Eclipse Party

Despite my brave words about being in the moment [Eclipse Safety], I gave in to the temptation to pick up a camera during totality. But then, ‘How do I turn this into a blog post?’ is hardly an unusual thought for me.


Thematically appropriate food & drink, plus champagne. I don’t drink much these days, but I’d have this again, The French 75 Cocktail is a Favorite Champagne Recipe. Our “eclipse version” had cognac instead of gin and St. Germain instead of simple syrup.

Label is horologically accurate for the east coast.
