Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” hits theaters today, which means this is the perfect time to try out a Chewbacca Frappuccino at Starbucks!

Now, this is not an official drink on the Starbucks menu — it is a Frappuccino that was created by the pop culture fanatics at TotallyTheBomb. The coffee fans at TotallyTheBomb are known for combining their love of movies with their love of Starbucks and creating yummy, cool combos like the Elsa Frappucino and the Buddy the Elf Frappucino.

And now, their latest creation, the Chewbacca Frappuccino, has Starbucks fans lining up to get their hands on this new recipe, which is designed to resemble the Wookiee and his vest.

Check out the Instagram post from TotallyTheBomb about their delicious invention, complete with a side-by-side comparison to the beloved Wookiee himself:

Remember: This is an off-menu item, so you’re going to have to give the barista specific instructions to make sure it turns out looking like Chewbacca.

Here’s how:

Ask for a Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino, which is made with coffee, mocha sauce, vanilla syrup, chocolate chips, milk and ice. Before the barista gets started, be sure to request “caramel drizzle” in your cup, which will add to that tan ombre Wookiee shade (and will make the drink even more delicious).

Once the frothy Frap is ready, it’s topped off with chocolate whipped cream and chocolate cookie crumbles. Ask for some extra cookie crumbles on top to resemble Chewbacca’s furry head.

Below, Instagrammer @mraranico shares how his Chewbacca turned out. Looks like it’s out of this galaxy!

As far as complicated orders go, this one is actually quite simple and won’t throw your barista off their game (sometimes the talented staff members at Starbucks confess to tiring of trendy orders).

Since the Mocha Cookie Crumble Frap is already a standard menu item, all you’re really asking for is a caramel drizzle added to the cup and extra cookie crumbles on top, which means this is a secret menu item that both customers and employees will enjoy.

Once you’ve tasted the Chewbacca Frappuccino, try another Star Wars-flavored drink, the Kylo Ren Frappuccino, made with a Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino, chocolate mocha drizzle and, of course, strawberry puree to pay homage to Kylo Ren’s red lightsaber.

May the caffeine be with you!
