💭 What is Black Vodka?
Black Vodka is a fun, novelty vodka that's perfect for Halloween cocktails. It starts out as clear vodka, but is colored black via red, green, and blue food coloring.
If you can't find Blavod (a commercially available black vodka) at your local liquor store, this recipe is for you. No matter what you decide to make, this vodka will be a spooky addition to your cocktail.
For this recipe, you only need TWO ingredients. See the recipe card for full information on ingredients and quantities.
- Vodka: Use any clear vodka of your choosing. I used an unflavored vodka, but you could use a flavored variety if you wanted.
- Food coloring: You'll need red, blue, and green food coloring.
🔀 Substitutions or Variations
- Use activated charcoal. Instead of food coloring, you can use activated charcoal to give your vodka a black color. However, over time, the charcoal will settle on the bottom of the bottle, leaving the vodka more of a gray color. It'll still be spooky, though!
- Use black food coloring. You could always cut to the chase and use black food coloring. I usually only have the green, blue, red, and yellow ones you can find in a set at the grocery store in my pantry, but if you have black, use it.
- Use a flavored vodka. I used. unflavored vodka, but you can use any flavored vodka, too, as long as it is clear.
