#DOTW: Lychee Love

I’m loving the weather!! Summer has finally shown its face in full force. Time for warm nights on the porch or the stoops, depending on where you live. Fourth of July is right around the corner, lets have a cocktail or two. I found this recipe while browsing menus of restaurants in cities in Germany that I’m planning on visiting this September. I feel it’s like a little preview of the fun I’m anticipating to have in my home country. I absolutely loved this drink, it is a perfect summer drink, and I’m sure you will too.

What you’ll need:

in a cocktail shaker muddle the mint leaves and one slice of lime. add ice, vodka, lime juice and bitters. Shake well. Add ice to a cocktail glass. Strain contents of the shaker into the cocktail glass. Top off with ginger ale. Garnish with a fresh slice of lime and a lychee.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
