*Fresh dragon fruit can be used. Dice into cubes and freeze ahead of time. I used the frozen pink dragon fruit which is sold in the freezer section of Coles. The pink dragon fruit gives the cocktail it's intense colour.
Cut into this baked Brie and the warm cheese just oozes onto the platter. Scoop it up and smear onto your favourite crackers. The sweetness of the plum honey, and the crunch of the pistachio's is a perfect mix paired with your favourite wine and antipasto ingredients.
A sweeter you Manuka Honey with Plum has the taste of Christmas. The blend of the plum honey with the richness of the fruits and alcohol makes these fruit mince pies the perfect Christmas treat.
