Channel the alien planet from Star Wars with this creamy combination of gin, coconut cream and blue curaçao. Created by Karen Grill of Sassafras Saloon in Los Angeles, this blue-hued Piña Colada variation is everything you’d want in a liquid ode to Luke Skywalker’s family breakfast, striking a perfect balance of citrus, sweetness, creamy nuttiness and, well, blue.
