Lychees and ginger ice

  • 10 minutes, freezing time: overnight
  • 4
Lychees and ginger ice


  • ½ cup sweet white wine, boiling
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 565-gram can lychees in syrup, chilled
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger


  1. Stir the boiling wine with the sugar until dissolved. Cool.
  2. Place wine syrup into a food processor with the lychees and syrup from the can, and ginger.
  3. Process for 2 minutes or until very smooth. Pour into a 3 cup-capacity, freezer-proof container and seal or cover.
  4. Freeze for 4 hours. Remove from the freezer and mash or pulse in a food processor to evenly blend the semi-frozen mix. Return to the freezer and freeze overnight or until firm and frozen.
  5. Run a spoon over the frozen mixture and place scoopfuls of the granite-like ice into glasses to serve. Try with sliced strawberries or other summer fruits of your choice if desired.
