by the way! And so we wanted to hear from the cocktail community and we came across an excellent recipe from food/drink blogger Dorothy Reinhold of Shockingly Delicious for lychee-infused vodka. Wow! Talk about delicious, exotic and perfect for summer.
This got us going, so we continued to dig through our recipe archives and found a recipe from our good friend Tim Kosuge at ARAKA Restaurant in St. Louis, Missouri that puts lychee front and center. The name is oh, so appropriate, as we don’t think there’s any lychee cocktail in the running to compare!
- 2 oz. PURUS Organic Vodka
- 1 oz. Fresh lychee juice
- 1/2 oz. St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
- 1/2 oz. Fresh lime juice
- Fresh lychee garnish
Shake all ingredients vigorously with ice in a cocktail shaker. Pour into a martini glass, and garnish with fresh lychee fruit skewered on a cocktail pick. Enjoy!
