|This is something my mum whips up each time we have large family gatherings - like during `Eid (Hari Raya) or family reunions. There are no exact measurements - it should be done according to your taste.
2 cans of longans, with the syrup
Red/Rose syrup, to taste
1 to 2 Lemons, sliced into rounds
Sprite or 7-Up (1 litre approx)
Lots of ice
Put longans and its syrup into your punch bowl. Squeeze the lemon rounds slightly as you add them into the bowl so as to give the drink a slightly lemony taste. Add the red syrup and give the whole thing a good stir. Just before guests arrive, add Sprite/7-Up, ice and water.
This drink looks really nice - a refreshing pink with bright yellow lemon slices floating on it. Those who prefer a more lemony taste can add more lemons or even more Sprite/7-Up. I prefer more longans!
Smile! It's charity!
