The next installment the of the Star Wars series, The Last Jedi, comes out Friday. Yes, we're all looking forward to hearing lightsaber sounds and seeing more of Mark Hamill postpuberty, but the Theodore seems to be particularly excited about the new release. For opening day, it's created a specialty cocktail menu with four cocktails featuring the 86 Co. liquor lineup.
The drinks range from straightforward liquor-citrus-sweet combinations to a little over-the-top (in the best way possible) cocktails like the Jedi Master, made with Caña Brava Rum, coconut milk, port, thyme and lemon. And while we're slightly disappointed that we weren't sipping them from lightsaber straws, they were good enough to make up for it.
