Huang Pi Martini

Huang Pi Martini

It is never too early to prepare for the weekend or to get in the weekend spirit.

One of the best ways to get the weekend started is to make yourself a cold and delicious cocktail. The Huang Pi martini is a cold and crisp cocktail made with the Chinese yellow-skinned fruit called the Huang Pi, citrus flavoured vodka, soda water and ice all blended to make this tantalising refreshing summer drink. I even made a virgin one for the boys.

The Huang Pi fruit is in season now.  Huang Pi are lightly sweet with the essence of oranges, lemons, limes and a little sweet like white grapes. They are a lot of work to eat as you first have to remove the skin and it is only about the size of a grape. There are about 2-3 seeds inside of each and a little membrane that looks similar to an orange.

Huang Pi fruit has a very tropical flavour and exciting to the senses. If you can't your hands on this little Chinese fruit no worries. I would substitute half a lime, half and orange, a quarter of a grapefruit and a few white grapes for the Huang Pi. You can read more about the Huang Pi fruit and other exotic fruits here...

I am sorry I have been a bit delayed commenting on your websites and responding to your e-mails but I have been a tad bit busy. Please give a warm welcome to newest and most definitely smallest Bam's Kitchen follower.. Buddy!


Buddy is a whopping 0.72 kg of fun. He is a Yorkshire Terrier. Mr. Anonymous says he about the size of a 6 inch subway sandwich. I feel like we have a new toddler in the house. We are potty training, on a feeding schedule and have child proofed the house. We have even been doing some night shifts. This all seems quite odd, when you have teenagers living at home.

I think that is all the more reason to get this weekend started a little early. Get that blender out and let's have a little fun.

Huang Pi Martini

By HWC Magazine  , , , ,

July 17, 2013

The Huang Pi martini is a cold and crisp cocktail made with the Chinese yellow skinned fruit called the Huang Pi, citrus vodka, ice all blended to make this tantalising refreshing summer drink.

  • Cook: 15 mins
  • Yields: 2 Adults or 1 Hungry Teenager


Huang Pi Martini (Adults)

Huang Pi (Yellow Skinned Fruit) - 30 pieces (peeled, deseeded)(You can substitute half of lime, half an orange and 1/4 of a grapefruit and a handful of peeled white grapes)

Citrus Vodka - 2 shots (give or take) I used Absolut Citron lemon flavoured vodka as that is what I had, but you could just use plain straight up vodka)

ice cubes - 6-7 (Your goal is to have it get the consistency of a slushy)

low glycemic sugar alternatives - 1 packet of splenda (or teaspoon of agave or coconut sugar, etc...)

soda water - 1/2 cup

Huang Pi Martini (Kids)

Huang Pi (Yellow Skinned Fruit) - 15 pieces (for one kid martini)

lemon-lime soda (sprite) -

ice cubes -


1Wash, peel and remove seeds and membranes from Huang Pi (yellow skinned fruit). Feel free to substitute half of lime, half an orange and 1/4 of a grapefruit and a handful of peeled white grapes if you cannot get Huang Pi where you live.

2Step 2:

3Adult Version: Place Huang Pi fruit in the blender along with citrus vodka, ice cubes, low glycemic sugar alternative and soda water. Blend and mix into a 7/11 slurpy like texture.

4Kid Version: Place Huang Pi fruit in the blender along with ice cubes and lemon-lime soda. If your fruit is not sweet like a Huang Pi, then you may need to add a little low glycemic sugar alternative. Blend and mix into a 7/11 slurpy like texture.

5Pour cocktails into martini glasses for the adults and plastic tumblers for the kids. Garnish and enjoy your refreshing summer cocktail.

  • gorgeous…

  • What a cute puppy 🙂
    …and yes, it is never to early to get into the weekend spirit 😉

  • Wow, that looks amazingly delicious!! Congratulations on your new little friend!!

