You will need (per drink):
37.5ml damson (or sloe) gin
1 lychee from a can plus 3 tsp of the syrup
Champagne to top up
It’s not particularly complicated but who can be bothered with all that exuberant shaking when you’ve just eaten a disgraceful amount of roast potatoes?
Pour the gin into a glass; over ice if you’d like. Plonk the lychee in with the syrup then top it up with Champagne.
You might want to play around with this recipe a little; if your gin is particularly sweet or sharp you may need a little more or less lychee syrup.
