INDONESIAN INLET

In the "Indonesian Inlet," I wanted to feature star fruit (carambola). These unique fruit may originate from Indonesia. The peanut butter, common in Indonesian food, contributed to the odd, but refreshing flavor. This blended cocktail is funky and divided Sarah and I, with her disliking it, while I loved it. Be warned!
