Solar Eclipse Mocktail

This visually stunning mocktail, dubbed the Solar Eclipse, captures the awe-inspiring beauty of an eclipse. It combines the tangy flavors of lemonade and orange juice with the unique twist of a lemon slice soaked in blue Kool-Aid or blackberry simple syrup, all beautifully presented in a glass rimmed with yellow sanding sugar and topped with blue sanding sugar for that celestial effect.

#### Ingredients:

- 1 cup lemonade (chilled)

- 1/2 cup orange juice (chilled)

- 1 lemon slice

- Blue Kool-Aid powder or blackberry simple syrup

- Blue sanding sugar

- Yellow sanding sugar

- Honey (for rimming the glass)

- Ice cubes

#### Equipment:

- Cocktail shaker

- Small plates (for the honey and sugars)

- A serving glass

#### Instructions:

1. Prepare the Lemon Slice:

- Soak the lemon slice in blue Kool-Aid powder mixed with a little water or in blackberry simple syrup for about 30 minutes to 1 hour. This will give the lemon slice a vibrant blue or deep purple hue, mimicking the dark silhouette of the moon.

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, ensuring it's lightly coated, then into the yellow sanding sugar to create a beautifully rimmed effect that resembles the sun's corona.

3. Mix the Mocktail:

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

- Strain the mocktail into your prepared glass, filled with ice, avoiding disturbing the sugar rim.

4. Final Touch:

- Carefully place the soaked lemon slice atop the drink.

- Sprinkle a pinch of blue sanding sugar over the top of the mocktail for that final touch of sparkle, simulating the elusive beauty of the solar corona during an eclipse.

5. Serve:

- Serve immediately and enjoy the refreshing taste of this Solar Eclipse mocktail while admiring its aesthetic appeal that captures the essence of a solar eclipse.

Enjoy your Solar Eclipse mocktail, a drink that's not only refreshing but also a feast for the eyes!
