Stormtrooper armor will be getting a vibrant upgrade when Sith troopers make their onscreen debut later this year. Little is known about these crimson curiosities, so for now we can only speculate on what these troopers’ duties will entail. What we do know is that these ceramic tiki versions from Geeki Tikis have a very specific task: to quench your thirst on the sweetest day of the year, National Root Beer Float Day!
August 6 is a day to celebrate the beloved creamy frozen drink, and this version — inspired by the trooper itself — is made with a DIY bubbly red root beer. Top it all off with custom made red chocolate trooper buckets and your tasty treat is ready to serve.
See the Sith troopers for yourself when Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens in theaters this December!
Sith Trooper Root Beer Float
- 5 ounces red candy melts
- 1 stormtrooper silicone mold
Root beer ingredients:
- 1 cup water
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon root beer extract
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- red food gel dye
- 1 liter club soda
- 1 Sith trooper tiki
- ice cream
- whipped cream
- red candies
Step 1: Place the candy melts in a heat-safe bowl and microwave at 15-20 second intervals until melted. Spoon evenly into the silicone mold, tapping to release excess air bubbles. Place in the freezer to set.
Step 2: In a saucepan over medium-high heat, stir the water and sugar together and bring to a simmer until the sugar dissolves. Turn off the heat and stir in the root beer extract, vanilla extract, and red food gel dye. Refrigerate until cold.
Step 3: Stir the simple syrup mixture with the club soda to combine.
Step 4: Remove the stormtrooper chocolates from the mold.
Step 5: Scoop the ice cream into the tiki, and pour over some of the root beer.
Step 6: Top with whipped cream, candies, and the stormtrooper chocolates, to serve.
