  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1/2 teaspoon charcoal powder
  • 4 ounces pineapple juice
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1 ounce club soda


  • Make black gin, up to a month in advance. Infuse gin with activated charcoal powder. Either add a few ounces of gin to a lidded jar and shake with a pinch of food-grade activated charcoal powder until combined. Or infuse an entire bottle with a tablespoon of charcoal powder.
  • Prepare ice spheres using round ice mold and place coupe or martini glasses in freezer.
  • When ready to serve fill a cocktail shaker with ice and pour black gin, pineapple juice and lime juice over ice. Shake to chill and strain into chilled glasses.
  • Carefully place an ice sphere in the center of each glass and top with a pour of club soda.
