A few months ago I received a box of fun produce from Melissa’s Produce.   Inside the box were plenty of fruits I’ve seen before but many that I’ve never worked with so I was excited to give them a try.  I made cupcakes with one fruit and a cocktail with another but I was dying to try make yet another cocktail.

I really like having fun mixing up new cocktails.  With New Year’s Eve right around the corner I wanted something that was bright, festive, and really fun.  I decided to use the dragon fruit because I love that the outside is such a gorgeous bright pink but the inside is white with black speckles.  It’s really a stunning fruit.

It only takes a few ingredients to make a tasty Dragon Fruit Margarita!

I had several different ideas for cocktails but at the end of the day I thought a dragon fruit margarita would be perfect.  The dragon fruit is fairly mild but a little bit sweet so I knew it would stand up well to the tart lime juice.  I first thought I’d make a frozen margarita but then, who wants a frozen cocktail when it’s freezing outside?  So I went with a margarita on the rocks.

After I blended this cocktail together I really liked the look of it.  It was mostly white with bits of black throughout and it had a bit of foam on the top of it.  I garnished it with a simple lime slice and dragon fruit slice and put a pink straw in it to match the fruit.   I took a sip and was super pleased.   It was sweet and tart and had all the traditional flavors of a margarita but with a hint of the tropics.  It’s perfect for a holiday party or for just sipping on during a dinner party.
