For our first Thirsty Thursday, we present a double feature in celebration of Star Wars Celebration and the premiere of Obi-Wan Kenobi

Welcome to Thirsty Thursday, I am your Mix Master Kevin Fenix and I will be sharing my recipes for some nerd-inspired cocktails. These drinks are meant to be consumed responsibly and not in excess. If you do happen to do something unwanted or worse under the influence, that is all on you. That being said, these recipes are to celebrate our many fandoms and be a unique offering to your next get-together, gathering, game night, etc. Also, it is to promote ROKiT Drinks who provide a majority of our spirits. So check out the recipes, make them yourself, and be sure to share your experiences with us.

Without further adieu, here are this week’s drinks inspired by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Star Wars Celebration.

The Sith (for Star Wars Celebration 2022)

Obi-Wan Kenobi Thirsty Thursday
The Sith

The Sith is my dark take on a Paloma. It has Tequila, Whiskey, Grenadine, and Grapefruit Soda served in a Rocks Glass lined with Margarita Salt. You can dye the salt black for a little extra umph, but that’s a long process I wasn’t willing to do. I initially thought about using Absolut, because only Siths deal in absolutes. But they are not a sponsor and I felt dark liquors should be used for the dark side. Plus I really like tequila. In this particular recipe, I used Teramana, as ROKiT did not provide me with Tequila, and I am a big fan of Dwayne Johnson and his numerous beverages. Check how it’s made in the video below.

The OB1 (inspired by Obi-Wan Kenobi)

The OB1

My second favorite Jedi, Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, is finally getting more of his story told. Tonight at midnight fans around the world will be able to watch the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+, and what better way to enjoy the series than with a cocktail inspired and named after it. Mainly, it was always in the plan to make a red and blue cocktail. As blue is a really weird color for food, and because it also works with the whole motif of the force, I used light spirits to maintain the Blue Curacao and Light Side of the force. Teremana Tequila Blanco, ROKiT Gin, Blue Curacao, and Pineapple Juice because I love pineapple juice.

Plus, dual lemon wedges represent the dual suns of Tatooine. Let’s also say the salt on the rim is for the sand of the planet to really hone in the Obi-Wan Kenobi theme.
