Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Serving Size: 1
Utensils: Cocktail shaker, cocktail stick, highball glass, fridge
- (1 ½ oz) Lichido Liqueur
- (1 ½ oz) vodka
- (1 oz) cranberry juice
- Splash of lime juice
- 3 lychee fruits or 2 maraschinos for garnishing – totally optional
Put a highball cocktail glass in a fridge as it is always better to serve Red Lotus Cocktail in finely chilled.
In the meantime, place all the ingredients in the cocktail shaker according to the quantity stated above.
Top the ingredients with some ice cubes and appropriately secure the lid on the cocktail shaker.
Hold the cocktail shaker firmly with both of your hands and shake it for at least 15 to 20 seconds to make sure all the ingredients will be absolutely mixed.
At this time, remove the chilled highball from fridge and strain the cocktail into it.
Note: Always place a strainer over top of the cocktail shaker in order to keep ices from crashing in your highball glass.
Insert a maraschino cherry or a lychee on a cocktail stick and place it in your Red Lotus Cocktail. Enjoy!
