Teaser Cocktail by Trolleyd

Here's another delightful throwback cocktail from the era when Byron was crafting unique drinks during his time at Tetsuya's. This nostalgic mix combines an intriguing array of flavors for some light-hearted fun.

You'll need

  • 4 fresh lychees, adding a tropical, sweet zest to the drink
  • 30 ml Tanqueray gin, known for its dry and crisp botanicals
  • 25 ml apple juice, introducing a mild, fruity sweetness that balances the stronger flavors
  • A dash of Hennessy VS Cognac, lemon juice, apricot liqueur, lychee liqueur, and sugar syrup, each enhancing the cocktail with complex, rich undertones
  • To serve:
  • peeled red grapes, which provide a refreshing garnish


  • Begin by placing the fresh lychees in a cocktail shaker. Use a muddling stick or a rolling pin to thoroughly crush them, extracting their juicy flavors. This base of muddled fresh lychees sets a unique, fragrant foundation for your cocktail.
  • Add the Tanqueray gin, apple juice, and dashes of Hennessy VS Cognac, lemon juice, both apricot and lychee liqueurs, and sugar syrup into the shaker. These ingredients contribute layers of flavor that are both complex and harmonious.
  • Fill the shaker with plenty of ice and shake vigorously. This not only chills the mix but also helps to marry all the diverse components together.
  • Strain the cocktail mixture using a fine strainer into a tumbler to ensure a smooth beverage free from pulp and ice chips. The fine straining process is key to achieving a polished final drink.
  • Garnish with peeled red grapes. The grapes add an enticing visual appeal and a burst of fresh juiciness as you enjoy the drink.

This cocktail recipe, featuring Tanqueray gin blended with the aromatic juicy essence of fresh lychees and a subtle dash of apple juice, creates a perfect drink to relive the magical bar moments at Tetsuya's. Enjoy crafting this vibrant cocktail, which promises a delightful sip with every taste.
