Author Notes

Just when I'd given up all hopes of ever being able to enjoy lychees in North America, the husband managed to save not just the day, but a good 7 years, by scoring a neat haul of the fruit at a local Indian store in Surrey, British Columbia, so I promptly guzzled more than half the spoils and used the remaining to make this sundowner!⁠

Ingredients
  • 1 ounce gin of any kind (I used Bombay Sapphire, but if you want extra oomph, I recommend Empress Gin)
  • 2-3 ripe lychees, a bit excessively muddled⁠
  • 1/2 a navel orange, juiced⁠
  • 1 tablespoon simple syrup (add more if you like your drinks on the sweeter side)⁠
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • Sparkling water
In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker (or if you're like me and don't own one yet, a protein shaker bottle works *reaally* well). Strain into an old fashioned glass, add some more crushed ice and top off the glass with sparkling water. Garnish with a lychee, slice of orange, and some mint leaves!
  2. Note: Leave out the gin for an equally amazing mocktail!
