Dragon Fruit Martini

Dragon fruit is a type of cactus fruit that can be found in Asian markets and in your grocery store's exotic fruit section. Covered with magenta skin and dotted with acid-green scales, it's a beautiful sight. Inside, the mild flesh is flecked with tiny black seeds. We used the white variety, but the flesh can also be red. Buy extra fruit and cut it into pretty half-moons to garnish the rims of the glasses.
