The hangover-smashing Black Magic cocktail combines beet juice with activated charcoal—the latest detox trend that claims to help dispel unwanted toxins. Don't be turned off by the jet-black hue, the charcoal itself is tasteless.
- 510 mg Activated charcoal (two 260mg capsules)
- 1 oz Honey syrup (one part honey, one part water)
- 1 3/4 oz Fresh lime juice
- 2 1/4 oz Beet juice
- Garnish: Lime wheel
In a small bowl, break apart the charcoal capsules and discard the outer layer.
Whisk together the charcoal and honey syrup until combined (it will be jet black in color).
In a shaker, combine the charcoal-honey syrup with the remaining ingredients and fill with ice.
Shake, and strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice.
