    Solage, A Napa Valley Resort has created a refreshment custom-made for the cosmic event on Aug. 21.

    LOOK UP, in wonder, on Monday, Aug. 21? Many people will be doing just that at points around North America, thanks to the total solar eclipse. You may have already researched the prime path of the eclipse, and where you might travel to fully soak in the moment's epic splendor, but consider a stop at Solage, A Napa Valley Resort, for a special sip tied to the skyward celebration.

Look for gin, carrot juice, lemon juice, too, turmeric, and some simple syrup. The place to find this sunshiny libation, one that comes with late-summer zing, taste-wise?

It's $45 if you're a guest or member of Solage, and $75 if not (your entry comes with bathhouse privileges, though, throughout the day, and, for sure, you can hang out in the spa's relaxation areas, too).
