Thanks, RumJourney--and also with you. 8)

A few tikis along those bare white concrete walls and maybe a couple silk palms (It's Tatooine, afterall) and this place could become a swingin' tiki joint. Heck, it's ALREADY in a pirate town with its own form of Exotica.

Wishing you all the 4th, on the light side.

Cocktails appropriate for today:

DARK SIDE COCKTAIL
Black as Vader’s cape, this nod to the seduction of evil by NOLA bartender Christian Villalta is apropos. Drinking this opaque beauty is an irresistible force itself, after all. Its up-the-ante ingredients make it perfect for both the incurable cocktail geek and “Star Wars” nerds everywhere. (It requires making your own black sesame orgeat.)

This recipe originally appeared as part of “May the Fourth Be with You with These 4 ‘Star Wars’ Cocktails.”

INGREDIENTS IN THE DARK SIDE COCKTAIL
1 1⁄2 oz Maker’s Mark 46 whiskey
1⁄2 oz Black sesame orgeat*
1 Lime, juiced
13 dashes Angostura bitters
1 pinch Activated charcoal

Garnish:
Jasmine flower

Glass: Coupe
HOW TO MAKE THE DARK SIDE COCKTAIL
Add all the ingredients into a shaker with ice, and shake until well-chilled.

Strain into a chilled coupe glass.

Garnish with a jasmine flower.

*Black sesame orgeat: Combine 3/4 cup black sesame seeds and 1/4 cup white sesame seeds on a baking sheet, and bake at 400 degrees F for 5 minutes. Let cool, then purée in a blender with 2 cups simple syrup until pasty. Strain purée through a cheesecloth, then mix with 1 splash orange blossom water and 8 oz vodka. Store in an airtight glass container in a cool, dry place.

THE QUI-GON GIN-SINGER COCKTAIL
Billy Atchison, the co-founder of Banjo Cold Brew Coffee in Atlanta, is a Jedi junkie. So much so that he created this cocktail in honor of the respected and unconventional, if thoroughly paranoid, Jedi master Qui-Gon Jinn. “Sweetened cold-brew coffee gives it enough edge to win at any pod race,” says Atchison. “And the smooth gin plus lemon ensures that any Jedi could keep his cool when negotiations seem to be failing.”

INGREDIENTS IN THE QUI-GON GIN-SINGER COCKTAIL
2 oz Boylan Heritage tonic water
2 oz Old Fourth Distillery gin
6 oz Banjo Sweetly Tuned cold-brew coffee

Garnish:
Lemon peel

Glass: Highball
HOW TO MAKE THE QUI-GON GIN-SINGER COCKTAIL
Pour the tonic over a highball glass filled with ice and set aside.

Add the gin and coffee into a mixing glass and stir.

Pour the mixture over the tonic.

Express the oil of a lemon peel over the glass, and drop in to garnish.

For everyone celebrating May the Fourth (or Revenge of the Fifth/Sixth) the "Galaxy's Edge" cookbook has some great drink recipes.
