Eclipse cocktail

The Eclipse Cocktail was popularized in the late 1800s by bartender Adolphe Duglere at New York’s Holland House Bar. The name “Eclipse” comes from the three ingredients that are used in this cocktail – cognac, dark creme de cacao, and heavy cream. The word “eclipse” means “to go out” or “to be covered by another object”, which is what happens when these three ingredients are combined together. The Eclipse cocktail is a classic drink that is made with cognac, dark creme de cacao, and heavy cream. The crossover of these ingredients creates a sweet flavor due to the combination of the cognac, which has caramelized sugar notes.

This drink is a mix of Tequila anejo, cherry brandy liqueur, orange-red aperitivo and lemon juice (freshly squeezed).

Spirits Used:


1 Ounce(s) Gin
2 Ounce(s) Sloe gin
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Lemon Juice
