Bothan

Tequila , Modern Classics

Thoroughly testing the depth of Star Wars nerdiness, Billy Nichols, the bar manager at Faun in Brooklyn, named this galactically green-hued concoction after the species of rebel spies who provided the Rebellion with the plans to blow up the Death Star in Return of the Jedi. “I’m a Star Wars nerd,” says Nichols. “I thought this green, cloudy tequila cocktail looked the part.”

Sarlacc Pit

Rum , Modern Classics

At The Sixth in Chicago’s Lincoln Square, beverage director Benjamin Schiller couldn’t resist making a molded pate de fruit head garnish of Darth Vader (basically a room-stable gummy bear) for this cheerful tropical drink, served up in a Boba Fett Tiki glass, of course. But even if you don’t want to go that deep into Empire kitsch, this drink, named for the sand-dwelling, flesh-eating fave of Jabba the Hutt, is pretty easy to stir up and throw down in a few delicious sips. Bonus: The Han’s mix is really a tweaked version of famed Tiki maestro Donn Beach’s Don’s Mix. Sweet!

Flying Solo

Tequila , Modern Classics

Louis Hirsch, the GM of Morels Steakhouse & Bistro at The Palazzo in Las Vegas, created this nod to reluctant rebel pilot and all-around intergalactic heartthrob Han Solo because only a person of his confidence could find a positive use for that pink-headed stepchild of the wine world, white zinfandel.
