XUXU– Means Kiss You Kiss You and GREAT DRINKS too! LA STORY YUMMY Drinks Blog!

XUXU — a new beverage/spirit on the market is just launching and it’s hot! Maybe cool is the better term to use but it’s definitely special. This luscious drink is made with 10% vodka and about 45% pureed strawberries making it a perfect addition to ANY cocktail that you might think of.


With Mother’s day and bridal events on the calendar, this can be used to create desserts  by pouring it over ice cream or using it like a sauce for cheesecake or even strawberry shortcake to "juice up" those desserts.

XUXU Royale can be mixed with champagne for a juicy drink that has that unusual flavor. You can add the cassis but it’s not necessary.

Here are two recipes that could be used for parties–whether for a crowd or for a party of two!

Xubana Ingredients:

2 oz XUXU,

4 oz banana juice


Pour the banana juice into a long drink glass, add 2 cubes of ice.\

Slowly pour 2 oz XUXU into the glass so that it does not blend with the banana juice.

Garnish the rim of the glass with a fresh strawberry and add two straws.

For those who want something with a little more kick and a little more balance (less sweetness), here’s a great one though it does require a bit more effort It’s also a great way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo!


      2 oz XUXU

      1 oz Gran Centenario Reposado Tequila

      1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice

      1/2 oz Simple Syrup

Shake ingredients over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Top with a splash of house-made rhubarb soda.* Garnish with a fanned strawberry.

  *For Rhubarb Soda:

  To make rhubarb syrup, combine 6 cups chopped rhubarb stalks with 1 1/2 cups of sugar and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Strain the syrup and refrigerate (for up to one week). Makes 20 oz.

Combine equal parts rhubarb syrup with chilled club soda for Rhubarb Soda.

Currently it’s available at www.xuxu.de, but will roll out nationally in June. Hit your local spirit retailer and ask them to order this. It’s an ideal SUMMER mixer!

Happy Mixing!
