A toast to Han Solo: Cocktails fit for Mos Eisley Spaceport

We first met the sultry smuggler in a dingy cantina full of degenerates, where he fired the shot heard around the galaxy—Han shot first.  

 Han Shot First Gif

Then, we witnessed this lovable scoundrel get attacked by Imperial Stormtroopers; help destroy the Death Star; stuff Luke inside a tauntaun (still gross); fly through an asteroid field into a giant worm’s mouth; fall in love with Leia; get frozen in carbonite; lose and find the Millennium Falcon a few times along the way, and (if you are conscience person on this planet) you know the rest.

So, it’s only appropriate to toast the hits and near misses of the Solo saga by crafting a few cocktails in his honor.

Set up your own Mos Eisley cantina and give one of these three drinks a try. There is no need to tell me how much you love them – I know.
