**Description:** Eclipse Elixir is a captivating cocktail that embodies the mesmerizing interplay of light and darkness during an eclipse. This visually stunning drink uses the advanced mixology technique of layering, combined with a homemade blueberry and black tea syrup that undergoes a dramatic color change with the addition of citrus - a nod to the rare beauty of an eclipse. It's a cocktail that not only tantalizes the taste buds but also offers a visual spectacle, making it a perfect conversation starter. **Ingredients:** - 1.5 oz Gin (Preferably a floral one) - 0.75 oz Homemade Blueberry and Black Tea Syrup (recipe below) - 0.5 oz Fresh Lemon Juice - 0.5 oz Creme de Violette - 1 Egg White - Butterfly Pea Flower Ice Sphere (for the dramatic color change) - Edible Gold Dust for garnish (optional) **Blueberry and Black Tea Syrup:** - 1 cup Water - 1 cup Sugar - 1 cup Fresh Blueberries - 2 Bags of Black Tea **Preparation:** 1. **Blueberry and Black Tea Syrup:** In a saucepan, combine water, sugar, and blueberries. Bring to a simmer, crushing the blueberries to release their juice. Add the black tea bags and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, let it steep for 20 minutes, then strain into a clean bottle. Cool before use. 2. **Butterfly Pea Flower Ice Sphere:** Steep butterfly pea flowers in hot water for 5 minutes. Strain and let the liquid cool. Pour into a spherical ice mold and freeze until solid. 3. **Cocktail:** In a shaker, combine the gin, blueberry and black tea syrup, lemon juice, Creme de Violette, and egg white. Dry shake (without ice) vigorously for about 15 seconds. Add ice and shake again until well chilled. 4. Place the butterfly pea flower ice sphere in a chilled coupe glass. 5. Double strain the cocktail mixture over the butterfly pea flower ice sphere. As the drink chills, it will slowly start to change color, mimicking an eclipse. 6. For an added touch of elegance, lightly dust with edible gold dust. **Glass:** Serve in a chilled coupe glass to showcase the color transformation and the delicate layering of flavors. Eclipse Elixir is more than just a drink; it's an experience that captures the ephemeral beauty of an eclipse, combining the art of mixology with a touch of magic. Cheers!
