Lychee Martini's are great. What I do is take the juice of the canned Lychee,in a pot add water to double the amount of liquid, add some of the fruit and sugar. Reduce the liquid until you get the desired lychee flavor that you like best. I make a large batch ahead of time and place in refrigerator. No martini should be server warm or watered down.

Perfect. Absolutely perfect. Balanced; not sweet, not liquor-y. But you'll definitely run out of lychee juice before running out of lychee fruit. So use 3 or even 4 lychees per drink. And *definitely* use Thai lychees, not Chinese lychees. And use decent vodka (I used Ketel One with great results.

Yummy! Tried this at home with friends and it turned out great!
A few takeaways:
1. Lychee juice we used was the syrup from the canned lychee. Canned lychees are easy to find at Asian grocery stoes and are about 1.99/can.
2. This is an asian fruit so most of my friends were not aware of what a lychee is and didn't like the texture and didn't eat the garnish.
3. But since most of my friends were new to lychees, most people were trying a lychee martini for the first time and really liked the flavor. My girl friend had a lychee martini once before and paid $13 for it so making this at home is a better alternative.
