We all remember the iconic Mos Eisley Cantina scene from Star Wars: A New Hope. Also known as Chalmun’s Cantina, the vibe was festively volatile, the music was bumpin’…but what exactly were those crazy critters drinking? Well… we did some deep diving into the internet to find out. And we’ve done our best to re-create the recipes using ingredients found on Planet Earth!
Description: Also known as bantha milk. A rich blue-colored milk produced by female banthas.
Earth adaptation: Since banthas live in a galaxy far, far away, go ahead and use Earthling cow’s milk. Add blue food coloring. Mix together and serve slightly warm.
Description: An alcoholic beverage made of fermented fruit. The drink is suitable for human consumption, and named after the sunsets of the planet Tatooine.
Earth adaptation: Hmm… we had to fill in a lot of blanks here. We’re going to say, make a tequila sunrise, add two cherries to represent the two suns of Tatooine, and garnish with a sand rim.
Description: A Huttese beer, sweeter than boga noga, more like a wheat beer. Made of fermented dewback sweat.
Earth adaptation: Since Earthlings generally steer clear of drinking sweat, we’re gonna say just go ahead and serve a wheat beer in a weird, tall, cloudy looking glass.
Description: Also known as Ardees. A sour beverage concocted by Jawas. Made of bantha hides mashed with fermented grains.
Earth adaptation: Mashed hides?! WTF. Our recommendation is to avoid Jawa Juice altogether.
Description: A mead made from fermented Tatooine cactus nectar.
Earth adaptation: Now we’re talking! This sounds like tequila to me! Take a shot of tequila and do your best to avoid debt collectors.
Description: A colorful slurry of aquatic organisms.
Earth adaptation: Kombucha. Pretty sure this is just kombucha.
Now that you’ve planned your menu, gather up your degenerate space trash friends, and put on some cantina tunes. Go ahead and get into a bar fight, it’s very authentic!
