The New Moon Cocktail.

Still can't get over how cool last night's solar eclipse was? Turns out, the solar eclipse overshadowed one other notable movement in astrology — the new moon eclipse. And who better to think of a cocktail to celebrate the monumental event that the Intoxicated Zodiac?

Gwen Sutherland Kaiser, aka the Intoxicated Zodiac, predicts cocktail news and astrology, a growing trend. And there's no better event to drink to than the solar and new moon eclipse last night. This year's solar eclipse highlighted when the new moon passed over the sun, creating the "ring of fire." But Kaiser explains the astrological significance of the event — meaning, the moon's ruling power of the Cancer sign, and the moon's move into Gemini. It's a tune "jam-packed with the potential for change," she says.

The New Moon cocktail is special to those Cancer signs — the moon rules over the Cancer sign, and has a strong connection to the sea and saltwater. Keep the solar momentum going with Kaiser's New Moon cocktail.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
