  • ¾ ounce pineapple juice

  • Ice
  • Lime wedges, blueberries, brown sandwich bag, and twine for garnish

  4. Strain into chilled glass.
  5. Garnish with two symmetrical lime wedges on the sides. Pierce two blueberries on a cocktail skewer, spaced apart to resemble eyes. Wrap sandwich bag around stem and tie in place with twine.

Variations and Substitutions

Just like the renowned Baby Yoda himself, there are so many ways to change up this cocktail without losing the look.

  • Instead of coconut rum, opt for vodka as a base. You can use storebought coconut or even homemade coconut-infused vodka if you want that coconut flavor.
  • Spin your Baby Yoda drink into a melon margarita, using tequila instead of coconut rum and skipping the pineapple juice in favor of orange liqueur. Go ahead and use freshly squeezed lime juice instead of lime cordial.
  • Give the green a paler color by using cream of coconut instead of pineapple juice.
  • Skip the pineapple juice and top your cocktail off with lemon-lime soda or, if you used plain vodka, a little bit of prosecco.

Garnishes

Without the signature ears, eyes, and sack, the Baby Yoda cocktail doesn't quite look the same, but you can still make a few modifications.

  • Instead of lime wedges, use lime slices. You can also use lemon slices or wedges in a pinch.
  • For the eyes, a small, round garnish works best. Black olives or blackberries make great options.
  • Use parchment paper instead of a brown sandwich bag. You can also trim a larger brown paper bag to fit the glass.
  • Serve the cocktail in a highball glass, adding boba at the end to mimic the much-coveted frog eggs.
