Think Ahead & Helpful Hints

  • This can be assembled hours before service but just add the strawberries at the end otherwise they may get too mushy.
  • Make the syrup the day before and when cooled, strain and keep in a screw-top jar in the fridge.
  • If you don’t want to use lychees, then use only apple juice.
  • Add whatever fruits you like, I don’t add passionfruit as I don’t like the texture of the seeds.
