#DOTW: Red Dragon

Summer drinks mean refreshing drinks. Something to cool you down in the summer evenings. Fruits are paramount in this. A little sweet, a little sour, lots of ice, that’s what I think of when I dream of sitting on a deck or in a backyard, sipping on something for us that are 21 and over. I love this one, the raspberries are everything, I can’t see anyone disliking this cocktail! Have some with me…..

What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 oz Bacardi Dragonberry Rum
  • 1 oz Triple Sec
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
  • 2 oz Sprite
  • fresh raspberries
  • fresh mint leaves
  • lime slices

On the bottom of a tall glass muddle 3 – 5 raspberries and 2 – 3 mint leaves. Add the rum, Triple Sec, simple syrup, and lime juice and stir. Add ice, then top off with Sprite. Garnish with raspberries, lime slice and/or mint leaves.

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!
