The most dazzling drink in all the land! This dragonfruit cocktail is a simple vodka soda leveled up to have a fun, vibrant, youthful, tropical vibe. Muddling a small chunk of dragonfruit into your drink is the best bartending trip of the year. Vegan drinks, here we come!


  • 1 tablespoon of  muddled pink dragonfruit (fresh or frozen and thawed)
  • Ice, to taste
  • 1 shot of vodka, or more to taste (I used Koskenkorva)
  • Fill glass with your favorite clear sparkling soda
  • Squeeze of lime juice
  • Lime slices, for garnish (optional)
  • Fresh blackberries, for garnish (optional)
  • Sprig of mint, for garnish (optional)


  • In a small bowl, mortar and pestle, or directly in your cocktail glass, muddle approximately 1 tablespoon of frozen or fresh pink dragonfruit. If you muddled in a separate bowl, add the mashed dragonfruit to your cocktail glass.
  • Add ice, vodka, soda, a squeeze of fresh lime, and mix with a drink stirrer.
  • Garnish with fresh blackberries, lime slices, and a sprig of mint.


There are two main varieties of dragonfruit—one has pink flesh and the other has white flesh—but both have the same pink exterior. You will need the kind with the pink flesh inside to make this cocktail.

In the photos, you’ll see I made a sugar rim, which you’re also welcome to do! I simply dipped the rim of the glass in water and then dipped it into some granulated sugar.
