Pandora Elixir

Thomas J. Story

Pandora, Avatar's lush 3D otherworld, is a forest paradise brimming with mysterious plants, flowers, and sentient trees. In one scene, Neytiri gives Jake a round fruit that looks similar to our passion fruit, a key flavor in this new cocktail we created for Oscar night. We imagine if there were a bar on Pandora, this would be its signature drink.

Prep Time:


  • 1/4 cup light rum
  • 2 tablespoons frozen passion fruit concentrate blend (from a 12 oz. can)
  • 1 small kaffir lime leaf, torn into several pieces, or 1 tsp. lime zest
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup soda water


  1. Put 1 cup ice in a cocktail shaker. Add juice concentrate, lime leaf, lime juice; shake well to blend. Strain into 2 martini glasses, dividing evenly. Top each glass with 2 tbsp. soda water. Serve with a lime wedge as garnish.

If you like, make this drink with other juices—passion fruit, orange juice, or guava-guava—for a colorful mix.
