I'm throwing an Apollo 11 themed party for the anniversary of the Moon landing, and trying to come up with some cocktail ideas while watching an Apollo 11 documentary and general revelry
I'm aware of the Moonwalk champagne cocktail, thinking that may cap off the night, but still looking for a couple to make before.
The first I was thinking would be a riff on the Test Pilot, as most the astronauts used to be test pilots.
Another I'm playing would be called the Kerolox, the fuel process of the Saturn V. The fuel was basically a 3:2 mix of liquid oxygen (a very light blue color) and RP-1 kerosene (which is red). My basic idea is to have it be a 2 part drink that gets mixed together in the glass when served. I'm running into a block when trying to figure out a recipe for that. Even better if the "RP-1" component is overproof and could be ignited, or maybe just flame an orange over it to give that kind of rocket engine vibe.
I'd love to know what you all think and if you have any other ideas!
