THAI TIKI TORCH

The "Thai Tiki Torch" is next in the country themed cocktail line. I wanted to feature dragon fruit in a drink, and I wanted to make it the vessel as well.

For the drink:

-1 1/2 oz Batavia Arrack (Batavia Arrack van Oosten)

-1/2 oz dark rum (George Bowman)

-3 oz pineapple juice

-1/2 dragon fruit

-1/2 oz simple syrup

-1 oz coconut cream

-1 dash orange bitters

-1 dash angostura bitters


Garnish:

Dragon fruit

Tiki umbrella


Glassware:

Dragon fruit


Cut a dragon fruit in half. Reserve half and with the other half scoop out the inside, putting it in your cocktail shaker. Combine the remaining drink ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Fill three-quarters with ice and shake for 15-20 seconds. Pour into your glass through a Hawthorne and fine mesh strainer. Garnish.
