On August 25, 1835 the New York Sun
published a series of articles over five days that are now known as The Great Moon Hoax
. The articles pretended to be reprinted from the Edinburgh Courant
and written by scientists who had designed a telescope that could see every bit of the moon. The articles described in great detail what they viewed which included: bison, goats, unicorns and bat-like winged humanoids. That's good stuff. For the full text of the articles see Hoaxes.org
In honor of this great hoax, which I'm sure frightened any number of people, I say we celebrate with a Full Moon cocktail from MixThatDrink.com
. This packs a punch and may cause you to see a unicorn.
Full Moon Cocktail

1 1/2 oz Amaretto
