Lychee Drink - Beverage from Thailand

This lychee beverage, a product of Thailand, cost about a dollar.

Lychee is a fruit grown on trees in parts of Asia. "The lychee fruit is about 1½ to 2 inches in size, oval to rounded heart shaped and the bumpy skin is red in color. Once you peel the skin off, the crisp juicy flesh of a lychee fruit is white or pinkish, translucent and glossy like the consistency of a grape, but the taste is sweeter. Lychees have a sub acid sweet taste and have a wonderful freshness to them."

I didn't bother to get the kids to try it b/c I pretty much know what they would say - "I don't like it." They may or may not take a sip before determining the taste - they just know in their soul that an unusual fruit drink will taste nasty.

I liked it. It was very fragrant and fruity and didn't have a nectar-ish consistency.
