Our wedding this past weekend was in Ft. Lauderdale. We decided to go down early. We have been to Miami a few times in the past year and we really wanted to try Azul, the restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental. Every time we try to get in (at the last minute) they are booked. So we called early and we were in! We went to the bar first and to my surprise, they had Lychee martinis! My old roomate in NYC, Shannon, introduced me to these when I was in the city a few months ago. I love them – but you can’t find them anywhere. I’ve tried all over Orlando and no one even knows what I am talking about. Then we went to Dallas, and the W at Dallas had them no problem. I knew I loved Dallas! So the first thing I asked for was the Lychee martini when we arrived at the Mandarin. So three cities now carry this hard to find drink!
I made a little video of our trip. Check it out:
