As any Star Wars fan knows, Han Solo is the reluctant rebel pilot who always manages to come out on top. So it's only fitting that there's a cocktail named after him—and it's just as confident and delicious as the character himself.
The Flying Solo cocktail was created by Louis Hirsch during his time as GM of the now-closed Morels Steakhouse & Bistro at The Palazzo in Las Vegas. He concocted this nod to Han Solo because only a person of his confidence could find a positive use for that pink-headed stepchild of the wine world, white zinfandel.
This tasty concoction combines white zinfandel, Blanco tequila, fresh lemon juice, and agave nectar. The result is a reviving, tart drink with hints of red fruit flavor.
So whether you're spending a summer day outdoors or huddled indoors watching your favorite sci-fi saga, the Flying Solo is the perfect drink to enjoy.
