I really enjoy Mojitos. I experiment with all sorts of flavor combinations and this one is up there as one of my favorites. The Black Apple Mojito is great for your next Samhain or Halloween party. It is a dark and refreshing drink your guests will love.
The Black Apple Mojito
- 5 Blackberries fresh
- 1 Small handful of fresh Blueberries
- 15 Fresh Mint Leaves
- 1 oz Lime Juice fresh squeezed
- 6 oz fresh Apple Cider or fresh Juiced Apple
- 2 oz Light Rum
- Ginger Ale optional
In a cocktail mixer, add rum, berries, mint and muddle with a wooden spoon or a muddler if you have one. The idea is to crush the mint and berries so they release their juice and flavor.
Add lime juice, ice, apple juice and shake well.
Strain out the large pieces of ice and fruit or pour everything into a tall glass and ENJOY!!!
Garnish with berries and mint leaves if you like.
I used freshly juiced apples which I think tastes best. I just spun them in my juicer, it took me 2 minutes. Also, I barely used any ginger ale. You will find that you really don’t need it. Please take caution with this drink. It sneaks up on you.
For the best result allow the berries and rum to steep for about 15 minutes.
Please enjoy responsibly.

Through persistence, I found the honest answer… I can have both! I realize that I could forge my own path using the skills and knowledge I gained, and the simplest of techniques.
I love food and everything that goes with it. I have spent more than 35 years in the kitchen, enjoying every minute. Okay… well, enjoying almost every minute of it.
In addition, I have disbursed nearly as many years studying Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism. Combining these two interests has created a Magickal path where I combine food and spirituality. To my delight they play brilliantly together.
My love of whole healthy foods, and unique recipes has also lead me to help run a local teen cooking program, where I teach kids valuable life skills in the kitchen. In addition, I teach a variety of cooking classes for adults and covens on subjects ranging from making the time spent in the kitchen more enjoyable, to cooking together as a group, and recipe-spell creation.
It only made sense that I would begin writing and sharing my experience. From this, The Magick Kitchen was born. My journey with you is about developing a spiritual experience with food, far beyond the dull habit of consumption. We have a marvelous opportunity here to take a most mundane task and make it Magickal!
The Magick Kitchen is about connecting to Divinity through food and the ritual of preparing and sharing food. It is about developing a sacred balance between nourishment, ritual, and spirit. Food has the power to heal, sooth, and bring us together as friends, families, and community.
I am so glad you joined me! Sharing knowledge, experience, and personal perspective with you is an honor. Thank you!
