There’s a million different fake holidays on the calendar, but when we saw this one, we knew we had to celebrate. Why is today Star Wars Day? Wait for it… wait for it…”May the Fourth Be With You.”

Oh well, we laughed.

In the various Star Wars movies, it’s clear that many characters like to drink… and for that, we salute them. If you go to the Star Wars wiki, there are a ton of different pages just about what they liked to drink and how much they did it. We don’t want to bore you with too much geekiness though, so we thought we’d focus on some drinks you could make at home to celebrate. Here are some of our favorite Star Wars-themed cocktails:
