10 Reasons why you should enjoy a Lychee Nut Martini

This is the last recipe post from our Chinese New Year Celebration.  Frank made us some delicious Lychee Martinis to go along with our dinner.  Tingting was happy because she loves Lychees.  I had never even heard of them until we found this recipe.  I bought them canned but you can also get them fresh.  I think I will look for them the next time I am at the international market.

According to Wikipedia there are 10 good reasons why you should eat Lychees.

  1. I've never heard of lychees. But anything that ends in Martini can't be bad!

    1. They are very good. Tingting says they grow on trees and are red or yellow. You remove the peel and there is white flesh underneath with an inedible seed. I bought mine canned and they were very good.
