Special Tools Needed to Make Witches Brew Recipe

Masher – I like to use a flat masher since berries are smaller, or you can use a common potato masher or muddler.

Mixing bowl – You will need a large mixing bowl to ensure you don’t spill any of the drink.

Cocktail shaker – You can use a cocktail shaker for best results, or add ice to the mixing bowl and mix quickly. Make sure to remove the ice and pour the drinks right away so the ice does not melt and water down the drink.

Storage Instructions

Before putting this drink on ice you can store in a bottle in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

How Can I Add Smoke to My Drink?

Use a small amount of food grade dry ice, but be super careful when handling it. Never touch with your hands, wear gloves and use a tiny amount. Don’t drink before the dry ice has dissolved.

Can I Make This Drink a Different Color?

I prefer this drink to have a purple tone to it, so love to use just black berries, which helps with that. Sometimes, depending the time of year it can be hard to find just blackberries, so I will freeze them when they’re in season. Because I used mixed berries this time around there was more of a red tint to the drink. You can use food color to try to change the tone.
