Bleeding Black Ice
For a little taste of the witching hour, drop these pitch black cubes into a drink. There’s two ways to make them. To create the cubes pictured above, dissolve activated charcoal in water and pour it into ice molds. The resulting cubes are like eerie, smoky portals into an unknown dimension. As the ice melts, it will cloud your cocktails with an onyx hue.
Alternatively, you can blend two parts red wine with one part water and a few drops of green and blue food coloring. Pour the mix into an ice cube tray and freeze to get ghoulish, wine-flavored cubes perfect for a Risky Sour. Or, add them to a Morguerita rimmed with black salt for a deeply eerie libation.
