Expert Tips

Since lychees have a clear white color, I use a cocktail shaker to avoid mint and lime debris in the drink. That helps me get a nice and clean white drink. However, you can make it directly in the glass as any regular mojito.

As a good South Floridian, I love making mojitos. It’s a very refreshing drink; light, minty and perfect for a summer day. I also like to experiment with this drink, and so far I’ve made two great discoveries. My rhubarb mojito is always a star when we have our friends over, so I decided to take it to the next level and invented the lychee mojito. A lot of my friends and neighbors have lychee tress in their backyard so I suddenly found myself with more than 2 pounds of these lovely fruits in my fridge.

Directions

  • 1 To make the simple syrup: Add the lychees, water and confection sugar in a pot and bring to boil for 10 minutes.
  • 2 You will usually make simple syrup with regular sugar, as confection sugar will make your syrup look murky. In this case, I want the syrup to look murky to enhance the white milky color of the main ingredient.
  • 3 Drain into a jar or pot and reserve in the fridge.
  • 4 To make the drink: Cut the limes in quarters and place them in a cocktail shaker with the mint leaves. Give them a quick muddle.
  • 5 Add all the ingredients but the club soda to the shaker, shake vigorously for two minutes, strain the liquid into a glass half full with ice. Add the club soda.
  • 6 Garnish with lychees, lime and mint leaves.
  • 7 Enjoy!
