A recipe from Ricardo.
- 5 cups water
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 cup lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
- 1 cup Malibu rum (you can add more if wanted) or 1 cup white rum (you can add more if wanted)
- 14 ounces lychee in a light syrup
- In a saucepan, bring to boil 1 cup water and sugar stirring until sugar is dissolved. Pour in a pitcher. Add lemon juice, rum, lytchi and their syrup. Put in fridge around 4 hours or all night.
- Serve with ice.
So exotic and exquisite! Really loved these! I used only the light syrup from the can of lychees, the fruit was gone already, but they were not really needed in this recipe, we thought. All that lychee flavour was in the syrup. I used less sugar, too. Used Malibu, 1 cup enough for hint of coconut flavour, if more alcoholic beverage was required, I would add the 1 cup light rum, as well.
Based on another review, I cut the amount of sugar and used only some of the lychee syrup. And... they were wonderful - refreshing with a perfect blend of sweet and tart with a whisper of coconut. I topped each glass off with a splash of diet cherry 7-up. made for ZWT9 Soup-a-Stars
This was really yummy, but pretty sweet. I think next time I'd blend it so the lychees got mixed in. Made for ZWT8
