Spooky Margarita

Drink responsibly. This recipe contains alcohol and is for people that are 21 years of age or older. This drink does have an open flame so be sure not to leave the fire on for too long or drink when the glass is too hot. Always be careful when lighting any drink on fire or just don’t do it. Please be careful when using activated charcoal as it decreases how much your body absorbs and can reduce the effectiveness of medication.

Enjoy this spooky margarita on Cinco de Mayo! Cheers!
