It’s been 10 years since our last trip to a galaxy far, far away, and the latest installment of the Star Wars saga is finally on its way here – if you noticed.
So come Friday, December 18, while all the nerds in your life will be are standing in line at the theater, you can be home sipping these Star Wars themed cocktails, deciding whether you want to join the Dark Side.
Jedi Mind Trick
- .5 oz. dry vermouth – we used La Quintinye Vermouth Royal
- 1.5 oz. gin – we used The London Nº1 Gin
- Lemon twist
Shake together the vermouth and gin, then double strain into a martini glass. Garnish with the lemon twist. Classic and awesome – just like the original Star Wars movies. And don’t say you don’t like them because that’s just un-American.
- 2 oz. tequila – we used Partida Anejo
- .75 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
- .5 oz. agave nectar
- 1 oz. Champagne
Add the tequila, lime juice, and agave nectar to a shaker, then shake and strain into a martini glass. Top with the Champagne and garnish with a lime twist if you have one on hand. Named after the new Star Wars’ heroine, this drink is about as strong as Disney’s desire to prove it can have normal, awesome, female stars WHO DON’T NEED NO MAN. But srsly, bottoms up.
