A Star Wars cocktail that even non-fans will love, the Baby Yoda has been inspired by the floppy-eared creature in The Mandalorian.
Try it, you must!
“The cuteness is strong in this one.” Ever since Disney released The Mandalorian series, the world was enamored by the baby-like face that is Grogu or Baby Yoda.
Who is Baby Yoda?
That question hasn’t been answered in the series, but there are quite a few possibilities. That cute little creature with the bulging pools for eyes may be a younger relative of Yoda’s, or he might actually be the secret love-child of Yoda and Yaddle. Only the Empire knows.
But Disney’s 50-year old infant Baby Yoda has become so popular that drinks have actually been made honoring him. Take Michael Young’s Baby Yoda Cocktail for instance.
The co-owner of a restaurant called The Vault, Michael created the Baby Yoda Cocktail by mixing together Grey Goose Vodka, muddled kiwi fruit, fresh lime, and demerara syrup. He suggests adding pond apple or swamp apple as well since it tastes like ripe honeydew.
The restaurant located in Banbridge, Northern Ireland had run a special on the cocktail for a few years before Jennifer Aniston made it an Instagram sensation.
Disney’s version is a bit different. Available at Trader Sam’s in Disneyland, it puts together rum, Midori, and pineapple juice to give you a sweeter kick.
And now Baby Yoda Cocktail’s have taken the world by storm, much like many other Disney famous cocktails have done.
What are some other famous Disney Inspired Cocktails?
Well, there are too many to count!

“Drink it, you must!”
Recipe Pointers for the Baby Yoda Cocktail Recipe
- Make sure you dress the margarita glass before you prepare the cocktail. It will be difficult to tie the twine around the full glass later.
- For best effect, use a Glory Margarita Glass.
- Use any piece of string, twine, or yarn to tie Baby Yoda aka The Child’s waist.
- If you find the cocktail too sweet for you, you can simply replace the Malibu with Vanilla Vodka.
- Don’t wait too long before serving the cocktail as it may de-layer again and your Grogu won’t be as green anymore.
- If you want to make something for the kids too, just give them a glass of Green River Soda or Mountain Dew dressed up as Baby Yoda.
