You know how I made a bunch of tasty LaCroix cocktail videos a few months ago?


They were short, funny and chock full of delicious cocktail goodness??  Well, LaCroix saw them and recently asked me to come up with a Halloween-themed mocktail for them.


Now, now, don’t get scared off by the term “mocktail”.

Not everyone loves the booze as much as you and I.  And my kids ask to try my new creations all of the time and I either have to say no, or make a mocktail-version for them.  (And if you want my secret alcohol recommendation for this little number, I would go with a really good vodka.  Shhhhhhhh.)


What really makes this video the best video I have ever created is the gorilla suit.  Cuz it’s Halloween, yo.  I couldn’t do a Halloween video without going for some sort of costume.  And, I may have gotten a little carried away with the fog machine.  But you will have to watch it to see what I am talking about.  On to the Black Magic Mixer video featuring Lemon LaCroix!!!  Kid-friendly!  Yummy!




Black Magic Mixer:

1/2 oz vanilla simple syrup

2 oz pineapple juice

10 blackberries

black sugar (optional)

Lemon LaCroix


Add vanilla simple syrup and 10 blackberries to a cocktail shaker.  Muddle the berries until they have released all of their juice.  Add the pineapple juice and fill the shaker with ice.  Shake.  Rim the top of a glass with black sugar.  Strain the shaker into the glass.  Top off glass with 4-6 oz of Lemon LaCroix.  Stir, enjoy and be filled with the spooky spirit of Halloween.
