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!
The Dark and Smoky is an innovative drink — but you can only get it for a VERY limited time! Paddle over to Paddlefish from October 27 to October 31 if you want to try one! (FYI — you can get it on the rooftop deck at any time, with no reservation.)
And if you want to see the drink in motion, all you need to do is check out our Instagram, where I’ve posted a video of the mysterious Dark and Smoky.
