Sarlaac Pit Recipe
If you thought Star Wars was only for nerds, think again—even bartenders are getting in on the fun. Inspired by characters and creatures from the science fiction classic, bartenders are whipping up drinks that are out of this world.
One example is Benjamin Schiller's Sarlacc Pit, named for the flesh-eating monster from "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi."
The Sarlacc Pit is made with El Dorado's five-year-old gold rum, ginger syrup, lime juice, bitters, and Schiller's own Han's Mix, a tweaked version of the Don's Mix #1 from famed Tiki bartender Donn Beach.
Plus, it is fittingly named for a desert planet like Tatooine. So if you're ever in the mood for a star wars-themed cocktail this May 4, check out this recipe.

3 dashes of Bittermens Elemakule Tiki bitters
