Spring Fling with Lychee Lake Cocktail from LEAF® Vodka

Had enough of winter? Ring in the spring with a new cocktail from LEAF® Vodka called the Lychee Lake. With a refreshing blend of fruit, combined with a lovely spring color and a floral garnish, it is the perfect antidote to the winter blues!

We tried this Vodka for the first time and OH MY!  My husband who has a vodka and OJ every night almost fell in love with LEAF.  It is quite smooth and hits you just like an very expensive vodka! 

The combination of lychee and grapefruit bring out the crisp smoothness of the Alaskan Glacial water used to make LEAF Vodka, and the effervescence of the sparkling wine adds a refreshing quality that makes this cocktail a delightful escape.

LEAF believes vodka’s main ingredient, water, is what truly defines the spirit.  LEAF Vodka is sourced from unique waters here in the USA. One variety is made from Alaskan Glacial water, which lends a pure, smooth taste with a hint of sweetness. The other, made from Rocky Mountain mineral water, provides richness and complexity, offering a warm and savory impression. The water sources give LEAF Vodkas their signature tastes.

“LEAF Vodka’s naturally-sourced waters are fundamental to its taste and quality,” say Maxim  Dubossarsky, CEO of Global Spirits, owners of LEAF Vodka.  “These taste attributes, and the fact that the vodka is USDA Certified Organic, are being embraced by some of the nation’s leading mixologists.”

Lychee is currently my favorite fruit, but as they are only available fresh for a limited time in my area, I'm wondering if the puree is supposed to be from fresh or canned lychee? I believe they sell frozen ones at the Japanese market I frequent, but I don't know if they have them all the time. I definitely need to make this.
