Lychee Martini Madness

Lychee Martini Madness

27 March, 2010|Posted in: Dinner

Hey everyone! Hope you are having a nice weekend! I am exhausted from going out Friday and then having school Saturday morning bright and early! I may have fallen asleep on more than one occasion in the middle of class today! Oops! I can’t fall asleep now that it is bed time so I decided to do a little Friday night recap!

I had a quick dinner at Whole Foods after work on Friday!


I got tofu, broccoli, peas, edamame, mushrooms, peppers, sprout salad, seaweed salad, kale quinoa salad, string beans, and more! A reader asked me what kind of dressing I use on my salads last week. I usually use vinegar since it has a nice strong flavor and has almost no calories. I used oil and vinegar last night. I also enjoy using salsa and some vinaigrettes too.


I had a Synergy Kombucha to drink. I haven’t had one in months! I got a slight addiction to that stuff last summer and had to quit since it got too expensive! I decided that one every now and then would be fine!

After dinner, I met Dori and her friends at Merchant’s for her birthday! As I said in a previous post, Merchant’s has the best lychee martinis ever! I ended up having 3!


I also had a taste of the Chocotini. Yummm.



After Merchant’s, we decided to go to another bar across the street. I got a vodka soda with a splash of cranberry.


I had a few drinks with Dori and her cousin. They look like sisters, right?? I think so! A really creepy guy started chatting with us so we knew it was time to leave. He brought up girl’s shirts coming off and we quickly ran out the door. Ew.

We ended the night with a drunken pizza stop! I got a slice of mushroom. It was the best thing ever.


I think all that grease prevented me from having a hangover this morning. Maybe not but I’ll just keep telling myself that :) I got home around 2:30 and had to be up at 7:00 for school! I chugged a coffee this morning and made it to class on time! It was a great day at school once again! I will do a recap of that later with a little summary of what I learned! I have school again tomorrow so I better attempt to sleep now! Have a good one!

What is your favorite alcoholic beverage (if you drink!)??

    I like wine. Sometimes beer. Oddly enough, I don’t have a favorite drink, I guess.

    BEER BABY!!! I can’t live without it. I love beer. I’m not a lush, I don’t drink a ton, but my favorite thing after a long day is a cold beer. My favorites are Sierra Nevada, Paulaner, Sam Adam’s summer ale, Anchor Steam, and Bar Harbor Blueberry ale!!! Of course I also like a good chocolate martini. I can’t say not to that.

    What’s a lychee martini?? I am super curious now!

    As for drinks, I like whatever is cheap or a guy is buying for me lol I am pretty equal opportunity but normally stick with beer. If I drink too much wine or liquor, I feel like crap the next day.

    Ahh I’ve been wanting to try a Lychee martini forever. They look so refreshing!

    It seems like you always have such a great time when you’re out with friends. I wish we could’ve all hung out more at FitBloggin’!!

    Litchi martini sounds tasty! My friend had litchi ice cream yesterday. I guess they’re a pretty cool little fruit! My favorite beverage is simple vodka/OJ screwdriver! Hope school went well!

    You’re a trooper! I hate having to wake up early after a night of drinking. The martinis look so good. And vodka, soda, & a splash of cran is my go-to low calorie/low sugary tasting drink. :)

    Lychee is an Asian fruit that is realllly good. I guess almost similar to green grapes.

    Ah, you girls are so beautiful! I wish I could have been there to celebrate!

    I’ve just been breaking into the realm of drinking, but thus far I’m a vodka soda kind of girl, but new castle (on tap) and yuengling are good beers!

    Might I recommend a Mike’s Hard RASPBERRY Lemonade!!!
    They are limited edition, but soooooooo delicious.
    Great if you just want something to drink, but not get drunk.

    My usual staple is a sex on the beach. Probably FULL of calories, but I’m such a chick when it comes to drinking! I hate beer or strong drinks.
    A blue Rockstar and blueberry vodka is always very tasty too :)
    *(does suggesting THREE different drinks make me sound like an alcoholic? haha)

    that pizza look SO GOOD! I love mushrooms on pizza, I made some last night acutally (on a wrap, so nothing like yours but still delish!)

    mm lychee martini’s are awesome too! I had an amazing one at this japanese Restaurant downtown boston and haven’t had one since but theyre So good!
    my drink of choice would be VINO! if white, pinot grigio, if red, im flexible but love syrah or malbec :)

    I dont discriminate alcohol! lol But i will avoid almost always RUM and Whiskey. Once you get really messed up on one of those its hard to go back to them, they are like a lover that broke your heart. lol

    I like a good slice of pizza after heavy drinkage!
    Good call on leaving hte bar. Recently there was a young woman at a lounge who was asked to dance, she said no and the guy followed her to the restroom and brutally beat her and left her unconscious on the bathroom floor! FUCKIN PSYCHOS! best thing you ever did was to leave when psycho approached!

    My go to drink is rum + diet coke to keep the calories down…but my true love is a dirty grey goose martini. Your martinis look delicious!
