Poe Dameron is the leader of Black Squadron, the team of X-Wing T-70 fighters to feature in Star Wars The Force Awakens this Christmas.

As the grizzled Black Leader, Poe Dameron will need a stiff drink to unwind after a hard day’s space battle dogfighting the First Order in his Resistance X-Wing.

I’ve played on the naval references in most space movies a little and chosen the Painkiller Cocktail for Poe Dameron from Sauce Guide to Cocktails Vol. 4 (slightly modified), which is a grown up take on the Pina Colada but with serious bite from the Navy rum.

Poe Dameron Cocktail ingredients:

  • 1 1/2oz  (45ml) Navy Rum
  • 1 1/2oz (45ml) Pineapple Juice
  • 1/2oz (15ml) Orange Juice
  • 1/2oz (15ml) Cream of Coconut

Shake the ingredients with ice and strain over ice in a collins glass.

Star Wars The Force Awakens opens in cinemas everywhere in Mid November 2015. I make no copyright claims, all characters mentioned are property of their respective owners.
