"That is the magic of floral smells . . . when you taste them, the flavor still eludes you, as if you are eating a piece of a place that might not exist, or a memory of something that never really happened..."
—Diana Henry, Crazy Water Pickled Lemons.
8 lychees, peeled
1 tsp rosewater
2-3 ice cubes
1 tsp grenadin
Blend the lychees with the rosewater and ice. Pour in grenadine.
- Grenadine is a sweet, deep red, pomegranate-flavored syrup used to color and flavor drinks and desserts. Originally, grenadine was made from pomegranates grown on the island of Grenada in the Caribbean. Now other fruit-juice concentrates are also used to make the syrup.
