Activated charcoal gives this spooky drink its dark hue!
- 3 oz grape juice
- 1 oz añejo rum
- 1 oz white rum
- 3/4 oz simple syrup
- 3/4 oz fresh lime juice
- 1/2 oz charcoal powder
- 5 blackberries
- Optional: dry ice (note – be super careful handling dry ice and never touch it with bare hands!)
- Muddle blackberries directly in cocktail glass.
- In a cocktail shaker, combine all ingredients except dry ice. Pour in about a half cup of regular ice, then shake for about 30 seconds. Strain into cocktail glass.
- Enjoy immediately or add in a small chip of dry ice for smoking effect.
Dry ice is available at many large supermarkets – you may have to call around and ask to make sure they have it.