  • It’s a good thing that I read … when I saw the first photo, I thought it was artificial grapes, LOL! Today is Wednesday (hump day) … time to start preparing for the weekend … I like the way you think 😉

    What a cute puppy!!! Do the boys realize that they have been replaced … after all, there is a baby in the house now 🙂

  • You’re a tease – now I’ve got my tastebuds all worked up for those little fruits. They sound so good but yikes, what a lot of work…however after a couple of the martinis I’d be fine just sitting back peeling & taking the seeds out. Buddy is adorable! I remember the housebreaking days with Lola & one of us getting up about every 4 hours to run her outside. The nice thing about a tiny dog I think is that you can sneak them in almost anywhere in your bag. It’s kind of hard trying to sneak a Bernese Mountain dog anywhere.

  • Buddy is a cutie! I’ve never had this citrus before and it is interesting by the way you describe the flavor. I am wondering if Huang Pi is a fruit that I can find here in the US. I would have to pay more attention the next time I am in an Asian Supermarket. Thank you for the introduction to the fruit and the martini looks very inviting especially on a relaxing weekend. I hope you are having a good week, BAM. 🙂

  • Buddy is so cute! Puppies and kittens are the best thing going, aren’t they? So entertaining! Great looking martini (but of course I always say that about any martini!). But this one sounds so interesting. I love the color of it! Totally gorgeous. Really nice – thanks so much.

  • Love your cocktail and and I think the connection to puppy training is no coincidence! 🙂 Buddy is adorable!!!

  • Maureen | Orgasmic Chef

    I’d never heard of that fruit. I almost thought it was the name of a person. Huang Pi Martini, at your service.

    That puppy is adorable!!! I wouldn’t get anything done but play with the dog.

  • Such a cute puppy! The cocktail looks delicious an excellent summer drink 🙂

  • Ngaw Buddy you adorable beauty you 🙂
    And this cocktail looks so refreshing, love the colour!

    P.S. To prepare for my exams now I won’t be commenting for around 4 weeks – See you in a month my friend 🙂

  • Anne ~ Uni Homemaker

    What a refreshing drink! I have never heard of this fruit before but I love any cocktail that’s refreshing! So glad you have a new follower in your kitchen and he’s adorable! 🙂 Have a great rest of the week Bobbi!

  • That cocktail looks fruity and refreshing! And I am writhing with jealousy over your cute puppy!

  • Great drink!

  • That’s one cute pup and one cool drink!

  • Eha

    Hello Buddy! Welcome to your ‘Mommie”s blog even tho’ your reading skills are as yet undeveloped 🙂 ! NOW: Mommy is a busy lady: first meaning to learn: ‘behave! Do what she tells you!’ But ask Mommy to send lots of what we call photos, please! Yes, well, a new fruit to learn . . . but as far as cocktails go, these are lethal to me. I love wine and am more than capable of enjoying that to quite some degree! Something like the above is ‘gone’ in two sips and the next and the next may do damage 😀 ! Shall pass onto friends anyways: interesting!!!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Hello Eha, I think that Buddy is minding as he is sleeping on my feet as I respond to you. He is so sweet and a bundle of joy. Have you ever tried Huang Pi when you traveled abroad? Next time your in Asia give it a try. Huang Pi have a short peak season of only a few weeks in the summer so it is a real treat. Have a super week and take care, BAM

  • I’m not surprised you needed a drink, Buddy is too cute!

  • Right, I will just have to pop over to enjoy a cocktail with you and to meet Buddy – he is adorable! Is he the regular size doggy or the mini version?
    Cheers to a fabulous weekend.
    🙂 Mandy xo

    • Bams Kitchen

      Hi Mandy, Come on over I will get the blender ready. Buddy is a little miniature Yorkshire Terrier. He weighs only 1.5 pounds and will only get up to a max of 5 pounds. He is a little bundle of joy. Have a super week. BAM

  • Oh my, that puppy is adorable, Bam. They are one of my favourite breeds – so full of personality!
    I have never heard of Huang Pi but I will definitely look for it. Thanks for the alternate recipe if it’s not available. Your pics are gorgeous!

