M Gin & Tonic

Gin , Modern Classics

Chicago’s RPM Steak rolled out three G&Ts for its summer menu—an “R,” a “P” and an “M,” appropriately. The M is an especially distinct take on the classic Gin & Tonic—a darker, more lush version of the usually bright and zippy drink.

Appletini

Vodka , Modern Classics

Originally called Adam’s Apple Martini, the Appletini became a crowd pleaser from the day it was invented at L.A. restaurant Lola’s in 1996. The original recipe simply used vodka and green apple schnapps, but we updated the modern classic with calvados and fresh Granny Smith apple juice.

Valley of the Dark Lords

Mezcal , Modern Classics

One part inspiration from a Blood & Sand, one part terrarium, this cocktail from GM Sol Trece is a terrestrial textural treat from La Cuevita in the Highland Park neighborhood of L.A. “We wanted a cocktail that if you were looking through a telescope from another planet you would see sand and living creatures,” says Trece. “We added turmeric for sand color and texture and chia seeds for the ‘creatures’ effect.’”

A Drink, Yoda Is

Mezcal , Modern Classics

The folks at Datz in Tampa like to have fun with their food and drink, be it with candy in the cocktails or nods to pop culture icons. This homage to that tiny little pointy-eared bundle of wisdom, Yoda, by bar manager Morgan Zuch manages to make wayward whimsy taste pretty great.

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.
