May the 4th: Star Wars Day drink recipes

Obi-Wan after a Mary drinkMost people know Mary Franklin as Lucasfilm’s Senior Events Lead extraordinaire who creates the awesome Celebrations we all love. (Along with tons of other events for the company.) But Club Jade knows that her true talent lies in her awesome bartending skills and ability to create awesome Star Wars-themed drinks.

So imagine how happy we were that she has agreed to share a couple of her top secret Star Wars cocktails with us in celebration of Star Wars Day.

The Double Mistryl
1 oz blended whiskey
1 oz gin
1 oz sweet and sour mix
Splash of maraschino cherry juice
Shake with ice; strain into lowball glass or ice or cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.

Sex with a Rodian
2 oz Midori Lemon Liqeur
1 oz sweet and sour mix
Shake together and pour into a lowball of ice
Gently pour in a 1/2 oz of Chambord — it will sink to the bottom
Float: A drizzle of Jaegermeister

As always, don’t overdo it. And be sure you have a designated Wookiee to drive you home after these. You’ll need it!

If you’re going to be the designated driver or if you, like me, aren’t a fan of alcohol, Kristen Hidalgo, who you might know as a key part of the Lucasfilm event team, uses her culinary past to create some fantastic mocktail recipes on the official blog, including improvements on Yoda Soda and Blue Milk.

Is it time for the party, yet?

Roundup: What’s been cooking at the Tumblr

So the CJ Tumblr is coming along. It was born from last-minute disappointment, but I’ve actually found it fairly useful for stuff that I just don’t have the time to really blog. (It’s the new fandom minute!) This week we’ve featured so far, among other things…

The saga continues: Chad Vader Episode 3!

Star Wars Shadow Puppets. Is that the Audio Drama as (part of) the background? (Thanks, Bonnie!)

The Simpsons vs Star Trek. Genius!

Episode I: The Drunken Menace. Anakin’s ‘angel’ line makes a hell of a lot more sense in this context…

- The truth about Darth Vader
- 12 Angry Robots
- Death of an Ewok
- Filk: Mace on a Plane
- May the Fonze be with you. And also with you.
