Activated charcoal gives this spooky drink its dark hue!



  • 3 oz grape juice
  • 1 oz aƱejo 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!)


  1. Muddle blackberries directly in cocktail glass.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
