Today in 2019, Walt Disney World’s Galaxy’s Edge welcomed intergalactic patrons for the first time. Nestled inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the land marked the single biggest ever expansion to the park at a whopping 14 acres. While big-budget rides like Rise of the Resistance caught the media’s attention, Star Wars junkies were awe-struck by Batuu’s incredible attention to detail and “full immersion” experience.
Oga’s Cantina offered a welcome respite for scoundrels from across the Disney galaxy to rub shoulders and kick back an exotic cocktail or two. One of our favorite drinks from the menu is the acid green Dagobah Slug Slinger. In honor of Batuu’s birthday, we’re brewing up this legendary cocktail! Here’s how to make a Dagobah Slug Slinger at home!
How To Make A Dagobah Slug Slinger
1/2 ounce lime juice
2 ounces orange juice
1 out Dagobah Slug Syrup (see below)
1/2 teaspoon Blue Curacao
2 ounces tequila blanco
1 ounce water
Sprig of rosemary for garnish
Dagobah Slug Syrup Ingredients
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
4 ounces fresh ginger, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick
One 3-inch rosemary sprig
Begin with the Dagobah Slug syrup. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring the sugar and water to a bail. Add the ginger and rosemary and return to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat and leave to infuse for at least 5 hours, until very strong. Strain into a clean bottle and refrigerate until ready to use.
For the cocktail: combine the lime juice, orange juice, Dagobah Slug Syrup, curacao, tequila and water in a shaker and shake to combine.
Pour into a tall glass with a few ice cubes and garnish with a sprig of rosemary.
For added flair, light part of the rosemary sprig on fire, then blow out and let smoulder.
