A Rambutan Martini Recipe — I’m calling it a Rambutini. Fun!
What is a rambutan, you ask? Have you ever seen one? Tried one?
I’d seen these jewels before, but didn’t know their name until last week when I was fortunate enough to learn about this super cool, exotic fruit from Melissa’s Produce.
A rambutan is a very beautiful and unique looking fruit that’s closely related to a lychee. And while its delicious taste is similar to a lychee, it’s slightly firmer in texture and a bit less sweet — though still quite sweet! It’s somewhat like an extra sweet grape, without the skin and a with a pit in the center.
This is a delightful tropical cocktail to serve at your next dinner party!
And speaking of dinner parties. . . . I had a small one last night and I’m hoping I can inspire you to recreate it this weekend. Almost every day this week, I’ll be sharing components of the entrée, so you can make it for your guests.
And the entrée is. . . . Muscato Grape-Shallot Pork Chops with Mashed Okinawan Sweet Potato and Citrus Steamed Asparagus.
Who’s excited? Okay, excellent — but let’s start with a cocktail, shall we?
