Lychee Blackberry Martini
Who doesn’t like a fabulous martini, and if it has an edible eyball floating on top, it’s even better.
Halloween food or cocktails don’t have to be disgusting or scary, actually if you have imagination, Halloween can be anything you want it to be, with a bit of spookyness stirred in, of course.
Below am sharing a recipe of my go-to glamour-halloween martini. Hope you enjoy it!
- 2.5 dl vodka
- 1/2 dl blackerry pure
- 1/2 dl lychee juice from a can of lychee
- 1/2 dl elderflower (fläder) concentrate
- juice of one fresh lime
- For decoration, whole lychee from a can, a few blackberries and toothpicks.
Pour the blackberry puree, vodka, lychee and lime juice in a shaker with some ice cubes and give it a good shake.
If you puree the blackberries from frozen, make sure to filter through a sieve.
Pour into martini glasses or whatever you feel like drinking from. Maybe hubbys skull in this case since it’s halloween…
That’s a joke by the way! I love my hubby-)
To decorate, place a blueberry, frozen or fresh, inside the cavity a lychee (from the can) and thread a toothpick through the fruits to create a spooky eyeball.
Place your delicious lychee eyeballs over the martini glasses and if you happen to have gone to the trouble to procure dry ice, drop a piece of that in the martini glass before you present it, for full effect.
Now, you can count yourself amongs one of the bitchiest halloween hostesses with the mostest in you little village.
