The Photon Fizzle was a fizzy cocktail characterized by the edible green orbs floating in it. In the days of the Galactic Republic, it was commonly found at diners on Core Worlds. Although popular, the Photon Fizzle lacked sophistication, and was unlikely to be found at classy venues.
Description[edit | edit source]
A carbonated cocktail, the Photon Fizzle was most commonly recognized for the edible, fruity-flavored green orbs that floated in it, giving the alcoholic drink a unique texture. The Photon Fizzle was a popular drink, but its lack of sophistication made it unlikely to be found at fancy locations, such as aboard luxury yachts.
History[edit | edit source]
In the days of the Galactic Republic, the Fizzle was commonly found at diners on Core Worlds, including the ecumenopolis of Coruscant, where it was usually premixed in large vats for easy distribution. Around the start of the Clone Wars, it was notably served at Dexter Jettster's establishment in CoCo Town, Coruscant, for 1.7 credits a serving.
Decades later, during the conflict between the First Order and the Resistance, the Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs served it at Tuggs' Grub, his mobile restaurant which operated out of a modified Sienar-Chall Utilipede Transport. Tuggs and his grub were known to visit Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo in Black Spire Outpost, Batuu. In his cookbook, The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook, Tuggs included his recipes for Photon Fizzle and Dagobah Slug Syrup, a syrup of his creation that was used to sweeten it.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The 2019 recipe book Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook, written by Marc Sumerak and Chelsea Monroe-Cassel, includes an out-of-universe recipe for Photon Fizzle. In the recipe, boba pearls are steeped for an hour in green food coloring gel and Dagobah Slug Syrup, then the green boba is placed in the bottom of a glass. A portion of the previously-used syrup, gin, and fresh lime juice are shaken with ice, then the chilled mixture is strained into the glass and topped off with ginger beer.
