(I’m not very good at naming my drinks -_- )
Have you tried mocktails or cocktails with Lychee syrups? Does (Virgin) Lychee Mojito, Lychee Magarita etc. ring a bell? Anything with lychees also gives me a really tropical feel…
So… I want to have a cool, refreshing and healthy drink that makes me feel like I am enjoying the sea breeze under a coconut tree with warm sun rays above me and soft sand under my feet.
OK. A little overboard. Back to reality.
A typical Lychee Mojito consists of Lychee Syrup, Lime and Mint leaves. I want to try recreate this with a healthy approach (No rum, sorry). I mentioned previously in Lychee Ginger Zing that Lychees seem to go well with citrusy fruits. For this blend, I used fresh Orange juice as the liquid base and included some cucumbers to enhance the refreshing experience.
Here are the ingredients I used :
5 heads x Baby Bok Choy
Approx 8 x Lychees (peeled & pitted)
1 x Orange (juiced)
2 x Baby cucumbers
A few mint leaves
-Serves about 3 cups-
This is a very simple recipe that everyone should try. There’s not much preparation work except for some washing and cutting. Mint leaves are also quite commonly found in local supermarkets.
Now, I present you this delicious drink !
Writing this post reminds me how much I enjoy this drink! I love how uplifting it is, especially great for hot summer days and of course, our Singapore weather.
Do you have a potted mint plant? Is it difficult to maintain? Let me know in the comments below 🙂
Chug it !
