Star Wars Galaxy's Edge : The Drinks From Oga's Cantina

If you’re a “Star Wars” fanatic you probably want to be able to experience almost everything from the franchise at least once. The problem for many right now is being able to get to Disney and check out Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge. On top of that, there are a ton of dining options there to experience. For those who like to drink, Oga’s Cantina is the place to be. But how can you experience all the drinks there without going broke or being tossed out of the park for disorderly conduct?

We’ve got an answer to that for you. Greg from How To Drink managed to be at the park the week after it opened. Not only was he “was thoroughly impressed by Oga’s Cantina” and felt that it was “a fantastic themed environment that really did a great job of capturing the feel of a Star Wars bar or cantina” but more importantly he felt that “the drinks were inventive and fun, and provided awesome presentations.”

He was so taken by the beverages that he has taken four drinks from the menu and shows you how to recreate them in the comfort of your own home. So if you’ve wanted to try (or retry) any of the drinks, not only does he show off four of them in the video but has recipes for a few more too!
