If you’ve never tasted lychee, you don’t know what you’re missing. This peculiar fruit tastes and smells far better than it looks. Find canned lychees at gourmet stores or in the exotic food aisle of your grocer.

  • 3 slices of cucumber
  • 1/4 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1 oz lychee juice (from can)
  • 2 lychees
  • 1 1/2 oz Brotherhood Riesling

Muddle cucumber & lychees in bottom of mixing glass. Add lemon, wine, lychee juice. Shake in ice filled shaker (you can also stir the drink extremely well, in lieu of shaking). Strain into martini glass. Drop a lychee into the bottom of the drink for a pleasant surprise.
