The drink menu for the Hyperspace Lounge aboard the Disney Wish has been revealed, and it includes a very pricey item called the Kaliburr Crystal. Passengers of the Triton-class cruise ship will have to pay $5,000 to try the drink, which has been described as the “galaxy’s rarest and valuable cocktail.” It’s unclear what’s in the Kaliburr Crystal, but Fanbyte has speculated that it could be Louis XIII cognac, something that seems to run around $4,000 for a single bottle, and possibly with a single drop of Johnnie Walker Diamond Jubilee ($200/k per bottle). A video shared by a journalist with Spectrum News 13 can reveal that the Kaliburr Crystal is served in a camtono (a security container that can be seen in shows such as The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett) that opens up with smoke effects. Other drinks served on the Hyperspace Lounge include The Flight of Skywalker ($50), Mustafarian Black Ale ($10), and Hyperful ($250).

I am no fool (well, I am), obviously just putting a drink with that kind of price tag is marketing fodder for outraged dorks on the internet. I’m obviously participating in this. But I can’t help but be a little bit intrigued by what, precisely, Mickey’s almost-certainly-underpaid cruise ship worker/Star Wars bartender will be slinging in a souvenir cup for, I don’t know, wealthy Dallas-area orthodontist parents on vacation. What will constitute that particular level of Disney-fied excess?
It’s equally possible that the drink is just general top shelf liquor with some kind of valuable, limited edition, crystal cup with goofy Star Wars branding and a light up ice cube. Picture something like this $1,710 Artel Forest Folly Crystal, but with a Porg or whatever, and we’ve arrived at a $5,000 product. Get you a Kaiburr Crystal Cocktail! Maclunkey!
