Black Magic

Halloween is a time when I like to have even more fun than usual with my garnishes. Sometimes, that means lighting up a jack o' lantern in my drink. Other times, that means adding some menacing blood (or grenadine) to create a man-eating Banana Dolphin. Here, I'm getting a little…

Tiki Death Punch
