    1. Make Simple Syrup: Add BLK water to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in sugar; simmer until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

      Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
      For a spooky effect, add a small cube of dry ice to the cocktail. Be careful though, dry ice is so cold that it can burn your skin and your throat. Make sure you wear gloves and never touch or ingest whole pieces of dry ice.
