There is something that you may not know about The Blind Pig household. It is full of history and science buffs, so we couldn’t let the month of July pass without a toast to our fateful heroes of 50 years ago for taking a wild ride in July of 1969 and landing on the rock closest to Earth. Cheers to you, Buzz, Neil, and Mike! As we composed this post we couldn’t help humming the the tune of Rocket Man by Elton John.
To commemorate the golden anniversary of one small step and a giant leap, we found a cocktail! Are you surprised? The Moon Walk fits all of our usual criteria of easy, tasty and fresh. This drink is so basic and easy we bet that Rhonda’s Aunt Marilyn even has all of these ingredients on hand.
To make this delicious drink you need your favorite vodka, fresh squeezed lime juice, simple syrup and fresh mint leaves. Place the mint leaves in a shaker and muddle for a few seconds. Add the vodka, lime juice, and simple syrup. Shake over ice and pour into a martini glass.

We garnished our Moon Walk with a full moon sphere ice ball and an American flag for a drink that is truly atmospheric.
Are you commemorating the lunar landing at your house? We would love to know how! Maybe while you are watching the lunar specials on tv, you can salute our American heroes with a toast.
