The star fruit, or carambola, is the "star" of this beverage and tastes like a blend of apple, pear, and citrus fruits. The entire fruit is edible. Here, it is pureed and then strained to create a delicious, fragrant juice.
1/2 cup lemon-lime-flavored sparkling water, chilled
Carambola slices (optional)
How to Make It
Place pineapple juice and carambola slices in a blender; process until smooth. Pour mixture through a sieve into a pitcher to measure 2 cups. Discard solids. Stir in ginger syrup and lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate 45 minutes or until thoroughly chilled.
Fill each of 2 glasses with 1 cup crushed ice. Pour star fruit mixture over ice. Add 1/4 cup sparkling water to each glass. Garnish with carambola slices, if desired.
