  • High-Speed Blender

  • 40 Lychees Peeled & Pitted
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 8 tsp Granulated White Sugar Or Adjust According To Your Taste
  • 8 Cups Of Cold Water
  • Lime Slices
  • Fresh Mint Leaves
  • Few Lychee Slices
  • Few Ice Cubes For Serving


  • In a high-speed blender, add the lychees, lemon juice and sugars well.
  • Blend everything together to get a fine liquid consistency. But if you prefer, you can leave it slightly chunky or just make a coarse lychee paste.
  • Now, transfer this lychee paste into a large pitcher. Add the lime slices, mint leaves and water into the pitcher and give it a nice stir.
  • Check if the sugar and lime juice are perfect or else some more if required.
  • Next, add a few ice cubes into the serving glasses and then pour in the lychee lemonade.
  • Garnish with lime slices and mint leaves. Serve right away!


  • If you picked up fresh lychee fruits to make lemonade, peel off the skin and remove the pits. You may also increase or decrease the number of lychees depending on how fleshy they are. 
  • And if fresh lychees are not available, you can use frozen lychees, canned lychees or canned lychee juice. 
  • If you want your lychee lemonade to be smooth, then strain it using a fine mesh strainer. 
  • Instead of using water, you can even use club soda or sparkling water to make a frizzy version. 
  • You can use natural sweeteners such as agave syrup, maple syrup or honey.

This refreshing lychee drink is best to be consumed immediately after it is served to enjoy its flavours & freshness. But if you want, it can be stored in the refrigerator for a maximum of 24 hours. Make sure to shake it up before serving, because the lychees tend to sit down at the bottom of the jar.

It’s perfect for making mocktails, cocktails or lemonade.
