Litchi Champagne Cocktail

  • SERVINGS: 8

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.

  1. One 11-ounce can litchis, chilled
  2. 1 bottle brut Champagne or other dry sparkling wine, chilled
  1. Drop a litchi into each of 8 Champagne flutes and add 2 tablespoons of the litchi syrup from the can to each. Fill the flutes with Champagne and serve.
