Pink dragon sipper
Turning the striking looking dragonfruit into a delightfully refreshing beverage seems a great way to beat the heat and to take advantage of the fruit's short season. If there's a reason to leave the blender out on the counter during the summer, this is it. Add rum or vodka after the kids hit the hay.
- Slice the dragonfruit in half. With a large spoon, scoop out the flesh into a food processor or blender. Process until smooth.
- Option: Extract the seeds using a spoon to push the dragonfruit flesh through a fine mesh strainer. Discard seeds. Add the juice back to the blender.
- Add lime juice, sparkling water and sugar to the blender. Pulse until relatively smooth. Add sugar, if needed.
- Fill four glasses with ice. Evenly divided the drink. Enjoy immediately.
