  • Fresh or canned, drained lychees
  • Blueberries
  • Red wine
  • Cranberry juice
  • Water or sparkling water
  • Ice
  • Red gel food coloring, optional
  • Small artist’s brush


  1. Assemble the “eyeballs”. I find that you need two blueberries per lychee. I usually press a smaller blueberry down into the bottom of the lychee opening and then find a blueberry that is size appropriate to the lychee opening, which can vary. You want that blueberry, which you will be able to see, to fit snuggly. Assemble as many “eyeballs” as you want. Use two per serving, max. These eyeballs can be refrigerated in an airtight container overnight.
  2. Right before serving, set out your glasses of choice. For wine, fill each glass with 5 ounces/150 ml. For the mocktails, fill the glasses with ice, then pour over up to 250 ml (or about 1 cup) of cranberry juice and top off with water or sparkling water. Gently lower eyeballs into drinks. If you want to accentuate the bloody effect, place a small amount of the red gel coloring in a small bowl, loosen up slightly with water to a thick, flowable consistency and “paint” bloody trails here and there on the lychees. Serve immediately.
