You may have heard that J.J. Abrams has a new movie out and we’ve been celebrating its arrival all week. We collaborated with mixologist Beautiful Booze to create cocktails that are out-of this world and today we’re sharing our final two.
If you missed our first set of cocktails, head over to Part I to get the recipes for Paradise on a Desert Planet and the Cantina Cooler.
Rebel in Red
After vanquishing the galactic forces of darkness, it’s important to celebrate accordingly with your fellow rebels and favorite droids. Here’s a delightfully sweet take on the Tequila Sunrise:
1 ½ oz. of Senor Rio Tequila
4-6 oz. of orange juice depending on serving glass
½ oz. of cherry syrup
Cherries, for garnish
In a serving glass, add ice then orange juice and tequila. Stir cocktail and add cherry syrup.
Yield: 1 serving
Shots for Smugglers
We’ve developed a recipe perfect for those who spend their days evading space gangsters and transporting off-the-books cargo to the outer reaches of space.
¾ cup Esme Gin
½ cup cranberry juice
1 cup tonic water
2 envelopes Knox Gelatin
Black sprinkles, for garnish
In a saucepan, add cranberry juice and tonic water. Turn heat on low and sprinkle in two envelopes of gelatin. Stir mixture until the gelatin dissolves. Remove from heat and stir in gin. Pour mixture into shot glasses. Put in refrigerator and let shot glasses chill overnight.
Yield: 10-15 jello shots (depending on size of shot glasses)
