Dragon Fruit Limeade Cocktail

Dragon fruit Limeade Recipe www.abeautifulmess.comThere are two things that all of my springtime cocktails seem to call for… fresh fruit and citrus! This next drink has both. 🙂Dragon fruit (tastes like a kiwi!)Dragon fruit is both beautiful and tasty. I had put off trying it for quite a while, because I heard some of my friends say it was kinda gross. That wasn't my experience, though. To me, it tasted like a half sweet kiwi. I loved that it was half sweet, because that makes it the perfect fruit to soak in a cocktail!Dragon fruit Limeade Recipe www.abeautifulmess.com Dragon fruit Limeade Recipe www.abeautifulmess.com  Dragon Fruit Limeade Cocktail, serves one.

  • Pretty! I love the black specks (aka seeds) in the dragonfruit. It makes the drink look as good as i’m sure it tastes. thanks!

  • I tried dragon fruit because it looked interesting. Once in a while I pick a random fruit I have not had before. Let’s just say I wasn’t blown away. It reminded me of a kiwi but with 10% of the flavour. I didn’t write it off completely but next time I think I have to mix it with other, sweeter fruit

  • I’m a recent convert to dragon fruit, if you can find the ones that are bright red on the inside they taste much nicer than the other varieties, or so I’ve heard. I actually discovered this week there is a dragon fruit plant growing in my garden : )

  • I’ve never tried dragonfruit even though its at my local grocery store, but this drink looks so refreshing – will have to try!


  • This looks super yummy!! Looking forward to trying it 😉

  • I’ve heard of a dragon fruit but I guess I’ve never SEEN one before because that fruit is crazy looking!!


  • I’ve never tried dragon fruit, intrigued by this cocktail


  • This looks absolutely amazing! I recently tried to make a prickly pear cocktail, but it didn’t turn out that great. I went back to my tried and true summer cocktail. I call it a lakeside cooler. It has OJ, cranberry juice, margarita mix, rum, and ginger ale. I just posted the recipe on my blog. http://www.thistooisfoundhere.blogspot.com/2013/05/lakeside-cooler-recipe.html

  • Now that I think about it, I can’t remember even trying dragon fruit! Now I’ll have to try this. Thanks

  • This looks amazing! My favorite warm weather drink is an orange margarita using a muddled orange. So yummy! Bring on the sunshine so I can bring out these drinks 😉

  • definitely going to make this, this summer!! oh my, can’t wait for deck time with some cocktails… wow. I tried dragon fruit for the first time earlier this year, and LOVED it. I described it as having a mild kiwi taste, with the texture of a watermelon. I love the mellow flavour. Triple sec is one of my favourite liquors (hello cosmos!), so I can see this being right up my alley. Great recipe!! xo

  • So gorgeous! Definitely one to try!

  • What a beautiful looking fruit!! I’m gonna buy one and try it;)

  • Okay, I have to ask… do you style your nail color according to what you are photographing that day? If so, I think you do a great job! 😉

    So I don’t do whiskey, but I would substitute tequila in a heart beat. Looks delish!

  • Looks yummy! When I saw the first picture, it looked like there were little dice in the glass, haha 🙂

  • Dragon Fruit-weirdest thing ever! I saw it for the first time last year. And I’m 48!

  • I have never tried dragon fruit before, but i’m really curious how it tastes! The cocktail looks amazing.


  • I grew up in Cambodia,where we could get super fresh dragon fruit everyday. I love it! My family always describes the taste as a mix between an apple and a watermelon. The dragonfruit that can be bought in the US is small and bland compared to the fresh stuff but still yummy!

  • It really look delicious. I like dragon fruit. Unfortunately I’m allergic to limes 🙁

  • looks beyond delicious, and the straw brings it all home! cute post 🙂

  • I love dragon fruit lemonade. I had it for the first time in southern Mexico and it was so refreshing. I’m going to have to try the cocktail version. Can’t wait!

  • This looks delicious! I recently got a compact blender so my newest obsession is making blended fresh fruit cocktails. My fave so far is a strawberry pineapple blend with Malibu coconut rum. Super refreshing!!

  • I love dragonfruit.

    If you want great presentation, scoop out the middle, chop it up, drizzle with honey and the serve it in the pink shell. It looks great for dessert. I guess you could also soak the pieces in the cocktail before serving – I bet boozy dragonfruit would taste awesome!
