If you have access to fresh lychee, you can certainly use those as well. To make lychee juice, remove the skin and the seed, then run them through a juicer, or you can also use a blender to make a slightly thicker puree.
Fill your cocktail shaker halfway with ice, then add 6 oz lychee syrup (or juice), 4 oz vodka and 1/2 oz vermouth.
Shake vigorously for about 20 seconds, then pour into martini glasses. Garnish with fresh or canned lychee fruit.
