“From the 'New Idea: ultimate barbecue cookbook'. I haven't made this yet but it sounds SO delicious and what a nifty way of getting juice and zest into the drink without having to grate the limes! Sounds also like a great Christmas Day - or any other festive occasion - drink and particularly a welcome cooling drink on a hot day, whether it's served at a BBQ or indoors!”

Directions

  1. Drain the lychees and reserve the syrup; set aside six lychees for decoration.
  2. Place the remaining lychees, limes and sugar into a large ziplock bag; crush with a meat mallet or rolling pin until the fruit turns pulpy; strain the juices into a large jug; add the reserved syrup; cover and refrigerate.
  3. Just before serving, add the sparkling wine; pour into champagne glasses; decorate with the extra lime slices and a lychee, and serve.
