Ah, the Dragonberry Warrior! Sounds like the superhero of drinks, doesn’t it? It’s the kind of drink that wears a cape in my imagination. But why “warrior,” you ask? Well, it's not because it's training to save the world (although who knows, right?). It's because it bravely brings together flavors that many wouldn’t dare to. Think about it: dragonberry – the wild cousin of the strawberry – packs a bold punch. It's like the fun friend who convinces you to dance on tables or take an impromptu road trip. Now, when you pair this fearless flavor with some other mixers, you get an epic party in a glass! Because, let's face it, while our Dragonberry Warrior can stand alone, it loves good company. Ready to find out what makes this drink and its chosen companions the ultimate squad? Let’s dive in!


Juice of half a lime
2 oz white rum
Fresh dragon fruit slices for garnish
Ice cubes
Fresh mint leaves

1- Start by chilling your cocktail glass to ensure your drink stays cooler for longer. You can do this by filling it with ice water and letting it sit for a minute or two. Then, discard the ice water.
2- In a cocktail shaker, add the ice cubes.
3- Pour in the white rum and the freshly squeezed juice of half a lime.
4- Gently shake until the mixture is well-chilled.
5- Pour the DRAGONBERRY WARRIOR into the shaker. Give it a gentle stir to mix with the rum and lime, being careful not to overdo it and lose the soda's fizz.
6- Strain the concoction into your chilled cocktail glass.
7- Garnish with a slice of fresh dragon fruit and a sprig of mint.

Optional: For added flair, slap the mint sprig between your palms before adding. This releases the oils, making the aroma more pronounced.
Sit back, sip, and embrace the euphoric blend of the DRAGONBERRY WARRIOR!


Take a sip of COCONUT DELIGHT and, bam! It’s like your boss’ emails, the laundry, and that pile of dishes vanished. Suddenly, you’re on a beach, and there's not a worry in sight. But here's the twist: pour in some pineapple juice, and this drink gets its groove on. Add a dash of light rum—or go coconut rum if you're feeling extra—and the party in your glass just leveled up. Now, the coconut's sweetness and pineapple's tang aren't just vibing; they're in full-on celebration mode. And that wedge of fresh pineapple? Consider it the cherry on top of this sip-worthy fiesta. With COCONUT DELIGHT in hand, who needs a tropical getaway? You're already there, one sip at a time. Ready for a sip-cation?

Take a gulp of MOJITO MADNESS and suddenly, you're not just chilling in your living room. You've been teleported straight to Havana! The sizzle of salsa, the swaying dancers, and—hold on, is that the spirited dance of lime and mint on your palate?

2 lime wedges
2 teaspoons of sugar (or to taste)
Soda water (optional, if you prefer a milder taste)

7- Give the cocktail one last gentle stir to ensure everything's mixed.
8- Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint and a lime wheel.
9- Take a moment to appreciate the aroma, then dive into the fiesta of flavors waiting for you!

Mango Colada Serenade

Grab a glass filled with MANGO COLADA and instantly, it's like you've teleported to a hammock on a serene beach, the horizon painted in golds and purples. As you take a sip, you can almost hear the sweet notes of mango, the lead vocalist in this tropical ensemble, with that dash of coconut rum giving it a distinctive kick. The coconut cream, smooth and creamy, acts like the bass guitar, underlining every other flavor. Then, pineapple juice joins the party, adding its zesty rhythm to the mix, while the crushed ice chills the vibe, making sure everything's cool and groovy. A garnish of fresh mango slices and a splash of grenadine are like the pyrotechnics at a rock show, making everything pop, while the pineapple leaf or wedge sits pretty, waving at the crowd.
