    It wasn’t long after I discovered fresh lychees that I also discovered they could be used to infuse their unique flavor in vodka.

    Yeah, I went there, and I think you should, too!

    Straight up or over some crushed ice, this is a strong cocktail for the adventurous. Isn’t that you?

    Live a little. Summer’s almost here and school’s almost out. Yikes!
