2 oz Lime juice
1 oz. Solermo blood orange liqueur

Shake with plenty of crushed ice and pour unstrained into your vessel. Spank a mint sprig for garnish.
What a horrible night to have a curse, but what a great time to have a drink! With the bad moon newly risen, pour yourself this delicious variation on a classic Trader Vic's Mai Tai. (Rumor has it, the Trader himself was hipped to this ghoulish variant while staying the night at the Cranshaw House and exploring the grounds beneath a blood moon...I wonder who...or what...he encountered).
While we all seemed to have survived the tetrad called for by the Blood Moon Prophecy, why not keep the fixings for this cocktail around all the time... I'm sure there will be another Doomeday event predicted any time now.
"The sun will turn into darkness, and the moon into blood before the great and terrible day."
