Instructions
  1. Remove dragon fruit skin and dice.

  3. Place mint in a thick bottomed glass. Add brown sugar if necessary.
  4. Muddling is the process of gently pressing to release flavor from herbs. You can use stone or wood or plastic or steel or rubber muddler. What ever you have at your home will work. A thin rolling pin will do too.
  5. Gently muddle mint leaves to release flavor and aroma.
  6. Add dragon fruit juice. Add vodka or ginger ale depending on your choice.
  7. Serve with your favorite snacks.
