- 1 (14 ounce) can lychees in heavy syrup

Place the sugar in a small saucepan with the lime zest and 1 ¼ cups water.
Heat gently until the sugar dissolves completely, then increase the heat and boil gently for about 7-8 minutes.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and leave on one side to cool the syrup.
Drain the lychees into a jug and pour the juice into the cooled lime syrup with the lime juice.
Place the fruit in a bowl and toss gently with the syrup. Chill for 1 hour before serving.
