Dragonfruit Marti-NO

It’s no secret that mocktails are seriously trending. For those who would rather forgo the alcohol yet still want the fun of a mixed-up beverage, Blue Sky’s Tyler Lewis shares with TABLE readers a variety of delectable mocktails, including the following Dragonfruit Marti-NO. This martini mocktail utilizes dragonfruit — which is high in fiber, a good source of magnesium, and is packed with nutrients — resulting in a drink that not only tastes good but is also good for you.
