Every year I watch the Kentucky Derby on tv. I will watch the show leading up to the race , enjoy looking at the surroundings, the fashion and the jockeys and horses. Each one so beautiful in their own right – good clean fun in the comfort of my living room. This year while noshing on some goodies, I will be trying a new cocktail drink , something light , a spritzer.
Lychee-Mint Spritzer – serves 2
Muddle 8 mint leaves with 2 teaspoons sugar in a cocktail shaker. Add 4 canned lychees, 1/4 cup syrup from the can, 3 ounces vodka and a squeeze of lime juice; shake with ice. Strain into 2 ice-filled glasses; top with seltzer. Repeat to make more drinks. Garnish with mint and lime.
Putting my money on a filly!!
