Meteor Showers = stars = star fruit drink
Now you can wish on REAL "shooting stars"
Speaking of stars, Star fruit is the cutest way to garnish any drink. Slice is in it's star shape and place on the rim of a glass or even floating in the drink so when you take a sip you see the star shaped fruit.
Here is what you need to know:

Star fruit, or carambola, is available all year long.
Cut & clean
Star fruit does not need to be peeled. Simply rinse under cool water and slice.
The star of your next salad
When sliced, star fruit’s unique shape adds beauty, style, and a sweet, tangy flavor to cocktails, and fruit or vegetable salads. They make a great, edible garnish as well.
Star fruit is an excellent source of vitamin C.
