Adulting is basically the worst. Especially washing dishes and paying bills. Oh, and having to go to work when there’s nothing to do.I would rather have a root canal. Just let me go outside and play.
Sometimes, though, I like to enjoy the fun side of adulting. Specifically, cocktail parties. I occasionally get the urge to put on a sparkly dress, high heels, and lipstick and eat tiny foods with foreign cheeses all while drinking cold spirits. I can pretend I’m chic and sophisticated for five minutes. It’s awesome.
If you’re looking for a suave adult beverage this season, I recommend the Lycheetini. Good news is, you can use canned lychees, so there’s no obnoxious peeling involved. If you can’t find lychee juice, you could just use some club soda and some of the syrup from your canned lychees. Oh, and definitely keep saying lychee over and over again. It’s fun.
This cocktail is potent, refreshing, and just a tiny bit sweet. It’s pretty much the perfect combination. You can make them one drink at a time or multiply quantities to make a pitcher to share with friends. They’ll be so impressed.
Every now and then, being an adult can be pretty rad. Enjoy a Lycheetini, but, you know, be responsible. And fabulous.
