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.
This recipe originally appeared as part of “These 16 'Star Wars' Cocktail Recipes Come from a Galaxy Far, Far Away.”
- 1 1/2 oz Partida blanco tequila
- 1/2 oz Agave nectar
- 1/2 oz Fresh lemon juice
- 1 oz White zinfandel
- Garnish: Lemon wheel
- Garnish: Straw
Combine the tequila, agave nectar and juice into a shaker with ice and shake.
Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass.
Float with the white zinfandel.
Cut a hole in the corner of a lemon wheel (so it looks like the Death Star) and garnish.
Add a straw.
