Ingredients

One 15-ounce can lychees in syrup, drained, syrup reserved, 4 lychees set aside for eyeballs

1/3 cup light corn syrup

3 to 6 drops red food coloring

4 blueberries

18 ounces ginger beer, cold

1 cup lychee juice, cold

Directions

  1. For the cocktail: In a blender, puree the lychees with 1/4 cup of the reserved syrup until smooth. Freeze for about 1 hour to chill.
  2. For the blood drip glasses: On a plate, mix the corn syrup and food coloring until fully combined. Dip 4 coupe glasses a couple times in the corn syrup mixture, swirling to cover the rims. Turn the glasses right-side up, let the syrup drip down the sides and then set on wax paper to dry, about 5 minutes.
  3. For the lychee eyeballs: Insert a blueberry into the hole of the 4 reserved lychees.
  4. Finish the cocktail: Add 3 tablespoons of the chilled lychee puree to each of the blood drip glasses. Fill to the top with ginger beer and a splash of lychee juice. Stir gently.
  5. Place lychee eyeball into each drink and serve.
