BLOOD MOON ECLIPSE

A deliciously potent cocktail that doesn't require special glasses to enjoy

After seeing the Super Wolf Blood Moon a few days ago (how cool of a name is that?) I decided to find a cocktail that could capture the color and mystique of the moment. I stumbled upon this concoction in an old cocktail book, made a few modifications, and the result was a lunar eclipse in a glass that was smoky, mysterious and strong. Enjoy!
