Friday is normally my favourite day of the week. Master O goes to daycare, I often don’t have a huge to-do list and hubby takes over the night feed so I can get a good night’s sleep. But today, it has been a shocker! I have a cold and everything has become a little too much for this chicken. So as I settled my catnapping bub for the 4th time (Lord, give me strength!) I decided the best way to get through the day was to look forward to 5pm when I would ring in the weekend with a drink in hand.
Hard liquor would no doubt be medicinal given I have a cold, but this dreary weather here in Brissie has me in a funk only a tropical cocktail will fix.
My default cocktail setting is really anything with Lychees in it so I wanted to share with you my version of a Lychee Mojo. It is based on a cocktail I used to order on a Friday night years ago.
- 1 Shot Vodka
- 1/2 shot Paraiso Lychee Liqueur
- a squeeze of lime
- 2 lychees (fresh or tinned)
- sprig of mint to garnish
- Place ice and peeled and pitted lychees at the bottom of glass
- Add liquor and lime
- Top with Lemonade and garnish with a sprig of mint
So as I hit publish on this blog post I have had my first sip of my cocktail and it tastes SO GOOD! I feel better about today already. I recommend filing this recipe away in your head under, ‘Drinks to Try Before I Die’.
Have a Super weekend all. Cheers.
