Someone get me a cocktail – STAT! Lychee Mojo

Someone get me a cocktail – STAT! Lychee Mojo

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
  • Lemonade
  • 2 lychees (fresh or tinned)
  • sprig of mint to garnish
  • Ice


  1. Place ice and peeled and pitted lychees at the bottom of glass
  2. Add liquor and lime
  3. 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.
