Jeepers Creepers Martini #SundayFunday

Updated: Oct 15, 2023

Today Sue of Palatable Pastime is leading the Sunday Funday group in sharing Halloween drinks and cocktails. She wrote: "Share a drink with us suitable for a Halloween party. Cocktails, Mocktails, Punch, anything goes."


Stacy of Food Lust People Love, Sue of Palatable Pastime, Rebekah of Making Miracles, and Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm coordinate this low-stress group; we only participate when we are inspired. Thanks, again, to Sue for hosting this week. Here's the line-up of our libation creations...



While the fun factor is in the eyeball garnish, I have to admit that the cocktail is pretty darn tasty, too.


Ingredients

makes 1 cocktail


  • 2 ounce gin

  • 1-1/2 ounces syrup from the canned lychees

  • 1 ounce Chartreuse liqueur

  • Also needed: cocktail shaker, ice cubes



Eyeball Garnish

  • canned lychees

  • blueberries

  • skewers


Procedure


Drain the lychees, reserving the canning syrup for the cocktail. Place a blueberry in the lychee to form the eyeballs, then skewer them to make a pair.


Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour all the ingredients into the shaker. Shake well and strain into a serving glass.


Serve immediately! Cheers.


To make these non-alcoholic substitute, just use the lychee syrup and sparkling water.


That's a wrap for my Halloween-inspired libation. The group will be back next week and taking a break from the Halloween posts to share Diwali recipes. Stay tuned!

At first, I thought those were onions and olives! Lychees and blueberries sounds much better for the liqueur.
