Super Moon Bloody Mary

 

This weekend we have another fabulous skyward experience, a combination of a super moon, harvest moon, and a total lunar eclipse. This is a very rare event so watch it while you have the chance. If that isn’t a reason to celebrate, I don’t know what is! To learn more about the Supermoon Eclipse check out NASA’s coverage.

To celebrate this momentous occasion I created the Super Moon Bloody Mary for this week’s cocktail recipe. The reason being that part of the event, the lunar eclipse, will make the moon appear red which is often called a “blood moon”. The “moon” in this drink is the ice ball. You can find molds to make this large circle ice cubes at many stores – I thought it was perfect for this week’s cocktail!

Side note – this is also a great cocktail for Halloween!

You can use your favorite Bloody Mary recipe of course. In case you don’t have one though, here is my take on this classic cocktail.

Will you be watching the big event this Sunday night? How does the Super Moon Bloody Mary sound to sip on while watching it?
