A Cool Drink for the Mos Eisley Cantina’s Coolest Band: Modal Nodes Pop

Beat the Tatooine heat with this easy recipe.

The Mos Eisley cantina may have been a wretched hive of scum and villainy, but the music was always on-point thanks to the Bith musicians known as the Modal Nodes, led by Figrin D’an.

Get into the musical groove by making a Modal Nodes Pop, a drink sure to beat the Tatooine heat. A bubbly beverage infused with sweet fruit flavor that’s garnished with an edible orchestra. With this refreshment in hand you won’t even notice the shady dealings going on at the other end of the cantina.

Modal Nodes Pop

What You’ll Need:

  • Black straws
  • Lychee for garnish
  • Cloves
  • Black food coloring pen
  • Instrument cut-outs

Ingredients:

  • 15 oz (1 can) lychee
  • 12 oz (1 can) ginger ale
  • Squeeze of lemon
  • 2 cups ice

Step 1: Glue the instrument cut-outs approximately 2-inches down from the end of the straws. Peal the lychee.

Step 2: Once the glue has tried, place lychee onto the end of the straws.

Step 3: Poke cloves into the bottom of the lychee, then use a food coloring pen to color the “eyes” black. Set aside.

Step 4: In a blender, add the lychee, ginger ale, and lemon juice. Start blending slowly, being careful of the soda’s carbonation. Blend well.

Step 5: Pour the lychee mixture over ice. Stir well, then add the lychee straw garnish to serve.
