I took a cue from Flemish Minx and greatly reduced the quantity--I just wanted one cocktail. I must say I enjoyed it, but I too didn't get the sense of lychee that I anticipated. Good drink tho, Rita! Thanks!
This was great. I made a smaller batch, just for me, and even went to the bother of salting the glass. really refreshing.
I recently discovered Lichido Liqueur, with which I make a sublime Lychee Margarita. It masks the taste of the tequila beautifully. It also has hints of peach and guava in it. If you want it less sweet, leave out any lychee pulp or juice (it's totally superfluous). Maybe I'll open a Lichido Margarita stand in the summer and make a killing!!!!
I served this to my in-laws who had never tasted a margarita before. While each of us enjoyed it, we all agreed that we couldn't taste the lychees, but as a garnish they do add an exotic look to the drink. My husband's opinion was that the lime was a bit overpowering and he would have liked more tequila (but that is par for the course). I prefer a regular margarita, but this isn't bad at all. I think you are underestimating the yield (or your serving glasses are enormous, Rita !). I got 9 good-sized drinks from this recipe. Thanks for posting !
