Mystical Black Widow Cocktail

What would Halloween be without a special TREAT for the adults?! I mean, we’re all here for the boos, aren’t we? ?? Today I’m sharing all of the details of this hauntingly beautiful, Black Widow Cocktail with you!

The Black Widow Cocktail gets its black hue from activated charcoal and it’s chilling looks from dry ice!! If you don’t have activated charcoal on hand, not to worry, feel free to skip this step as it will only slightly change the colour from black to more of a maroon colour!

Pps. The dry ice is just for effect, do not ingest this!
