DRAGON FRUIT CAIPIROSKA

— 3 pieces of lime
— bar spoon of sugar
— 2.0 oz dragon fruit infused vodka
— 2-inch chunk of dragon fruit

Using a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon, lightly crush limes, dragon fruit, and sugar in a 16-once mixing glass or a cocktail shaker to release juice—press limes just firmly enough to release juice but not bitter oil from the peel. Stir until sugar dissolves. Add vodka.

Fill an old-fashioned glass halfway with cracked ice. Pour vodka mixture over ice, then pour entire mixture, including ice, back into mixing glass to gently mix the drink. Return to old-fashioned glass and garnish with a lime.
