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.

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.

Teal-quila Sunrise

Tequila , Modern Classics

This fun, summer take on the Tequila Sunrise knocks out the grenadine for homemade raspberry syrup (don’t worry, it’s easy!) and a dash of blue curaçao for a drink that’s as tasty as it is colorful.
