Dragon Fruit Simple Syrup
This bright pink simple syrup is flavored with frozen dragon fruit. Add brilliant color and a mild melon flavor to cocktails, lemonades, and iced teas.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup hot water (does not need to be boiling)
- 100 grams frozen pink dragon fruit (about 1/2 cup)
Combine the sugar, hot water, and frozen dragon fruit in a heatproof jar or other container. Stir to help thaw the fruit and dissolve the sugar.
Allow the mixture to sit for a few minutes, until all of the fruit has thawed and the sugar has dissolved. Use a fine mesh strainer to strain out the seeds and any excess pulp.
Store any leftover syrup in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
