Star Wars drinks for Star Wars Day

Happy Star Wars  Day!  To celebrate this year's fake geek holiday, I'm doing something I've done for other holidays but never so far for this one, feature a drink recipe from Tipsy Bartender.  I present Star Wars Shots AKA Han Shot First.

Super tasty and fun... STAR WARS SHOTS! This is a crazy combo with a clever Star Wars theme!
Han Solo Shot:
1/2 oz. (15ml) Kahlua coffee liqueur
1/2 oz (15ml) Bailey's
1/2 oz (15ml) Crown Royal

Greedo Shot:
1/2 oz. (15ml) Kahlua coffee liqueur
1/2 oz (15ml) Bailey's
Mix 1 oz (30ml) Green Creme de Menthe and Bacardi 151 in a measuring glass, then layer on top. Light the mixture to signify Greedo getting shot by the blaster!!
Those drinks deserve some musical accompaniment.  Here's Star Wars Suite - Cantina Band (BBC Proms) for your drinking pleasure.

Once again, Happy Star Wars Day and May the Fourth be with you!


  1. a cantina drink, if I ever saw one. "These are not the droids you are looking for." Jedi Trumpism. The force is strong, with the weak minded. Saddened by the loss of Chewbacca.

    1. Yes, it is. As for Trump, he's Sith, not Jedi. I am saddened by the death of Mayhew, the first Chewbacca. Fortunately, another actor is in the suit. The same can't be said about Leia. It's not like Disney can really get away with recasting the role with Jodie Foster, who tried out the first time more than 40 years ago.
