May the Fourth Be With You: Try This Grogu-themed Cocktail
It’s officially Star Wars Day, and with it comes all sorts of galactic treats to help commemorate every fan’s favorite unofficial holiday: May the Fourth Be with You. And what better way to celebrate the beloved franchise than with a cocktail that’s a spitting image of the series’ most popular character, Grogu!
The cocktail, named “Baby Yoda/The Child,” was crafted by the Elysian Brewing Company based in Washington and uses a combination of Grey Goose vodka, muddled kiwi, fresh lime, demerara syrup, and bitters, garnished with makeshift “ears” and a burlap wrap that help transform a simple martini glass into a tiny, drinkable Baby Yoda.

To finish the look, use a burlap cloth as Yoda’s robe and a cinnamon stick or twig as a walking stick.
