About This Recipe
Litchi or Lychee Lemonade makes up as a super delicious cooler every summer! Its flavor would refresh your senses and you would love to relish it again.
I have never been a big fan of summer, instead, I wait for it to get over. However, I love the bounty of stone fruits that flood the market during this time of the year. Apricots, mangoes, peaches, cherries, litchies and plums, these fruits make me literally wait for the summer and I go mad once these fruits start to show in the market.
I love to nibble on these fruits as fruit salad or incorporate them for making various coolers, desserts or main course dishes. For today, I gave an Old Fashioned Lemonade a new avatar by adding fresh litchi pulp to it.
The result was a refreshing and soothing drink which was delicious to sip on. I like my drinks smooth so I strained the lemonade once it was ready. You can skip straining it and can munch it small, soft bits of litchi .
Litchi has a good amount of antioxidant Vitamin C, Vitamin B. Litchi helps in the formation of blood cells and even provides us with iron. It even reduces sunburn and promotes hair growth. You all need to surely feast on more litchis now!
