On return to Seattle from a weekend in Vancouver, we stopped at the border and stocked up on a few spirits. We’d had some delicious lychee martinis at a bar in Vancouver, so lychee liqueur was a must. We got some vanilla vodka and a few other treats.
The next time we made cocktails in, we created the following drink, mixed in a cocktail shaker over ice:
2 shots lychee liqueur
1 shot vanilla vodka
Pink grapefruit juice
Juice of one lime
Serve in martini glasses rimmed with sugar. Serves two.
Sitting and sipping our homemade cocktails, my boyfriend mentioned that these were at least $10 drinks in a bar, probably more.
Realizing that they cost us less than a dollar each, we dubbed them the “$9 off.” Enjoy.
