Drink of the Week

Lychee BelliniBeijing Bellini

  • 3 parts Champagne or Dry Italian Prosecco
  • 1 part Lychee wine or Lychee Liquor

Garnish: 1 Lychee dropped to bottom of glass

Today is Chinese New Year, and we have been thrown in to the year of the SNAKE! In honor of this occasion I thought I should put up a ‘Chinese themed’ recipe.

Year of the Snake

The recipe above was actually created in celebration of the 2008 Summer Olympics that were held in Beijing that year.  Mixologist Andrew Krauss decided to replace traditional peach with lychee liquor for a different kind of Bellini recipe, and presented it at New York City’s China 1 Antique Restaurant and Lounge in 2008.

This is a delicious, sweet and simple drink. If you like lychee, you’ll love this! 🙂
