20ml lychee liqueur
30ml Slingsby vodka
Handful of mint leaves
Half a lime, juice only

– Add all of the ingredients to a Boston shaker and shake over cubed ice until the tin frosts over
– Double strain into a rocks glass filled with cubed ice
– Garnish with a mint sprig and strawberry that’s been sliced in half
