This Dragon Fruit Martini is easy to make and beautiful to serve! Your guests will be surprised and delighted by this refreshing cocktail, and the marvelous-looking dragon fruit also makes a great conversation starter!

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 ripe dragon fruit - should be soft enough to indent skin slightly with your thumb
  • 1/3 cup vodka
  • 1 Tbsp. freshly-squeezed lime juice
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp. white sugar, to taste
  • 2-3 ice cubes
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk (may be omitted - see note below*)
  • garnishes: dragon fruit wedge, slice of lime or star fruit
PREPARATION
  • Prepare your dragon fruit by scooping out all of the flesh 
  • Place dragon fruit flesh in blender or food processor. Add all other ingredients and blitz 20 to 30 seconds on high speed.
  • Taste-test for desired strength and sweetness, adding more vodka if not strong enough, or more sugar if you'd prefer it sweeter (note that the sweetness will also depend on the ripeness of your dragon fruit - the riper, the sweeter it will taste). If too sweet for your taste, add another squeeze of lime juice. If too strong for your liking, add more coconut milk.
  • Pour out into martini glasses and garnish with your choice of garnishes. ENJOY!Dragon fruit martini recipe - 1
