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.

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
