Star Wars Day. It’s here. And whether you’re lining up to see the movie or barring yourself indoors to avoid the swarms of Stormtrooper clad fans, here’s something we can all agree on: a nice cocktail. So below, the Planet Hoth Toddy, an inspired drink to toast Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Referring to the Star Wars ice planet, Hoth, that first appeared in The Empire Strikes Back, this tasty number features good rum, lime juice and maraschino liqueur, which is always a winning combination. Throw in some sugar and an egg white, and you’ve got a silky smooth cocktail for funneling into your best movie-going flask.
