lychee martinis

Where do I find lychees and the liquer/syrup to go into these glorious drinks???

    Lychees at any Asian market, I usually go to Spadina for these.

    Lychee liquer is called Soho, and is available at many LCBO stores. Use the www.lcbo.com search engine and look for product number 532234.

      Thank you so much for all of the information!
      I will look up #532234 at once!

        Good timing! Soho is on sale ($2 off) until the end of the weekend.

          I find Soho very gross, but I love lychees. I'd suggest making a vodka/gin martini and shaking it with some juice from canned/fresh lychees.

            I think I will take NovoCuisine's advice and use juice from canned/fresh lychees. I went to 2 liquor stores and they were sold out of Soho. Wonder why? The sale isn't THAT good!
