I’m headed to Marseille in France this year for my summer vacation to relax, and this lychee Pastis refresher is the only thing I need to take with me besides my luggage. Pastis is made with herbs like fennel, anise, star anise, and licorice, and this one is called the Milk of Marseille. You need only lychee, limes, water, and mint. Chill, and then give it a good bubble infusion with the Breville InFizz Fusion. I’m going to serve it all summer long.

  1. Mix the lychee liquid, lime juice, pastis, and water in a bottle. Refrigerate until chilled.
