Menkooro whiskey was a red-colored interstellar bourbon that was considered the perfect accompaniment to bruallki. The two were part of an old saying that was sometimes used by smugglers when they were seeking a solution to a problem.
In 9 ABY, several crates of Menkooro were being housed in a storeroom on the Coral Vanda, a luxury casino cruiser that operated in the oceans of Pantolomin. When an Imperial Star Destroyer began firing its turbolasers at the Coral Vanda from Pantolomin's orbit, the crates of Menkooro were knocked open, spilling the whiskey onto the storeroom's floor. Captain Han Solo of the New Republic was present, and fired his blaster into the Menkooro in order to start a fire and escape from a Defel that was attacking him.
Behind the scenesEdit
Menkooro whiskey appeared briefly in Timothy Zahn's 1992 novel Dark Force Rising. After being mentioned in the followup novel, 1993's The Last Command, it received a visual depiction in the comic adaptation of Dark Force Rising, released in 1997.
