The distinct flavor of the lychee fruit is the star of the Red Lotus cocktail. It is a very simple mixed drink that you may quickly find becomes a new favorite.

Here, a sweet lychee liqueur is used to accent the cranberry. It's an interesting play of flavors that is both intensely sweet and delicately refreshing. It is also just a little different from many of our favorite vodka cocktails, so it's a nice drink to break up any routine.

I like to garnish a Red Lotus with three pitted lychees skewered on a cocktail pick. You can also stuff the lychee with cranberries or blueberries (similar to this eyeball garnish, without the 'gore').
