Lychee juice or syrup in Minneapolis?
I've been trying to find Lychee juice or syrup in Minneapolis for a while. I've tried a lot of the Asian grocery stores, Byerly's, Kowalski's, Lake winds and some other stores without any luck. I know I can get this online but I wanted to see if I can find this locally first. Any help with this is greatly appreciated as I don't want to keep paying close to $10 for good Lychee martinis :)
I found lychee juice this weekend! I happened to be at TBS Mart (an Indian store) and saw the lychee juice there. Here is the address;

Good luck with your lychee cocktails - they are the perfect drink on a summer day (or any other day for that matter :)
I know the Indian market/restaurant Curry Up in Maple Grove sells a bottled Lychee drink because I bought a small bottle of it there once just to try it. I don't remember what % juice it had or how much sugar was added, but I remember it being fairly sweet. You could call them up and ask. http://www.curryupfoods.com/
It may be at some of the Indian markets on Central but I don't know.
Thank you for the recommendation. I will definitely call Unite Noodles.
Although I can use syrup from the canned lychees or lychee drinks (mostly canned drinks) I would like to stay away from these since they have a higher sugar concentrate and doesn't have the nice subtle lychee taste I'm looking for.
re: bob s
United Noodles definitely has Lychee drinks - not sure, however, whether they're mostly/all lychee juice or just "juice drinks" with other ingredients.
They also have canned lychees - perhaps you could use the syrup from the can, with the lychees as garnish?
