Feel the Force (of Vodka) With This Lightsaber Cocktail

If you feel that December 27, 2017 seems so far, far away (like a certain galaxy, no?), we're with you. We can't wait for Star Wars: Episode VIII either, especially now that we've caught wind of the official title. So take heart, impatient jedis -- DrinksMadeEasy is here with a lightsaber-inspired cocktail to soothe your waiting woes. Become one with the force -- or, you know, vodka. It's kind of the same thing, right? Watch the video to see how it's done. 

Lightsaber Cocktail

Total Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 1 cocktail

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • ½ ounce Blue Curaçao
  • ½ ounce Midori
  • 2½  ounces homemade lemonade
  • ¾ cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 drops dry ice
DIRECTIONS:
  • To make the homemade lemonade, combine the lemon juice, sugar, and water in a pitcher or other vessel. Stir thoroughly until fully combined.
  • In a mixing glass filled with ice, combine the vodka, Blue Curaçao, and homemade lemonade. Stir for 20 seconds and strain into a cocktail glass.
  • If you’d like the cocktail to be green, add ½ ounce of Midori to the mixing glass, or after adding the dry ice to watch the color change (WARNING: Do not touch dry ice with bare hands, and do not consume the drink until the dry ice has dissolved and finished smoking out).
