September cooking club - party drink

For this month's cooking club challenge, I made my own lychee and mint muddle! 
Even though it's only September, it's really starting to feel a lot like summer here in Sydney. When I found out that this month's cooking challenge is to make a party drink, I immediately thought of this cool little sweet treat. It is delicious, refreshing, fun and incredibly easy to make. Perfect for those long hot summer days ahead. You can also make it kid-friendly by swapping the sparkling wine for lemonade. How good is that?!
Here's how:

Ingredients

1 cup ice
1 tin lychees
20 mint leaves
1 tablespoon honey
750 ml sparkling wine

Method

Blend ice, 10 lychees, mint leaves and honey. Add to serving jug.
Top up with sparkling wine.
Add remaining lychees.
Cheers!

Don't forget to check out what party drinks the other club cookers came up with!

This looks AMAZING Trishie! I LOOOOVE lychee and mint but have never tried a drink that combined the two together. I MUST try this asap before it starts getting REALLY cold here ( Fall has already creeped in and the nights are slowly but surely getting chillier :/)

Trishie, if you and I ever meet for a picnic will you please make this?!! It sounds so divine! Although I would swap the wine for sparkling water. Yum. I hope you've had a great weekend. xx
