Dagobah Slug Slinger (Star Wars version of a Singapore Sling)


Is there a better way to celebrate Star Wars Day than with a themed cocktail?  I think not.  But before we get to the recipe, let’s look at a book review.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook
Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Star Wars themed cook book "authored" by the cook for Maz's castle. Honestly, the story preceding the recipes dragged on and the recipe descriptions felt forced. The recipes all had Star Wars themed names, but they were often a little too out there to easily discern what the recipe actually was. Many of the recipes are things I would consider making, though in general there's too much reliance on food coloring and weird names for my preference.

For the most part, recipes in the book are regular recipes with Star Wars-y names.  As far as I can tell, today's recipe is kind of like a Singapore Sling, but used tequila instead of gin so it tastes a lot like a margarita - ya know, in case you want to combine Revenge of the 5th with Cinco de Mayo.

No matter what it’s called, the flavors balance beautifully and the cocktail is very smooth.  This is a great addition to your adult Star Wars Party!

Dagobah Slug Slinger 

Recipe from Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge:The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook

Dagobah Slug Syrup (Ginger-Rosemary Simple Syrup)

¼ cup sugar

¼ cup water

1 ½ -inch knob fresh ginger, peeled and sliced 1/4-inch thick

1 teaspoon dried rosemary (or 1 sprig fresh rosemary)

Slug Slinger

2 ounces orange juice

2 ounces gold tequila

1 ounce water

½ ounce Dagobah Slug Syrup (Ginger-Rosemary Simple Syrup)

½ ounce lime juice

½ teaspoon blue curacao

To make the syrup,  combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Stir until the sugar is dissolved.  Add the ginger and rosemary and simmer for 15 minutes.  Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.  Pour into a container, cover, and refrigerate to let the flavors infuse.  Let the mixture infuse for at least 2 hours or, for more intense flavor, infuse overnight.  Strain prior to using. Syrup makes enough for 4 cocktails.

To make the drink, combine the drink ingredients.  Stir to mix and serve over ice.
