  • 300 g (10½ oz) peeled and seeded fresh lychees
  • 70 ml (2⅔ fl oz) sugar syrup
  • 2.5 g (1/12 oz) agar agar


Place the lychees and sugar syrup in an upright blender and blend until smooth. Set aside 100 ml ( fl oz) for the lychee glass.

Transfer the remaining lychee liquid to a saucepan, add the agar agar, bring to the boil and cook for 2 minutes. Transfer to a metal bowl and chill over ice until firmly set. Return to the blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.

This can be made 1 day in advance and stored in the fridge in an airtight container.
