If you are looking for a fun, non-alcoholic drink for the spring and summer, then this is it! When I received my produce box from Melissa's for this event, tucked away inside were some beautiful yellow dragonfruit!
I created a beautiful drink to showcase this amazing fruit and it makes this drink FIRE!
How to Make this Refreshing Non-Alcoholic Drink
The base of this drink is green tea, freshly brewed and then cooled down. Then it gets mixed with mashed dragon fruit that has been strained to remove the seeds and a sweetener like honey or maple syrup.
But here is what really makes this drink sing — Fleur De Sal and Crushed Pink Peppercorns.
Take the Fleur De Sel (flaky sea salt) and rim the glasses before putting any of the drink inside. I used a little honey to make the edges sticky and then coated them with the flaky sea salt from Selefina Spices.
Once you pour the drink, top it with some freshly crushed pink peppercorns. Trust me when I say that this little tidbit is going to make your drink SING!
For fun ice cubes to add to your drink, scoop a few balls out of the dragon fruit with a melon baller. Then, freeze them. Throw them in your drink right before serving.
