What is a Baby Yoda Cocktail?

The Baby Yoda cocktail is a kiwi-flavoured vodka-based martini that will surely be a hit. It also comes with various options. If Vodka Martinis aren’t your thing, make a Baby Yoda Margarita with tequila instead.   

Making this cocktail is child’s play, and the trickiest part is dressing it up to look like the adorable character in The Mandalorian.   

Baby Yoda Cocktail ingredients

You’re going to dress up your coupe glass before you make the cocktail, but let’s cover the most important part first: Baby Yoda cocktail ingredients! 

How to make your Baby Yoda Cocktail look like Baby Yoda

Now for the fun part! To dress your cocktail glass like Baby Yoda, you will need hessian or brown paper, another kiwi fruit, a small cocktail stick, and some grapes or olives.  

  1. Cut the kiwi fruit in half, lengthwise, and then cut it into wedges. These will be the little guy’s ears. 
  2. Wrap the hessian or brown paper around the stem of the glass—that’s his outfit. 
  3. Finally, skewer two grapes or olives into the middle of a small cocktail stick and balance it on the rim of the glass—these will be his eyes. 

And that is it! So, come on, baby! Do the magic hand thing, and whip up this cute drink. After a couple of these, your friends will think you’re a Jedi Knight. 

Mocktail alternative

We’d never be forgiven if we didn’t give you a kid-friendly version of this trendy drink. Turning the Baby Yoda cocktail recipe into a mocktail is simple. To make Baby Yoda juice, mix together lime cordial, ginger beer and lemonade. Dress up some plastic glasses and add the ‘juice’. If it’s not as green as you’d like it to be, go ahead and add some green food colouring.   

Go ahead and have some fun with it!   

We have spoken.
