Background

Much as we enjoy hot 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 perhaps the reason they are widely used to make a wide variety of desserts. In Germany, lychees are somehow associated with Asia and are often served as a dessert at the end of a typical westernized Asian buffet.

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

I am definitely sure that you are going to like this drink especially on a warm and humid day. Prepare it for barbecues, picnics or for a day at the beach.

Lychee Soda is also known as: Air Laici Soda
