"That big-city intermixture is reflected in the sophisticated flavors of the planet's famed Coruscant Cooler, a fruity twist on a classic cocktail. It's no wonder this timeless tipple found its way beyond the infinite skyline of its home-planet."
―Strono Tuggs, The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook[src]

The Coruscant Cooler was a cocktail that originated on Coruscant,[1] a city-covered planet in the Core Worlds,[4] when it was seen as the galaxy's cultural center prior to the Galactic Empire's formation. Based on another classic cocktail, the red-colored beverage was a fruity mix of several alcohols and juices that was served over ice.[1] It was suitable for human consumption.[2]

The drink was served at Oga's Cantina[3] and at Ronto Roasters in Black Spire Outpost on the Outer Rim planet Batuu[2] in 34 ABY.[5] Sometime after the Battle of Takodana[1] in 34 ABY,[4] Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs published a recipe for the beverage in his cookbook The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook. He described its flavors as "sophisticated," and considered the cocktail a reflection of the intermingled cultures and customs of the nearly one trillion inhabitants of Coruscant. In Tuggs' cookbook, the beverage was pictured with a fruit garnish and served with a large ice cube.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

On August 1, 2019, an article on the official Disney Parks Blog announced that Coruscant Coolers would be available at the themed land Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge as a drink exclusive to Disney's Hollywood Studios. The drink debuted on August 29 with the opening of the Disney's Hollywood Studios version of Ronto Roasters,[6] which has no alcoholic options in its Disneyland Park incarnation. The drink was later added to Disneyland's version of Oga's Cantina, which serves alcohol.[7] The menu description of the drink says: "Maker's Mark Bourbon, Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth, Cranberry, Lime Juice."[8]

A recipe for the beverage is included in the 2019 cookbook Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook, which was written by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Marc Sumerak. It is made with the ingredients cranberry juice, bourbon, lime juice, sweet vermouth, and dark cherry puree; the drink is then garnished with a lime wedge and served over a single large ice cube.[1] Coruscant Coolers originated in the Star Wars Legends continuity with the 2004 novel MedStar I: Battle Surgeons, written by Michael Reaves and Steve Perry.[9]
