"Despite its decidedly floral notes, the Dagobah Slug Slinger isn't nearly as swampy as you might expect from a drink that originated on Dagobah. That's because it's got a tart citrus base that provides the ideal balance to the slug's sweet, herbaceous ooze."
―Strono Tuggs, The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook[src]

Dagobah Slug Slinger was a cocktail with a strong alcoholic base. It could be sweetened with either the slime of its namesake, the Dagobah swamp slug, or with an imitation syrup, Dagobah Slug Syrup. It was served at Oga's Cantina in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu in 34 ABY. The human spy Vi Moradi drank the beverage there before she attempted to recruit for the Resistance. Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs included recipes for the cocktail and syrup in his cookbook, The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook.

Description[edit | edit source]

"The strong flavors also do a nice job of smoothin' out the equally strong portion of booze it contains. But don't be fooled—this one has more kick to it than a master of Teräs Käsi!"
―Strono Tuggs, The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook[src]

The Dagobah Slug Slinger was a green-colored cocktail named after swamp slugs,[2] a native species of the swamp planet Dagobah.[4] The large slugs secreted saccharine slime with fragrant notes from the herbs they had digested, and the slime was used to sweeten desserts and drinks. The cocktail's combination of sweet and herbaceous slime plus a tart citrus juice base masked its strong alcoholic content, which was said to have a stronger kick than a master of the martial art Teräs Käsi. The drink was garnished with a sprig of an herb.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

The cocktail was served at Oga's Cantina in Black Spire Outpost on the Outer Rim planet Batuu[1] in 34 ABY.[5] The cantina sweetened the drink with slime from swamp slugs that lived[6] in tanks along the bar back.[3]

One night in 34 ABY,[7] Vi Moradi, a human female and Resistance spy, visited the cantina with her Batuuan coworkers after her first day's work for Savi & Son Salvage. Following her coworker Ylena's recommendation, Moradi started the night by imbibing a Dagobah Slug Slinger. After she bought the second round of drinks, she unsuccessfully attempted to recruit her new acquaintances for the Resistance.[3]

Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs created an imitation syrup, Dagobah Slug Syrup, to use as a slime substitute when lacking a supply of slugs.[2] Sometime after the Battle of Takodana in 34 ABY,[8] Tuggs published his cookbook, The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook, which included recipes for his imitation syrup and the Dagobah Slug Slinger.[2]

The drink at a real-world Oga's Cantina

Dagobah Slug Slinger is one of the alcoholic beverages sold to customers in the real-world Oga's Cantina bar in the themed land Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. It was officially announced to the public on February 27, 2019 in an article on the website D23: The Official Disney Fan Club,[9] and debuted for guests to purchase when the land opened in Disneyland Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios in 2019.[10] The menu's description reads, "Herradura Reposado Tequila, Bols Blue Curaçao, Citrus Juices, Ginger, Herbs, and Bitters."[11]

It is made with the ingredients Dagobah Slug Syrup, lime juice, orange juice, blue curaçao, tequila, and water.
