This Halloween-themed cocktail is straight from Black Lagoon’s Halloween pop-up bar, set to serve nine cities this October. Masterminds Erin Hayes and Kelsey Ramage promise a fun experience fit for the Halloween season. Inspired by goth metal and cult horror, Black Lagoon’s dark dungeons of drink are ornamented with dreadful decor and eerie soundtracks. Guests can enjoy creative cocktails that bear chilling names, like the Screaming Banshee. To achieve Black Lagoon’s spooky presentation, serve in a zombie glass alongside their other thriller, Blood Rave.
