A Rum Sour blackened with blackberries and charcoal powder. The black charcoal which makes this cocktail black does little for the taste and given the potential issues with charcoal this tasty cocktail is perhaps best appreciated without its addition (as illustrated photographed here).

History:

A cocktail which was widely made to celebrate the total solar eclipse which worked its way across the USA on 21 August 2017 – the first for 38 years.
