Disney has just updated their online menu for the Milk Stand in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the update confirms what we exclusively reported – that there will be alcoholic versions of Blue Milk and Green Milk! Here’s your first look at the pricing and ingredients.
Blue Milk Cooler – $14
Plant-based Dairy blend of Coconut and Rice Milk with alluring fruity characteristics featuring Bacardi Rum
Green Milk Cooler – $14
Plant-based Dairy blend of Coconut and Rice Milk with zippy Citrus and tropical characteristics featuring Corazon Blanco Tequila
While they both add a splash of alcohol, they are still a plant-based dairy blend, as seen in the Disneyland version of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
The Milk Stand is your one stop shop for all things Blue and Green Milk.
Ever since we first saw Luke Skywalker take a sip of Blue Milk on Tatooine, we’ve been intrigued by the drink. Star Wars is made up of such fantastical elements from planets to aliens to the language, that Blue Milk seemed like such a natural fit. Of course, Disney couldn’t just add some blue coloring to regular milk and expect it to be anywhere near refreshing. As a matter of fact, when asked about the Blue Milk that he drank on the set of Star Wars: A New Hope, actor Mark Hamill described the drink as “oily and sweet…really ghastly”.
Disney, presumably, didn’t want to serve anything that could even possibly receive that kind of review in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, but they may have created something too true to the source material to be enjoyable. Disney didn’t go with a dairy drink here, instead opting for a plant-based drink. What Disney and Lucasfilm Story Group members created were two frozen, plant-based beverages that worked off of a base of coconut and rice milks. Disney was looking to appeal to a wide range of guests by going for a vegan drink, and that should be applauded if they can get the execution right.
