Lychee Martini IngredientsSo to make a lychee martini you'll need equal parts of 2 ounces of vodka of your choice, and lychee juice which is essentially pureed lychees.

Prep the MartiniSo start off by chilling a glass as you always should in a cocktail. You take a shaker with ice, take two ounces of vodka of your choice and two ounces of pureed lychee juice. Shake them up, dump the ice.