  • Sound like Buddy is keeping you mighty busy and on your toes. How will you find sufficient time to cook, blog, take care of 2 teenagers and now a new baby?

  • Would love one of these martinis! And Buddy is so adorable!

  • I need a couple of these drinks in my life right now 🙂 It’s about 1000 degrees in my house and this looks so refreshing!

  • This is the perfect Martini to serve to friends. I can’t enjoy this but I know my girls will 🙂

  • My mouth is watering looking at your Huang Pi Martini pictures. Yum! I haven’t eat Huang Pi for a long time cos I haven’t seen them in the markets here in the States.

    Buddy is a cutie. How fun to have this baby in the house. So adorable. 🙂

  • I wanna cuddle ‘Buddy’ 🙂 I wanna die in your Martini glass 🙂 I wanna stare at those cool shots all summer long 🙂

  • I’ve never heard to the Huang Pi, but when I lived in Singapore I would often buy Langsat – which sounds really quite similar to the Huang Pi. Must be a relative of some kind. Never tried them in a martini, but the recipe looks/sounds delicious.

  • Aw, Buddy is adorable!!!! And your martini is just plain gorgeous…I love the sound of huang pi! Sounds like life has been busy…hope you’re doing well! xo

  • This is one delicious looking Cocktail. Very interesting información about the Huang Pi fruit, will try to find it at the Chinese market.
    Buddy is so cute 🙂

  • please i am dying for that cocktail

  • I’m actually sipping a martini as I type this – although it doesn’t sound nearly as delicious as this one! And I just love Buddy!!!! What an absolute little doll! 🙂

  • I’m so in love with Buddy.. I wish I could have the time for a new dog, so I will be living vicariously through yours, Bam:D When I opened your post, I showed my dad and said.. now this is why I love my blogger friends, take a look at that drink! xx

  • I’m a fan of martini, but I’ve not seen this fruit. I’m a dog lover too, & Buddy is too cute!

  • Hi Bobbi! Your new follower is absolutely adorable! I wish I can keep a dog at home but I have no time to take care of it right now 🙁 I really need that martini as the weather in Singapore’s crazily hot these days! Need one to cool down 😉

  • sounds refreshing…..

  • What a tiny, sweet looking puppy. And of course your martini looks very refreshing.

  • Haha, a 6″ Subway sub!!! It’s funny – we always called small dogs “sandwich-fillers” in my family :D. Adorable little doggy Bam!

    The cocktail looks beautiful too… I never saw these fruits before, but they sound very juicy and exotic… I wonder if the Asian supermarkets in Paris might have them?

    • Bams Kitchen

      Hello Charles, I hope that you are doing well. I think that the Huang pi fruit has a very short season of just a couple of weeks so may not see these in the Asian supermarket in Paris. However, this martini would be lovely with the substitute half a lime, half and orange, a quarter of a grapefruit and a few white grapes for the Huang Pi. Take Care, BAM

  • great i like to have 2 glasses

  • What an adorable puppy! I have never heard of Huang Pi before. It is so much fun to learn about new foods -new to me at least 🙂

  • I’ve never heard of huang pi, nor seen it in the market, but surely would love a glass or two, of this wonderful looking martini!

  • I wonder if I can find that fruit in the U.S. It sounds like it has great flavors and the martini looks delicious…

  • First and maybe most important – what an adorable little dog. How fun!! And the martini looks great. I am just starting to get into them so I got my martini glasses and a shaker. Now time to study more about them so I have a clue what I am doing. 🙂

  • What a perfect way to toast that sweet and adorable baby Buddy. Congrats! What a face he has. 🙂

  • I never saw these fruits before, but that looks delicious!

  • Your doggie is adorable ,Bobbi and I am coming out to visit you so we can talk and eat all the incredible fruits you keep introducing me to,(and I will not find where I live!)
