Litchi (Lychee) Lemon Cooler

Litchi is a popular summer fruit, packed with loads of flavor and nutrition. I wanted to make a sweet but slightly tangy drink for the summer and what better than a combination of litchi (Lychee) and lemons! This is an ideal refresher drink for summers or even during monsoon and is so easy to make. In this post, I have for you a quick and easy litchi (Lychee) lemon cooler recipe to beat the heat this summer.

Litchi-Lemon

Prep time: 15 mins
Cook Time : 5 mins
Served: Cold/Chilled

Ingredients:

Measuring cup used 1 cup = 200 ml
12-15 litchis (lychees)
3.5 cups water
4 large/6 small lemons
Pinch of Salt
Sugar (As required)
Few mint leaves (garnish)
Lemon slice (garnish)
Ice cubes (optional)

Method:

Litchi

After peeling off the litchi skin by hand, discard the seed and remove the fresh white litchi. In a blender make a smooth puree of the litchis. There will be some tiny bits of litchi and you can remove them using a sieve.

In a jar mix the litchi, lemon juice & sugar and give it a good stir. Add in a pinch of salt and give it a mix again.

Tip: You can also add some ginger juice to the same for extra flavor.

Pour the litchi lemonade in a glass,  top up with couple of ice cubes and garnish with some mint leaves. Enjoy this cooler with your friends and family!
