Makes 2 glasses
1/2 of a large purple dragon fruit (pitaya)
2 tbsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice
8 mint leaves
1 can of soda water
1 shot of rum (optional, but highly recommended)
1. Peel, and cut the dragon fruit into chunks, and place in blender. Add lemon juice, and blend.
2. Add mint leaves to blender and blend for just a second so there are parts of the leaves still visible in the drink.
3. Add half a shot of rum each into two glasses with your preferred number of ice cubes. Then fill both glasses halfway with the blended mix. Top off with soda water (but be careful since dragon fruit and carbonated drinks have a bit of an explosive reaction).
4. Garnish with mint leaves and a slice of lemon, and drink until you're purple in the face!
