Try this very delicately flavoured, cooling and refreshing lychee mojito mocktail. It is the perfect beverage to offer guests when they arrive at your next summertime get-together or party.
In the hot summer months it's always important to hydrate, and this fruity drink is a delightful way to do it. It can be prepared in minutes and enjoyed with friends. I've made a video that appears below the recipe to guide you through the process.
Do try it and share your experience.
|Prep time||Cook time||Ready in||Yields|
- 20-25 fresh pudina (mint) leaves
- 1 1/2 lemons
- 2 tsp ground sugar, or to taste
- 200 ml fresh lychee juice, made by grinding 12 lychees
- Chilled Sprite (or lemon-lime soda), as needed
- 6 crushed ice cubes, or as needed
- Cut the half lemon into quarters. Cut the whole lemon in half and then slice each half into quarters. In total, you should now have 12 lemon quarters.
- In a tall mug, add the mint, lemon quarters and ground sugar. With a wooden muddler, muddle the ingredients until they are crushed.
- Add the lychee juice and crushed ice. Stir well to dissolve the sugar.
- Top up with chilled Sprite, stir again and serve.
