Litchi Champagne Cocktail

Corinne Trang first tasted this exotic aperitif at a Vietnamese restaurant in Paris. It's a variation on the kir royale, combining sweet Asian litchis and their syrup (instead of black currant syrup) with dry French Champagne. A bottle of another sparkling wine is an acceptable and less expensive alternative to Champagne.
