Far East Dragon
The traditional idea of a dragon is always green, which is why this epic combination of Midori, lychee liqueur and soju is so perfect for this annual calendar event. This dragon-based drink actually celebrates a different version of the mythical creature – one that is famous throughout far-eastern culture. Who knows if St George would have been able to defeat that dragon?!
Whether you are celebrating with friends this year, or the pandemic is forcing you to drink alone, we think you should try at least one dragon-themed cocktail this April 23rd. It would be unpatriotic not to!
