Purple Dragon

This dragon fruit cocktail was made for sundowners one afternoon as we sat at anchor in Telaga, Langkawi. Having just returned from duty-free shopping (they have the cheapest alcohol), I decided to make cocktails using the tropical fruit I had handy ,and a few of the many differing alcoholic beverages we bought!

Purple Dragon Cocktail!, vodka, tequilla, dragon fruit, cointreau, lime

Anyhow, this is what I did to make two cocktails….

Ingredients

2 shots vodka
2 shots tequila
2 shots cointreau
1 dragonfruit
Juice of one lime
Lime slices for garnish
Ice

In a blender I blended the flesh of a peeled red dragon fruit with ice, vodka, tequila, cointreau and the juice of one lime, and garnished with sliced lime.

Delicious!

Caipiroska

I have been searching everywhere in Batam for limes. I finally found some today. I can’t wait to have a nice fresh caipiroska! In Bali and on other islands while cruising Indonesia I have, usually, had no trouble finding fresh limes and our favourite lime flavoured treat is undoubtedly the CAIPIROSKA!

Lime, vodka ice
Capiroska

All I do is…

Wash and quarter two limes, place them in a cocktail glass with two teaspoons of brown sugar and, using a muddler, I squash the be-jesus out of them. I add two shots of vodka (naughty) and some ice. Voila! Ready to drink.

Refreshing, full of Vitamin C and a good use of local ingredients!
