The Witch’s Heart Cocktail !


  • 1 jigger apple brandy or apple vodka chilled
  • 1 tsp grenadine
  • 2 jiggers (or to top up) 
  • Homemade Blackberry 
  • Shimmery liqueur 
  • Chilled
  • Powdered dry ice optional


Add about ½ – 1 tsp of powdered dry ice to the bottom of the glass (optional).

Place the apple brandy and purple shimmery liqueur in a shaker. Add 1 ice cube and shake for a few seconds to chill the drink. Strain the drink into a martini glass. Top up with more purple shimmery liqueur if necessary.

Pour 1 tsp of grenadine syrup, about an inch from the surface of the drink – the grenadine should sink to the bottom, creating a “bleeding” effect.

Add about ½ tsp of powdered dry ice on top and serve with a stirrer, so that your guests can stir the “potion” to create that shimmery, smoky effect.
