Black Cauldron

Activated charcoal gives this cocktail its dark hue

Black Cauldron Halloween Cocktail

The cauldron has long been the symbol of witches' brew on Halloween. But this year omit the eye of newt and wing of bat and instead serve up this inky-black cocktail. Activated charcoal is even sold in supplement stores and is supposed to help clean out the body's toxins, so your friends could even thank you.



*Adds a jet-black hue and a light, smoky flavor to the cocktail

  • 2 Dashes of angostura bitters
