It seems J.J. Abrams has caused a disturbance in the you know what. However, according to reviews and nearly universal fan approval, it’s all for the better. Like many of our customers, we’re heading out this weekend to watch the new movie and catch up with some of our favorite characters.

And we couldn’t think of a better way to commemorate such a momentous occasion than with cocktails that celebrate the entire series, even the ones that weren’t fan favorites.

We collaborated with mixologist and rebel leader Beautiful Booze to use the force and create an out-of-this-world set of inspired cocktails.


Paradise on a Desert Planet

Thanks to its two suns, we can’t imagine what summers were like for Luke on his home planet. That’s why we whipped up the cool and refreshing Paradise on a Desert Planet.

To mix up this recipe, you will need:

1 1/2 oz. George Ocean Rum

1 oz. condensed milk

1 oz. lime juice

3 oz. orange juice

Orange slices and graham cracker rim, for garnish

In a cocktail shaker, add ice, rum, condensed milk, lime juice and orange juice. Shake mixture forcefully*. Rim glass with graham crackers. Pour mixture into serving glass and make sure to make one for Luke.

*This cocktail needs to be shaken very hard to mix up the condensed milk

Yield: 1 serving


Cantina Cooler

Whether you’re flying solo or meeting friends to listen to a great house band, the Cantina Cooler is the perfect choice to start your adventure off right.

1 1/2 oz. Veil Vodka

1 oz. cranberry juice

1 oz. lime juice

½ oz. simple syrup

Top with a lager beer

Fresh cranberries, for garnish

In a metal shaker add vodka, cranberry juice, lime juice, and simple syrup. Shake and strain mixture over crushed ice, then top with beer (we recommend a Helles Lager, but just about any lager will do).

Yield: 1 serving
