drink: lychee slush cocktail

In the mood for a tasty & exotic treat, friends? Why not celebrate the start of the weekend with a refreshing lychee drink you can make at home in just a matter of minutes. The combination of lychee and lime is divine! This is one of my favourite summertime cocktails.

Lychee slush

- 1/2 540 mL can lychees

- 2/3 cup lychee syrup

- 3/4 cup ginger ale

- 1/2 cup apple juice

- 1/3 cup lychee liqueur such as Soho (or plain vodka)

- 2 tbsp lime juice

- 2 cups ice

- lime wedges and raspberries for garnish


1. Puree 1/2 540-mL can lychees with 2/3 cup lychee syrup (from can), 3/4 cup ginger ale, 1/2 cup apple juice, 1/3 cup lychee liqueur (or plain vodka) and 2 tbsp lime juice in a blender until smooth.

2. Add 2 cups ice. Crush until slushy. Garnish with lime wedges and fresh raspberries. Serves 6.

Pregnant ladies can still indulge - just leave out the spirits and add an equivalent amount of ginger ale.

Živjeli to the weekend!


p.s. I also like this simple version from Martha Stewart.


  1. Sounds wonderful! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love how you included the preggo version too :)

  3. Ha Ha I'm laughing right now because I'm looking at the Chatelaine Holiday 100+ recipes book and there it is!! The same Lychee Slush recipe! Its good to know that its worth buying a bottle of liqueur to try a new drink! Speaking of buying, where did you purchase yours? I live in Sherwood Park. :)

    1. I am a huge fan of Chatelaine recipes (and the magazine). (:

      We buy our spirits from Sherbrooke Liquor Store - the customer service is great and they have Edmonton's largest beer selection.


Yes, please! Comments make me happy, but please keep them kind. That means you anonymous!
