Star Wars has brought us cinema and stories wrapped in grandeur and larger-than-life imagination. The industry that is thriving in the business of make-believe has established itself firmly as the root of all scientists’ dreams and all dreamer’s fantasies. Starting with the galaxy far, far away, the universe has brought so much into our lives and yet the galaxy feels barely touched upon.

With that in mind, the Star Wars family has come up with their latest concoction of an Obi-Wan Kenobi-themed root beer float complete with a step-by-step recipe of the blue-dyed seltzer soda topped with vanilla ice-cream drink, and all in time for the National Root Beer Float Day on August 6.

Created by the lifestyle and food writer, Jenn Fujikawa, the new recipe is already going viral. It started when fans began hilariously subtweeting the Star Wars official Twitter post about drinking the Bacta water and like the fandom-respecting industry that it is, Star Wars has replied with a root beer float recipe captioned, “It’s good for what ails you — including wampa attacks.”
