Exotic. To my husband, this word means “food or drink that is served in an extremely minimum amount of quantity”. LOL.
To me, exotic means “a journey to the unknown”. That’s why I love pure adventure game, which by the way, has nothing to do with food whatsoever 😀
Anyhow, Meeta of What’s For Lunch Honey? is hosting this event called Mixology Monday, coming up to its 8th round already. So watch her blog for the round up.
When Meeta decided to chose Exotic as the theme, I suddenly remember the fruits I bought the other day. The unknown fruits.
In Indonesia these fruits are called “Terong Belanda”, which translates as “Dutch Eggplant”. Ha ha, doesn’t make any sense, I know. I don’t know what english or latin name for this fruit. The inside is like tomato. Watery, very tangy, and has little hard rock black seeds. So, anyone knows the english or latin name, please let me know?
Anyway, I turned it into a drink!
I have no exact recipe here, everything is all add-and-taste style. It’s a journey to the unknown, remember?
Slice the fruit in half, scoop all of the inside flesh and seeds, throw into a blender. You need about 5-6 fruits. Process until smooth. Add pineapple juice, ice cubes, and honey to taste. Process and taste. Add this-and-that to your liking. Soda will be great too, everything goes with soda. I wished I had some around.
I named it Red Mystery. Oooh, spooky..
Pour into your favorite glass. Play your favorite CD, because, hey, even a journey to the unknown will be nice with some familiar tune playing in your head.
