May the Fourth Be With You! This cocktail is inspired by the infamous blue milk seen in Star Wars: A New Hope, which Luke Skywalker drinks at breakfast with his aunt and uncle on Tatooine. It’s not surprising that the first sip of this drink tastes just like Luke’s first kiss: shocking.

But then, you’re hooked. It’s as if Han Solo himself is whispering in your ear about how he’ll get you home safe, so long as you keep sipping. If you’re having a bad day and Darth Vader has just told you he’s your father, this drink will make it better. Even if you’re too young to remember the original Star Wars trilogy, this cocktail will make your taste buds feel like they’re seeing it for the very first time.

Blue milk is an intoxicating balance of tart and sweet, with a subtle hint of spice in the aftertaste. Its recipe brings that nostalgia to life for fans everywhere — and even people who haven’t seen the film will be sure to enjoy it’s refreshing flavour as much as space travellers do.
