Disney+ has been out for a few months now, and there's one piece of original content that remains at the top of pop culture. That's right, I'm talking about the live-action Star Wars show The Mandalorian. Mando's journey through the galaxy has gone viral due to the inclusion of The Child aka Baby Yoda. Every new episode inspires countless memes of The Child, despite its lack of merchandise for the Holiday Season. But The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal just made his own, specifically with a holiday cocktail.

Pedro Pascal is known for his TV work, especially Game of Thrones and Narcos. He's currently playing the title character of The Mandalorian, although we technically haven't seen the actor's face beneath the helmet. Pascal recently made himself a special Baby Yoda themed cocktail for Christmas, check it out below.

Honestly, I'm impressed. While the lime ears were enough to make a cute illusion, there was clearly a ton of specificity and work to craft Yoda's face and clothes from that mysterious cocktail.

The above image comes to us from Pedro Pascal's personal Instagram page. The Mandalorian star wished followers a happy holiday season. And he's got a way to help make those awkward family dinners more fun: adult beverages. And what's a more appropriate cocktail choice than one that looks like the show's biggest scene stealer? Make my Baby Yoda drink a double, please.

Star Wars fans can catch every adorable Baby Yoda moment on Disney+. You can use this link for a free 7-day trial to the new streaming service.

The drink itself looks like a martini, although it's been customized to more closely resemble The Mandalorian's Baby Yoda. Lime wedges are used to give The Child his signature ears, but there's a few other garnishes are used to help complete the look. A pair of olives are used to give the little guy eyes, and it looks like there's also a cherry at the bottom of the glass as a mouth.

While that's all adorable, it's the Baby Yoda drink's clothes that really put Pedro Pascal's post over the top for me. He wrapped a brown napkin around the stem of the glass to represent The Child's signature clothes. He then uses a white cocktail napkin to form a belt that gives him a waist. Because Baby Yoda deserves to have a silhouette, just like the rest of us.

It should be interesting to see how The Mandalorian's first season ends, and how Baby Yoda's story continues on the new Disney+ series. The Child clearly has a connection to The Force, as he's got some power in him. But plenty of shady characters are after him, so Mando is going to have to try and protect the little green guy. Maybe The Child will be the reason why the protagonist finally takes off his helmet.

The Mandalorian is currently available to stream on Disney+, and there is one more episode left in the show's first season. In the meantime, check out our midseason premiere list to plan your next binge watch.
