Even if you've got the death penalty on 12 systems, you can always settle down to enjoy a tasty cocktail at the bar before your buddy's arm is sliced off with a lightsaber.

Did you know that the cantina at Mos Eisley spaceport on Tatooine has a secret drink menu? Yes, even alien outposts like Mos Eisley can't help but take a note from Starbucks and Taco Bell on our planet. This little-known fun fact about the menu is revealed in an upcoming book from Epic Ink, Star Wars: Smuggler's Guide.

Officially, written by Daniel Wallace (Book of Sith: Secrets from the Dark Side), the publication—found in a lock box on the Millennium Falcon—is a collection of outlaw-related guidance from such scruffy-looking nerf herders as Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, Drydon Vos, Maz Kanata, and more.

We had to shell out more than a few credits, but were able to get our hands on two pages from the book, which reveal the best practices for galactic cantinas, mainly Chalmun's on Tatooine. That's the place where Han shot Greedo, and where he was hired by Luke and Obi-Wan Kenobi in A New Hope.

Sure, the joint serves such classic thirst-quenchers as Red Dwarfs and Flameouts, but if you place an order for a Nova Blaster and ask them to substitute Savareen brandy for the Corellian stuff, you'll get escorted behind the bar and into the establishment's illicit black market weapons cache.

Corellia is the homeworld of Han Solo, where he grew up as a thief for the White Worm, Lady Proxima. He later escaped this wretched life and became a pilot for the Empire before casting his lot in with a bunch of smugglers working for Crimson Dawn. This resulted in Han making the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, his final destination being Savareen, a planet equipped to refine coaxium (aka starship fuel).

Star Wars: Smuggler's Guide goes on sale Nov. 13.
