The Vampire's Eclipse

Happy Thursday and welcome to Ladies Night at The Slow Roasted Italian! As All Hallows Eve closes in, we are celebrating Ladies Night with a ghoulish delight.

The Vampire Eclipse is a special treat created just for you by the count himself deep in the castle's lair.  The count worked feverishly to capture the essence and magic of the suns eclipse.  A dark river of grenadine rests on the bottom of the glass, while repelling the suns burst of orange energy, trapping a cherry between day and night.  The light rum entombs this moment forever.

Original recipe developed by Chad of The Slow Roasted Italian 

The Vampire's Eclipse
1/2 ounce grenadine
1/2 ounce orange juice
1 ounce light rum (Bacardi)
1 maraschino cherry

Gently pour grenadine in shot glass first.  Then slowly pour in the orange juice (pour down the side of the glass to avoid mixing your layers).  Slowly lower the cherry through the orange juice to rest on the grenadine.  Lastly, add rum pouring it down the side of your glass.

Serve and enjoy!
