This summery bright cocktail creation is super simple—we think it’d make the perfect refreshment this party season. It’s quick to whip up and certainly a crowd pleaser! Named after it’s creator, Cristina Riches of Bird’s Party, the ‘Birdie’ is the perfect new cocktail for any summery event. After finding some delicious lychee liqueur, Cristina created this cocktail and added salt to the rim of the glasses to balance the sweetness. Just rim one half of the glass for the perfect amount! Have a go at ‘Birdie’ and serve at your next soiree!
