  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1-2 cups fresh dragon fruit peeled
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2-3 cups cold water
  • Optional Garnishes: Extra dragonfruit lemon wedges and mint


  • Prepare a simple syrup by whisking 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar together over medium heat until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and cool completely.
  • Place the prepared dragon fruit in a blender and pulse until desired consistency is reached.
  • Add the cold water, lemon juice and simple syrup to the blender and pulse just until combined, being careful not to overmix.
  • Pour over ice and enjoy!


Expert Tips:
  • Adjust the color by adding more of less of the pink flesh.
  • Use frozen dragonfruit if you don't have fresh on hand.
  • Allow the simple syrup to cool before adding it to the rest of the recipe.
  • Use the pulse option on your blender rather than the blend setting for more texture control.
