#DOTW: Red Dragon

The name of this drink should actually be You’re Welcome. Because it’s so good, you will have people thanking you. I most definitely was thankful when I first tried it. This recipe calls for Skyy Infusions Dragonfruit Vodka, but I opted to infuse unflavored Skyy vodka with a fresh dragonfruit. I also made my own Lychee syrup, but by all means just get a can of Lychees, you need them anyway for this cocktail.


What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 oz Skyy Infusions Dragonfruit (or infuse your own vodka like I did)
  • 1 oz pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 oz lychee syrup
  • 2 lychees

To infuse the vodka, cut a dragonfruit into small pieces, add them to a jar with plain vodka. Soak for up to 3 days.

To make the cocktail, add all liquid ingredients to a cocktail shaker, shake well and pour into Martini glass. Add 1 or 2 lychees.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
