Lunar Shadow

As we reminisce about awe-inspiring cosmic phenomena, such as the unforgettable solar eclipse of 2017, it’s only fitting that we pair these wonders of nature with a corresponding drink, or invent one if it doesn’t yet exist.

Fortunately, for the solar eclipse, we have the Lunar Shadow cocktail, a creation by bartender Kyle Hagerty from The Drawing Room hotel in Tennessee, crafted especially to celebrate this extraordinary event.

1 oz / 30 ml Vodka
1 oz / 30 ml Fresh Orange Juice
1/2 oz / 15 ml Aperol
1/2 oz / 15 ml Triple Sec
Sparkling Mineral Water or Club Soda
Dark-colored Berry Juice

Freeze the berry juice into a large round ice mold.
Mix vodka, orange juice, Aperol, and Triple Sec in the chilled highball glass.
Stir briefly. Add the ice mold.
Fill with mineral water or club soda.

Highball glass

With a Lunar Shadow in hand, you’re not only prepared to toast to celestial wonders but also to embark on your own cosmic journey, one sip at a time.
