First ordered in Episode 27 the Supernova packs a punch. It’s a deliciously strong combination of gin, green chartreuse, Campari, and vermouth, and has a beautiful rust-orange color.

The Supernova

Look at that color!

Sweet vermouth is also known as rosso (“red” in Italian) or rouge (“red” in French) vermouth due to its red color. Like its name suggests it brings some sweetness to the drink, preventing it from tasting like pure alcohol.

Green Chartreuse is a beautiful, naturally green liqueur made with over a hundred different botanicals. It’s hard to replicate given its unique flavor, but given its price (often $50-60 a bottle) if you wish to substitute it try a 50/50 mix of elderflower liqueur and absinthe or Jägermeister. It brings some lovely floral and herby notes to this drink and blends wonderfully with the gin.

Campari has a very bitter citrus flavor that is quite similar to grapefruit. It has a beautiful red color and adds a ton of depth to this drink.

Today we bring you the Naboo Sky. It appears in episode 6 during a meeting with Falx. This cocktail is a beautiful shade of blue and packs quite a punch. Based on the classic Water Lily cocktail, the Naboo Sky is a combination of triple sec, lemon juice, gin, and violet liqueur. The brand of violet liqueur used gives it the wonderful blue color, as well as a delightful floral note.

We used a locally distilled gin with heavy citrus and fruity notes that we felt paired well with the violet liqueur. You can use whatever gin you’d like. If you aren’t sure where to start, we recommend a London dry gin.
