An Intoxicating Halloween Concoction
This intoxicating drink is inspired by the ancient Mexican folklore – La Llorona. While you brew this drink, the eerie trail of wispy smoke produced by the dry ice will resemble La Llorona’s long, flowing gown.
If you have no idea about La Llorona, according to folklore, was a beautiful woman who drowned her children to be with a man and when he wanted nothing to do with her, she lost her mind. In the afterlife, she walks up and down bodies of water, wailing and looking for her children. It’s a conversation starter for a Halloween party for sure!
