Super Moon Bloody Mary Cocktail - Sip on this during the Supermoon Eclipse | RobynsOnlineWorld.com

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?

I have always wanted to try a Bloody Mary but never have. I know I would like this drink. I will have to watch for the Supermoon Eclipse on Sunday!

There are several premade mixes for Bloody Mary’s available too – you just add vodka.

You make these the right way! If you had the word ‘mix’ there I would have backed out :) This is one of the few drinks I enjoy if it is made with real juice. I aalso like a pickle or olives in mine or a ceelery stick. Yep we wiill be looking at the moon!

Mixes are handy, but never as good as making them from scratch!

I haven’t had a Bloody Mary in many years. I hope I will be up to watch or see it, I retire early most nights because of my schedule. I would not mind drinking this during the eclipse :)

It’s going to start a little after 9pm CT so it’s not one of those super late events at least.

Very fun drink! Our university’s planetarium is hosting a viewing, so we hope to watch the supermoon eclipse there.

Very fun! I’m sure some of the local skywatching clubs around here will have some free viewing parties too – I may go to one of those even.

I have never tried Bloody Mary. Sounds good.

I have never been able to enjoy tomato juice (though I love tomatoes and tomato sauce), but I have a family member who would love this!
