Lychee is an tropical fruit from china which is one of our fav fruit now . This was the first time My H picked some lychee from grocery . My h was so gud to pick them and tell me to make some innovative dish. Then i thought omg he is so confident that i will surely make use of them in a yummy manner :P so to keep up his confidence level i made a delicious drink.
The inside of a lychee is a clear, pinkish-white color. .. The outside of the fruit is a hard spiky shell. Its seed is brown or black some times in color and very hard. The seeds are poisonous and should not be eaten. The fruit is rare because dragon fruit climbs the bough on lychee plants, causing them to die. The lychee has a sweet taste, and may be frozen, made into sauces, jam, puree, or preserves. When frozen, the lychee tastes similar to sorbet. Today i made a chilled lemonade prefect for hot days isn't it .. Lets move on to this delicious drink recipe ..
