It’s here! A movie solely about Han Solo, one of the most beloved characters from the Star Wars franchise. And the first thing we thought was to celebrate with what we know best, all things liquor. Even if you end up not liking the movie, you’re definitely going to enjoy yourself.
Go drink a Solo themed cocktail: You heard that right, AMC Theatres’ MacGruffins Bar & Lounge has created ‘The Scoundrel’ especially for the release of the movie. Made with the premium Crystal Head Vodka, blue curacao, lemonade and Chambord, it looks like it’s straight from outer space. If you’re lucky enough to be around, the drink is available for a very limited time, so make a beeline straight there.
Make a cocktail tribute to the OG Hans Solo: During this time when Hans finally gets his dues, we shouldn’t be forgetting Harrison Ford, who gave life to the character onscreen. Plus this drink is absolutely delish!
- 44 ml coffee liqueur
- 89 ml Irish cream
- 66 ml vodka

Get yourself some Star Wars-themed ice: You know what’s better than whipping up cocktails in honour of the movie? It’s being able to add in Millenium Falcon-shaped ice pieces in your drink to look all fancy and shit. Yes, your dreams have come true, you can actually get Millenium Falcon shaped molds so all your parties will now subtly display your love for the franchise. You can find them at Boing Boing Store.
Play some Star Wars beer pong: This has less to do with the game than the cups it’s played in. Of course, a sense of humour runs amok in the Solo: A Star Wars Story team, because they recently partnered with Solo Cups. Yep, so get your cousin ke chacha ka NRI neighbour to send a package down from the US. You definitely need this.
Play a Star Wars drinking game: It’s unheard of to go watch a movie of the Star Wars franchise without doing an entire marathon prior to it. You’ve just got to! And what could make this even better is a drinking game tailored just for you, the Star Wars geek. You can find a great one at Supercall. Tell us how it went!
