Mint Lychee Collins

Mint Lychee Collins

I love watching as each summer fruit comes back into season. This week, on my stop at the fruit vendor, I spotted the display of bright red pods. The lychees are back. Sweet, juicy, tropical little orbs. Great as a snack but even better in a cocktail.

I decided to use them to spruce up a basic Collins which is typically gin, lemon, sugar and club soda. It's a tall, icy drink that's perfect for warm weather and the tropical lychees made the perfect addition. Cheers!

Prep Time: 7 Minutes
Ingredients (1 Serving)
  • 2 oz. Gin
  • 1 oz. Pureed lychees
  • 1/2 oz. Lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. Simple syrup
  • 2 Mint leaves
  • 2 oz. Club soda
Peel the lychees, remove the pit and puree in a small food processor. You should net about 1 oz. of puree for every 4 lychees.

Add the gin, lychee puree, lemon juice, simple syrup and mint leaves to a tall Collins glass. Muddle the mint with a muddler or wooden spoon. Top with the club soda and fill with ice. Garnish with some additional lychees if desired.
