H ave you been bitten by the Star Wars bug yet? It’s pretty amazing to think how popular the film franchise has become just in the last decade. We just attended the mega event, Star Wars Celebration, here in Orlando two weeks back and it was pretty insane. The amount of time, and dedication Star Wars fans have is beyond me, but as a fan (not quite a fanatic), I feel it’s our duty to add to the hype with a cocktail that would make any Star Wars fan proud. Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past 40 years, chances are you’ve heard the term “May the force be with you”, thee definitive star wars quote. So it was only natural that May 4th would become an unofficial Star Wars holiday. The blue milk of Star Wars has built a cult following, so we thought we would share some of the Blue Milk recipes from around the web.
Recipe by Karen Grill, Sassafras Saloon, Los Angeles
- 2 ounces Beefeater 24
- 1 ounce coconut cream
- ¾ ounce pineapple juice
- ¾ ounce lime juice
- ½ ounce blue Curaçao
- ½ ounce Giffard vanilla syrup
- ½ ounce orgeat syrup
Directions Pour ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well, and strain into a milk jar or Collins glass.
- 3 ounces of milk
- 1 ounce of cream
- 1 ounce of coconut rum
- 1 ounce of amaretto
- 2 ounces of blue curacao
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake for 20-30 seconds until chilled. Serve in a chilled glass. It tastes like a creamsicle! The almond and coconut flavors help reduce the orange flavor and create a sweeter drink that is a lovely shade of blue.
