 Bantha Milk

Bantha Milk

  • 1 oz of amaretto
  • 2 oz of blue curacao

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake for 20-30 seconds until chilled.
  2. Serve in a chilled glass.

For a non-alcoholic version:

  • Almond milk for the amaretto, which can also take the place of the normal milk.
  • Coconut water for the rum
  • Dilute a little orange juice with a bit of water and add blue food coloring for the curacao. Or, you could take a scoop of orange sherbet and combine it with the food coloring for more of a float style drink.
