On Star Wars Day (held May 4 each year) or any day, toast the greatest film franchise of all time with Aunt Beru’s Spiked Blue Milk cocktail, which pays homage to the comforting, creamy drink enjoyed by many a thirsty sentient.
In the Star Wars galaxy, blue milk is siphoned from the mammaries of Tatooine’s female banthas. Unable to wrangle up a single bantha, let alone a lactating bantha, we opted to sub in blue curacao cordial syrup and regular old cow’s milk cream, which we complemented with a few other tiki flavors.
The result? A tasty way to celebrate your geekdom. May the fourth be with you.
