Review:

Beautifully balanced bitter-sweetness with tequila and mezcal sitting harmoniously with cherry and aperitivo liqueurs, with lemon freshness. A perfect aperitivo cocktail.

History:

The colour of the moon during an eclipse inspired the name of this rusty-orange-red cocktail.

In Jim Meehan & Chris Gall's 2011 The PDT Cocktail Book, the creation of the Eclipse is credited to "Leo Robitschek, New York, Winter 2009" with the following recipe:
"2 oz El Tesoro Añejo Tequila
.75 oz. Aperol
.75 oz. Cherry Heering
.75 oz. Lemon Juice
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled, Del Maguey Vida Mezcal-rinsed coupe.
Garnish with a lemon twist
"

When or where, this cocktail morphed from being served in a mezcal-rinsed coupe to being served on-the-rock with a mezcal float is unknown, but some say, it was first served at the 2013 Great GoogaMooga Festival held at Prospect Park, Brooklyn, New York. USA.
