Billy Atchison, the co-founder of Banjo Cold Brew Coffee in Atlanta, is a Jedi junkie. So much so that he created this cocktail in honor of the respected and unconventional, if thoroughly paranoid, Jedi master Qui-Gon Jinn. “Sweetened cold-brew coffee gives it enough edge to win at any pod race,” says Atchison. “And the smooth gin plus lemon ensures that any Jedi could keep his cool when negotiations seem to be failing.”
