This is slightly indulgent, a little exotic and possibly a bit too Martha Stewart, but it is the perfect tonic for any day that starts with a headache and a bout of nausea. Serve with poached fruit and granola.
- Cut the apples into quarters, then core.
- Put the apples and lychees through a juice extractor. If you don't have one, replace the apples with 200ml of apple juice and blend with the lychees in a liquidiser.
- Place the crushed ice in 2 tall glasses and pour in the apple juice.
- Top up with ginger ale, soda water and lychee syrup, then push the mint sprigs down into the glasses. Serve immediately.
