Just in time for National Root Beer Float Day on August 6, this bacta tank is filled with refreshing blue root beer and topped off with a curative scoop of cold-as-Hoth ice cream. Nothing makes you feel more like your old self than an invigorating swig of restorative root beer.

Bacta Tank Float

You’ll need:

Bacta tank Luke printout from (approximately 6-inches depending on glass size)

An empty bottle, a glass of blue liquid and a lightsaber stirrer.


12 ounces root-beer flavored seltzer soda (clear)

Blue food gel dye

Vanilla ice cream

How to:

Print out the Luke in a bacta tank image to fit your glass. Printing the image darker helps it show through.

Tape the image to the back outside of the glass. Set aside.

In a container mix the root beer flavored seltzer soda with a touch of blue food gel dye. Pour into the glass, top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to serve.

Han Solo, Princess Leia, and C-3PO watch Luke Skywalker in the Bacta Tank.
