How to Plan a Star Wars Themed Date Night

 

Today is the final date night of my Date Night in series. Its long over due so thanks for sticking around!  These have been really fun to share with you, so this series will be continuing one every month! 

This one was fun. We have recently really gotten into Star Wars, and we wanted to start rewatching again so a Star Wars Date Night In was perfect. When Disney acquired the franchise I decided it was time to at least watch them and to my surprise I enjoyed them. I actually remember seeing one as a kid with my Dad and falling asleep in the theatre. I can follow them so much easier now. 

I fell in love with all the droids in the movies but my favorite is the newest droid the the franchise BB-8. Our cocktail for the evening was inspired by him. Because of our entree choice I went with a Margarita. I wanted a blood orange margarita but had a hard time finding a mix. So I went with Bai bubbles Jamaican blood orange. Here is the recipe I used, it makes 2 drinks. 

3oz tequila

1 oz triple sec 

Juice of 3 limes 

3oz of coconut water 

1 can of Bai Bubbles Jamaican Blood orange 

Mix all the ingredients except for the Bai into shaker, and mix. Pour into glass and top with the Bai Blood Orange and serve. These were really good but I’m not sure it tasted like blood orange. Actually they almost had a peachy flavor which I liked but my husband wasn’t a fan of because he doesn’t care much for peach. 

For dinner we created Dark Side Nachos.  Blue Corn Tortilla Chips, Seasoned ground beef, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and taco sauce. We are kind of picky but of course you can also add lettuce, tomato, salsa, onion whatever you would like.  I tried to create a storm trooper out of the sour cream and I failed miserably so this was the end result.

We also enjoyed light saber Churros and Edible Ewoks. The churros were the other half of the bag from Trader Joe’s. I used red sugar mixed with cinnamon for these. You can never go wrong with a churro and they were the perfect dessert to the nachos. To add another fun movie treat we enjoyed some “Edible Ewoks.”

 

We made it through 2 of the movies the day of our date. We watched Episode 1 The Phantom Menace during nap time and then had our date night with Episode 2 Attack of the Clones. If we had an entire day we might have been able to make it through several more. We have the others ready to watch as we recorded them all on May the Fourth. We are hoping to get to sit down and enjoy the rest over the next few weeks. Life with a toddler is for sure busy so it may take a while. Which of the Star Wars movies is your favorite?
