An exotic fruit like the Dragonfruit is amazing, but what kind of cocktails can we make with it? A margarita of course!
What is a Dragonfruit? The dragonfruit is a type of fruit that comes from special kinds of cacti. The flesh on this fruit sometimes has a pink flesh, but also can have a white flesh as well. Despite the inside coloring they both taste very similar. My impression on this fruit is that it has a very light honeydew type of taste too it. Very smooth flavor.
The Dragonfruit mixes very well with the slightly smokiness of a good Tequila. Overall this drink features the great traits of all the ingredients in there. I would do it again for sure, just make sure you don’t use anything that stains easily. These bad boys will stain.
