Whether you prefer tricks or treats, Halloween wouldn’t be complete without some deliciously spooky cocktails to recreate at home. This issue, we’ve gone completely mad! We’re talking mad scientists, of course! Enjoy experimenting with these kooky liquid concoctions inspired by three classic fictional mad scientists.

JEKYLL & HYDE 2 oz (60 ml) Captain Morgan Pineapple Rum

2 cups (500 ml) Lapsang Souchong (smoked tea) * ¾ oz (22 ml) lemon juice ¾ oz (22 ml) simple syrup **

Mad Scientist Inspiration This cocktail takes inspiration from the 1886 classic novel, where the kind and respected scientist Dr. Jekyll experiments with a secret serum and transforms into Mr. Hyde, the evil, self-indulgent and uncaring antithesis. Experience the first sips of bright, sweet and tart pineapple rum, then taste as it transforms into a different cocktail as the smoked tea ice cube melts.

Pour 2 cups (500 ml) Lapsang Souchong tea into large cube or spherical ice moulds and freeze until solid. In a mixing glass with cubed ice, stir pineapple rum, lemon juice and simple syrup then strain mixture over prepared large cube or sphere of frozen smoked tea in a chilled old-fashioned glass. * Steep 2 tea bags or 2 tsp (10 ml) of loose leaf lapsang souchong in 2 cups (500 ml) boiled water for 4 minutes. Allow to cool before using. ** 1:1 ration of sugar dissolved in boiling water. Let cool before using.
