Lychee Lemonade

I haven’t had as many drink recipes on the blog as I want, so I was determined to fix that and come up with something unique. I was in the supermarket and saw the lychees and since it is officially summer and lychees aren’t in season long, I decided to go with a lychee lemonade.  Wow did it ever turn out well!  If you like lychee, definitely try this.  This lemonade can easily be served alcohol free, or for a bit of punch add some Kirkland vodka to make a real pleasing cocktail.

Ingredients
For each drink
  • 10 lychee
  • optional: 1 shot Kirkland vodka
  • 1¼ cups Kirkland organic lemonade (other lemonades will work but this one has just the right level of sweetness)
  • Optional garnish: a mint sprig or a piece of fruit

Instructions
  1. Peel the lychee and remove the pit.
  2. Add the lychee meat to a blender, add the lemonade and a cube or two of ice.
  3. Blend on high until mixed.
  4. Run the drink through a strainer so as to remove any coarse chunks of fruit and ice.
  5. In a glass with a few ice cubes, optionally add the shot of vodka and then add the lychee drink.
  6. Add the garnish and then enjoy, but watch out these are so good they’ll catch up to you!
