Author Notes: This may look like a trick, but one sip and you will see that it is a TREAT! A midori cocktail is the first thing that popped in my mind when this week’s theme was announced – it is the perfect wicked witch green! This is what the adults at my house will be drinking on Halloween. Note: The black lava sea salt contains activated charcoal, which has a very dramatic visual effect against the fluorescent green of the midori. I will post a photo soon. gingerroot
