Solar Eclipse Cocktail

Transforming the Solar Eclipse mocktail into a cocktail is simple and brings an elegant twist by substituting orange juice with Triple Sec. This adjustment introduces a sophisticated citrusy sweetness and a slight alcoholic kick, enhancing the overall flavor profile.

#### Ingredients:

- 1 cup lemonade (chilled)

- 1/2 cup Triple Sec

- 1 lemon slice

- Honey (for rimming the glass)

- Ice cubes

#### Equipment:

- Small plates (for the honey and sugars)

- A serving glass

#### Instructions:

1. Prepare the Lemon Slice:

- Soak the lemon slice in either blue Kool-Aid powder mixed with a little water or in blackberry simple syrup for about 30 minutes to 1 hour to give it a vibrant blue or deep purple hue, reminiscent of the eclipse's shadow.

2. Prepare the Glass:

- Pour a thin layer of honey onto a small plate. On another small plate, spread out the yellow sanding sugar.

- Dip the rim of your serving glass first into the honey to lightly coat it, then into the yellow sanding sugar to create a beautiful, sun-like rim.

3. Mix the Cocktail:

- In a cocktail shaker, combine the lemonade and Triple Sec with a few ice cubes. Shake well until the mixture is chilled.

- Strain the cocktail into your prepared glass, filled with ice, careful not to disturb the sugared rim.

4. Final Touch:

- Gently place the soaked lemon slice atop the drink to mimic the dark silhouette of the moon.

- Sprinkle a pinch of blue sanding sugar over the top of the cocktail to add a sparkling effect, evoking the solar corona's elusive beauty during an eclipse.

5. Serve:
