With Walt Disney set to take a big cut of ticket sales for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, theaters showing the film are coming up with unusual ways to boost their profits.

The movie opens on Dec. 18, and theaters are partnering with Araca Group, which helps live theaters shows sell merchandise, to hawk various “Star Wars”-related items, according to Bloomberg.

Items will include hats, t-shirts, and bags—along with food and drinks. A theater chain called Studio Movie Grill will sell “Yoda-rita” cocktails with Sauza Blue Reposado tequila and “Tatooine Sunrise Mimosas,” as confirmed to Fortune. The chain, however, said photos of the Yoda-rita are not yet available.

Other drinks on the menu include the Millennium Falcon, which is made with Captain Morgan spiced rum, and the Death Star Bloody Mary, among others.

Studio Movie Grill also told Fortune it will sell cinnamon “Princess Leia Buns” and a “C3PO-Melette Pizza.”

Fortune has reached out to Disney for comment, too.

In September, Fortune estimated that Star Wars: The Force Awakens could bring in as much as $2 billion around the world.
