Lychee Martini

Lychee Martini
Matthew Kelly / Supercall

Sweet, floral and dangerously gulpable, the Lychee Martini arrived on the scene a couple of decades ago and just refuses to leave. And with good reason. Clean and crisp, it’s one of the better fruity Martini iterations to flood the market. Most commonly seen on cocktail menus at Asian fusion spots, the drink’s tropical flavors work beautifully with spicy Asian foods, but it’s also perfectly delicious served solo as an aperitif or digestif.
