What to serve during a 'Blood Moon' Lunar Eclipse. .

Thinking of Blood Orange Marg's and brownies. .

Got any ideas for me?

  1. I personally enjoy a serving of apocalypse! JK, blood orange margaritas seem very appropriate. Or red beer! I like the Mexican version, it has lime in it as well as tomato juice (or clamato).

    1. Espresso--how else are you supposed to stay up for it? :) Spike it with Grand Marnier to get your orange/blood component in there.

      1. Mozzarella moons with Agnolotti in a tomato sauce.
        Baked white pumpkin filled with ... a red soup?

        And a "trendy" one -- red velvet cake pops in white chocolate glaze.

        1. Stir fried pork's blood with sliced ginger and scallions.

          1. I find that good cheese and crackers complements most celestial phenomena.

            1. Oh, DUH...why are we even making this complicated? Crack a Blue Moon and serve with a slice of orange. Brownie optional, because why not?!

                  1. Chinese blood and rice cakes, bonus points if you buy the circular ones.

                    1. WOW..what a show!
                      The stars were out big time and the blood orange of the moon rocked the casbah.

                      Was outside with Bigfoot and the crew and was gonna crack open a Stella but didn't need nuthin' with nature's show.

                      Loved all of your suggestions!

                        I set my alarm but woke up to cloud cover and drizzle. Bummer, maybe the next one.
