(NEXSTAR) – Not too long ago and set in a very, very close galaxy, Disney unveiled the latest menu item from the “Star Wars” themed lounge on the new Disney Wish cruise ship. And it comes with a price tag that can break the Jar Jar banks.

This week, some special guests got a taste of Disney’s newest boat, including the Hyperspace Lounge, decked out in a galactic decor. While the 1,119-foot ship offers a variety of other attractions, a cocktail on the Hyperspace Lounge menu received most of the spotlight.

It’s called the Kaiburr crystal — and it costs $5,000.

The Kaiburr crystal (named after a relic in the universe) is actually four potions, according to Nexstar’s Scott Gustin, who was aboard this week’s special sneak peek. He confirmed the content of the cocktail

  • Camus Cognac 4.16
  • Yuzu and kumquat
  • Grand Mariner Quintessence

Three shots:

  • Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 23-Year-Old Bourbon
  • Taylor’s Kingsman Edition Very Old Tawny Port
  • Watenshi gin

All this is housed in a camtono – a cylindrical storage box seen in the “Star Wars” universe.

However, the price of the Kaiburr Crystal does not only include the drink. The $5,000 also comes with a specially themed escort from the ship — in addition to a visit to Skywalker Ranch, the workplace of “Star Wars” mastermind George Lucas. The rural campus is 40 minutes north of San Francisco.

The Hyperspace Lounge cocktail isn’t the only place to find a crystal as coveted as the Kaiburr: a real crystal necklace can be found in one of the Wish stores. The price? $3.9 million.

The Wish will make its maiden voyage on July 14 from Port Canaveral, Florida, to its destination, Disney’s private island in the Bahamas.
