We are having some very hot summer for the past few days. I've been stocking up the fridge with lots of fresh fruits. As usual watermelon and lychees are in season during this time so I bought some of it when I went groceries shopping last week. I am the only one eating them since Carlos is not fan of both fruits. I normally will share it with my neighbor but her family is away on holiday. So I have to find ways to finish them up. Besides eating them fresh, I used some to make cocktail drink. Actually it is my sister Elizabeth that told me about this combination and she said it is really good. Well, I agreed with her. This is a refreshing drink and great to serve it during hot and humid weather. I must confess though, I used canned lychees as I am just too lazy to peel and deseed them. Feel free to use to add a splash of vodka to drink if you like.
3 cups of cut watermelon
1 cup of can lychee
1/2 cup of the lychee syrup (amount depend on the sweetness you like)
2 cups of soda water
Place the watermelon, lychee, lychee syrup and ice in the blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into the serving glasses and top it with soda and garnish with watermelon. Enjoy!!
Note: You can add a splash of Vodka to the drink if you like.
