Pink grapefruit, a popular winter fruit, stars in this pretty beverage. Look for canned lychee fruit, which has a delicately sweet flavor, in the ethnic foods aisle at the supermarket or at Asian groceries. Use the leftover lychees in a fruit salad. If you're preparing our Cocktail Party Menu, you'll want to double this recipe.
