LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Golden Tiki bar in Chinatown on Spring Mountain Road in Las Vegas has created a drink inspired by Baby Yoda.
People all over the world have lost their minds over the tiny star of "The Mandalorian" on Disney Plus.
Even though Baby Yoda is only a fictional character and a puppet, fans are obsessed and spend hours talking about him, pouring over gifs and memes, and looking for anything with Baby Yoda on it to buy or make.

According to scientists at the University of Oxford, it's almost impossible to ignore the cuteness of babies and that cuteness also triggers protective responses. That explains what happened to Mando in the series and what is also happening to people who are watching at home.
Back to the drink though.
The official name is Do Or Do Not Daiquiri and its made with Rhum agricole, demerara syrup and fresh lime juice, finished with a spritz of absinthe. Bartenders are using Luxardo cherries for the eyes and lime wedges as ears. A bar napkin is fashioned into a Jedi robe for the glass, tied with a piece of twine. A bar straw represents a light saber.
The drink was created by lead mixologist Adam Rains. It costs $15.
