Review: Limited Time Dark and Smoky Drink at Paddlefish in Disney Springs (See It To Believe It)

If you’re celebrating Halloween at Walt Disney World and you’re also a grown up who likes to try new things, Paddlefish in Disney Springs has exactly what you’re after. It’s called the Dark and Smoky, and it’s creeptacular.

Now, you might be thinking, “Wait. What? That’s not dark OR smoky!” Stay with me. Because this drink is a trick before it’s a treat. The concoction of Mezcal and Pumpkin Spice Syrup is innocent enough. But beside it lays a sliver of darkness.

It’s powdered activated charcoal, and it’s magical stuff. To create the storm inside your glass, simply pour in the charcoal then give it a stir.

You’ll watch transfixed as the darkness spreads throughout the glass, the charcoal dissolving into an expanding cloud of blackness. It’s the kind of cocktail that Maleficent would probably drink if she needed to relax after a long day of evildoing.

And just like that, this powerful drink is both Dark AND Smoky. And because there’s Pumpkin Spice Syrup, you also get all those warm fall spices. BAM!

    I really hate to say this but this sounds awful. I am a nurse and we give activated charcoal for overdoses in the emergency room. It is considered a medication. I would never drink it in a cocktail.
