I handwired the sterling silver charm with beads in two shades of red recycled glass and a tiny garnet round to form this one of a kind pendant and suspended it on a simple sterling silver chain. The necklace closes with a sterling silver lobster clasp.
I will be listing this necklace on etsy soon. Until then, here's Jenn's Red Lotus Martini recipe. Cheers!
Red Lotus Martini
makes 2 martinis
Slice of lemon & red sugar for garnish
Handful of ice
8 oz. Red Lotus Punch*
2 oz. Vodka
1 Lychee fruit on a decorative pick for garnish
Prepare two martini glasses by rubbing the rims with the lemon slice. Then, dunk rim in a shallow dish filled with the red sugar.
In a cocktail shaker, put ice, punch, and vodka. Cover and shake. Pour in to prepared martini glasses and garnish with one of the lychees from the punch and a decorative pick.
*Red Lotus Punch (makes one large pitcher)
64 oz. Cranberry Cocktail
1 15 oz. can Lychee Fruit (found in the Asian food section of most markets)
1 1/4 cups Passion Fruit Juice
1/3 cup Grenadine (good quality pomegranate based, rather than high fructose based)
Put all ingredients in a large pitcher, including the fruit & juice from the can of Lychees. Rest in the refrigerator for several hours before serving, to allow time for the flavors to marry.
