7 Cocktails To Ensure That The Fourth Is With You (Recipes)


By Cooking Panda

May the Fourth be with you!

Have you caught the Star Wars bug today? If you can catch a few minutes of a break between blowing up the Death Star and completing your Jedi training, consider mixing up a few festive cocktails that are as fun as they are delicious.

1. The Death Star

This Long Island-type hybrid drink that features Jagermeister, triple sec, sweet and sour, cola and some more booze is as powerful as they come. Join the Dark Side!

2. The Princess Leia

Oh, Carrie, you are sorely missed. Toast to the memory of everyone’s favorite princess with this cocktail that is fittingly tart, unusual and surprisingly strong.

3. Stormtrooper

If you’re boring, you can also call it the Shibuya Shake. Either way, we’re pretty sure Finn drinks this after a hard day at work.

4. Darth Vader

AKA the black widow martini, this stunningly dark cocktail with an easy sugar rim gets its theatrics from a couple drops of black food coloring, although the chocolaty rummy treat is tasty on its own if you prefer to do without.

5. Spiked Blue Milk

Call it the Luke Skywalker if you want. Whatever you want to name it, this creamy, coconutty delight is sweet and rich — even more so if you swap out the milk and/or cream for coconut milk to really amp up that tropical flavor.

6. Giggling Yoda

I’ve got to be honest here. This drink looks sort of gross. It looks like a fizzed-up smoothie, and that’s basically what it is. It tastes great, for what it’s worth, and the swampy appearance is actually pretty perfect for Yoda. However, if you’d rather make it look a little less sludgy, feel free to juice the fruit so that it doesn’t look so thick.

7. Han Solo

Also known as the Smoked Hudson, this combination of peaty scotch, bold, bitter spices, smoke and a little bit of fire couldn’t be more fitting for everybody’s favorite blaster wielder.

May The Fourth Be With You! 10 Recipes For Star Wars Day


By Cooking Panda

May the Fourth be with you! That’s right, today is Star Wars Day! If you want to celebrate but don’t particularly want to serve blue milk and gruel – let’s face it, the food in Star Wars is not always the most appealing – we have some ideas for you.

1. Princess Leia Cupcakes

Princess Leia quite possibly has the most iconic hairstyle in movie history. Take advantage of this and make it into really easy and delicious cupcakes. They are way easier to decorate than they look.

2. Star Wars Pizzas

Not only do you get a delicious pizza with a healthy dose of veggies, but you’ll have an easy and stunning Star Wars-style meal. There’s only one question left: are you Team Yoda or Team Vader?

3. Lightsaber Pretzels

Are you more into the light side or the dark side? Pick a red or green lightsaber pretzel and decide once and for all!

5. Jedi Mind Trick Cocktail

The force is strong with this blue cocktail. Add a drop of blue food coloring to really take it to the next level. We can’t promise it won’t mess with your brain a little.

6. Tatooine Blue Milkshakes

Remember that blue milk we were talking about? Yeah, how about making it as a milkshake? This stunning treat will really hit the spot with those who are looking for a non-boozy option.

7. Stormtrooper Cheese Ball

This is the cheese ball you’re looking for! It looks really intricate but is actually pretty quick and easy if you follow the steps.

8. Sarlacc Bundt Cake

Don’t fall in!

9. Severed Wampa Arm Cake

Luke would be proud. Bonus points if you serve this alongside those lightsaber pretzels.

10. BB8 Cookies

Decorate some simple shortbread or gingerbread cookies like our favorite new character. More of an R2-D2 fan? Make these cupcakes instead.
