Milk of the Dragon

Dragon fruit is a crazy-looking cactus that's indigenous to the Americas, but you can find it in most Asian supermarkets. To prepare, cut off the ends of the fruit and slice off the thick skin. Cube fruit. Although the skin of the dragon fruit is insanely colorful, the fruit is more mild with a bit of sweetness. Think of it as an alcoholic smoothie where the gin is the star.
