Mandalorian-Themed Cocktails?

A group is getting together to watch The Mandalorian. We love having themed cocktails for these gatherings. What should be made?

5 1/2 (!) years ago I posted this question about signature cocktails for a series of Game of Thrones viewing parties.

Now that GoT is over (the seasons got worse but whoa the cocktails got better), we're searching for a new show to fill that void.

We've settled on doing a group watch of The Mandalorian.

I'd love for the tradition of themed cocktails to continue. What would you make?

*PLEASE, NO SHOW SPOILERS IN RECIPES*. Character names are fine, but if we did this for e.g. Empire Strikes Back don't give me a drink called Darth is Luke's Dad.

I don't have any recipes but you could serve your guests Han Solo in carbonite ice cubes for their drinks.

There are some SW names with Gin sort of mentioned. Jyn Urso, Qui-Gon Jinn. Pick your favourite gin recipe. You can stretch a point with Gin-go Fett to make it more Mandalorian relevant. Or Bourbon Fett, same thing.

A Shamrocker, is an actual cocktail, so perhaps make it Shamrocketpack?

Turn Hunter's cocktail into Bounty Hunter's cocktail?

Given that it’s a show about a bounty hunter, maybe drinks with chasers?

Also, if you need food suggestions: Jaegerwürst or salami cacciatore, which are both “hunter style” sausages.

Jägertee (“hunter tea”) is a spiced rum punch mixed with sweet black tea, served warm. Seems like a good cold weather choice.

A simpler version is the Gunfire, equal parts rum and black tea.

The show very much has a "Western" vibe to it, so I'd look at drinks inspired by the American Southwest. This Vagabond has a perfect name, and you could change Cortez the Killer to IG-11 the Killer.

FWIW, the Star Wars Dessert Party at Hollywood Studios features "Galactic Punch, a rum based cocktail with mango syrup and passion fruit juice; the Cosmic Citrus Twist, a vodka based cocktail with watermelon lemonade; the Light Speed Margarita; and finally the Swamp milk, another vodka and melon liqueur concoction." You can also get fun LED "ice cubes".
