Xanadu (Non-Alcoholic)

Xanadu or Shengdu is the mythical realm in China where Kublai Kahn supposedly created a pleasure palace and stored untold treasures. One could supposedly receive enlightenment by entering there. This is such a good name for a non-alcoholic tiki cocktial.

Key to this drink is awesome falernum, which adds spice as well as sweetness. Guava nectar is also that bit of tropical fruit that is hard to identify and exotic when you taste it. This is a blended drink, and as such, it is entirely possible to combine acids and cream as long as you are careful when adding ingredients to the blender.
  • 2 oz. guava nectar
  • 2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 oz. falernum
  • 1 oz. half-and-half
Combine all ingredients except half-and-half in a blender with ice and blend to crush ice. Add half-and-half and blend until smooth. Pour into a chilled champagne flute.
