Serves 1 (serving size: 1 cup)

Drink like a true Jedi with this Star Wars cocktail. In celebration of Rogue One, we created a blend of tequila, schnaaps, and sour mix garnished with a lightsaber. That makes this the perfect beverage for fans of the force.


For the Death Star Ice Cube:

  • red food coloring
  • water

For the cocktail:

  • 1/4 cup white tequila
  • 1/4 cup sour apple flavored schnaaps
  • 1/4 cup Midori
  • 1 tablespoon blue curaçao
  • 1 tablespoon sour mix

For the lightsaber garnish:

  • black licorice
  • white candy coating
  • red and green Sanding Sugar
  • black frosting

How to Make It

  1. To make the Death Star Ice Cube, fill a glass with water. Stir in red food coloring, 1 drop at a time, until water reaches desired shade of red. Pour water into your desired ice cube mold. Transfer to freezer; freeze until solid.

  2. To make the cocktail, place tequila and the next 4 ingredients (through sour mix) in an ice-filled cocktail shaker; shake until combined. Place Death Star Ice Cube into a glass; pour tequila mixture into glass.

  3. To make the lightsaber garnish, cut black licorice in half and trim one end to look like the tip of a sword. Melt candy coating according to package instructions; dip licorice into melted candy coating and sprinkle 3/4 of the length of the licorice with red or green sugar. Outline the remaining 1/4 of the length of the licorice with black frosting to create the handle. Repeat for as many lightsabers as you desire.
