Summer Cocktail: Flying Lotus

flying lotus recipe

When I went to the Periphere media event at the Domison store last week, they served us a refreshing cocktail made with lychee. I felt in love with it. And thanks to @Clarah I can share the recipe with you. I predict that it will become one of your favorite cocktails this summer.
