Drink Recipe: Oga’s Cantina’s T-16 Skyhopper
Make your favorite Cantina cocktails at home!
If you’re looking for a unique drink that could easily be from another galaxy, this is the one for you! It has an interesting combination of kiwi, melon, and half and half that makes it different from the typical cocktail. You wouldn’t find something like this anywhere other than Oga’s Cantina!
We modified the Diznify T-16 Skyhopper copycat recipe a bit to make it without using kiwi syrup. If you do have access to kiwi syrup, you’ll likely get a stronger kiwi flavor than if you use kiwi juice.
Recipe inspired by Diznify
Yields one cocktail
4 ounces half and half
Juice of one kiwi
½ ounce simple syrup
1 ½ ounces vodka
1 ½ ounces melon liqueur
1 slice kiwi with skin removed to garnish
Remove the skin of the kiwi and cut one slice to use for garnish
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice
Squeeze the juice from the rest of the kiwi into the cocktail shaker. Add in the remains of the kiwi as well (will be strained out later)
Add the half and half, melon liqueur, simple syrup, and vodka to the shaker
Shake until combined and cold
Strain into a glass filled with ice and garnish with a slice of kiwi
The drink is slightly reminiscent of the blue and green milk in Galaxy’s Edge, so it fits in well with the rest of Batuu. I do wish this drink had a bit more flavor. The half and half takes over the flavor profile of the drink and it ends up being pretty milky with a slight flavor of kiwi and melon. We didn’t have kiwi syrup on hand, which is probably why the flavor was lacking. We suggest finding kiwi syrup so the cocktail will have a stronger flavor.
