This Raspberry Lychee Fizz is a sparkling, fruity drink with floral notes. It features blended fresh raspberries and lychees, homemade lychee syrup topped with fizzy water.
There's nothing like a fruity, fizzy drink to quench that summertime thirst.
This Raspberry Lychee Fizz is one of my new favourites and features a Homemade Lychee Syrup.
Why you'll love this drink
It's made with fresh raspberries and lychees, which makes it the perfect summertime drink.
You can change the type of berries and it will taste just as good.
You can whip up this drink easily in a matter of minutes.
Ingredients you'll need
- fresh raspberries: rinsed and drained; you could use frozen in place of fresh
- fresh lychees: peeled; you can use canned lychees, drained
- sparkling/soda water: or carbonated water
- homemade lychee syrup: I highly recommend making your own lychee syrup; you can use the ones that come from canned lychees if you're in a pinch, but it won't taste as good
Tools you'll need
- high-powered blender: to blend together the raspberries and lychees
How to make it
Blend the raspberries and lychee together in a blender, until smooth.
Pour 1-2 tablespoon of lychee syrup into a tall glass (or to taste).
Add 4 tablespoon of the raspberry-lychee puree to the glass.
Add ice cubes to the glass.
Top the glass off with sparkling water.
Stick in a straw, give it a stir and enjoy immediately.
For a floral variation, add ¼ teaspoon rose water.
Try substituting raspberries with blackberries or even strawberries.
Can I make the raspberry-lychee puree ahead of time?
Yes, you can make the blended raspberry-lychee ahead of time and store it in the fridge for 2-3 days.
Where can I find lychees?
You can find fresh lychees in Asian supermarkets, usually in the summer (around June to September).
Alternatively, you can find canned lychees year round in supermarkets.
