Miami Beach, May 13th 2013, – Miami Culinary Tours has introduced a new food stop on their beloved South Beach Tour. Guests will sip on a refreshingly fruity adult beverage in a brand new boutique hotel, inspired by the beloved film “The Birdcage”.
Inside the “cheek and chic” hotel is the restaurant locals are flocking to, the Cha Cha Rooster, and now guests of Miami Culinary Tours will gather here to enjoy Rooster’s Lychee Martini. A blend of smooth vodka, lychee juice and a whole peeled lychee that sinks to the bottom of a chilled martini glass. This drink is making a splash on Miami Culinary Tours guests, quickly becoming one of their favorite of the 7-8 stops that tour-goers experience.
The lychee, when peeled, is almost translucent with an incredible floral perfumed scent. The sweet fruit is in season (and ideal for martini’s) right now! Harvested between late May to the end of June the perfectly ripe fleshy fruit will delight your palate and take out the harsh kick of vodka in this delicate martini. Originally from China the lychee made it’s immigration to the U.S by landing on the Florida shores. Lychees were brought over here by Reverend William Brewster at the turn of the 20th century after a missionary trip to China. The grove he created is in Davie, Florida is still visible today.
From aboard the Brewster’s ship to floating in your martini, Miami Culinary Tours is proud to include this elegant and exquisite elixir on their South Beach food tour.
