I love trying new concoctions in the kitchen. I’ve decided to start making a few new food and drink recipes to share with all of you here. Why not start with a champagne cocktail? Pitaya Plus sent us some samples of their dragon fruit smoothie packs and I thought these would be a fun flavor to create a cocktail from. This super easy and refreshing dragon fruit champagne cocktail recipe is below!
But first, I want to share about my new blog plans. I’ve had a shift in my regular workload which has given me a little more time to work on the blog. I’m not going to go into all of the details but its about time I start pursuing this thing a little more and see where it takes me. So look out for more recipes, party fun, tips from our travels and more on our favorite spots in San Diego to grab a bite.
On to the cocktail… This dragon fruit champagne cocktail is super easy to make. All you need is dragon fruit smoothie packs, fresh lime juice, mint and champagne. I used brut so you could really taste the flavor of the dragon fruit and lime.
The smoothie packs are pretty solid when you take them out of the freezer so I recommend putting them in a water bath to let them thaw out a bit. About 5-10 minutes in a tub of water should work. Then cut open the package and scoop out one tablespoon into the bottom of your glass. I used short wine glasses but any glass will do.
Then pour the champagne right on top of the dragon fruit. Squeeze a bit of lime into each cup and garnish with mint. If you want more of a mint flavor you can muddle it in. I liked the taste of the dragon fruit with the lime and just a hint of mint. And there you have it! A simple, yet pretty cocktail for any occasion!
I love the bright pink against the lime green colors. It really makes the drinks pop. These would be perfect for a spring or summer afternoon with the ladies.
