Background

Much as we enjoy warm and spicy dishes, quenching our thirst with cold drinks or desserts is also the norm. It is easy to love this drink because of the sweetness of the lychees. That is why they are widely used to make all sorts of desserts. In Germany, lychee is somehow associated with Asia and is often served as a dessert at the end of a typical westernized Asian buffet.

I, on the other hand, have fond memories of this drink being one of my favourites. I love it for its refreshing sweetness. Ever since I came to Germany, I got a little influenced by the locals adding soda water to their drinks (e.g. juices). Admittedly, it does make the drink taste good, though.

I am definitely sure that you are going to like this drink especially when it is enjoyed under the blazing hot sun. Prepare this for a barbecue, picnic or on a day at the beach.

Lychee Soda is also known as: Air Laici Soda
