The Dragon Instructions

The Dragon is a classic cocktail that packs a fiery punch. This vibrant red drink is perfect for those who enjoy a tangy and sweet flavor profile. It gets its name from the vibrant red color, reminiscent of a dragon's fiery breath.

This cocktail is a crowd-pleaser at parties and gatherings. It is both visually appealing and delicious, making it a favorite among cocktail enthusiasts.

To make The Dragon, start by gathering the necessary ingredients. The recipe calls for a combination of citrus vodka, raspberry liqueur, cranberry juice, and lime juice. These ingredients work together to create a balanced and refreshing cocktail.

Begin by filling a cocktail shaker with ice. Add 1.5 ounces of citrus vodka to the shaker. The citrus vodka adds a zesty and refreshing flavor to the cocktail. Next, add 1 ounce of raspberry liqueur to the shaker. The raspberry liqueur brings a tangy and sweet flavor, complementing the citrus vodka perfectly.

Pour in 2 ounces of cranberry juice. The cranberry juice adds a tartness that balances out the sweetness of the raspberry liqueur. Lastly, squeeze in the juice of half a lime. The lime juice adds a hint of acidity, enhancing the overall flavor profile of the cocktail.

Secure the lid of the shaker and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds. This ensures that all the ingredients are well-mixed and that the flavors meld together perfectly. Strain the cocktail into a chilled glass, preferably a martini glass. The vibrant red color of The Dragon will be on full display in a clear glass.

Garnish the cocktail with a lime wheel or a raspberry for an added touch of elegance. The garnish not only enhances the presentation of the cocktail but also adds a subtle citrus note or a burst of raspberry flavor, depending on your choice.

Now, grab your glass, take a sip, and let The Dragon's fiery flavors transport you to another world. Cheers!
