Don't worry: You won't need a steaming, bubbling cauldron to brew up this fiendish herbal drink. A shaker tin and some ice will do just fine! You're also not required to wear a witch's hat and have a big wart on the nose while making it. However, bursting out in a diabolical laughter of accomplishment after taking the first sip would be appreciated. This drink is an explosion of complex herbaceousness, paired with the exotic earthy-bitterness of Mate and intense dark flavours of Mr. Black.



 1 oz Mr Black Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur
 0.25 oz Green Chartreuse
 0.25 oz Jägermeister
 0.25 oz Cointreau
 0.50 tsp Sambuca
 0.25 oz Lime Juice
 Carbonated Mate
 Thyme Sprig for garnish



Combine all liquid ingredients except the Mate into a cocktail shaker.


Add 3 Ice Cubes and shake for 12 seconds.


Double strain into a Margarita Glass.


Top off the glass with Mate.


Garnish with a small Thyme sprig.




Tip: If Carbonated Mate beverages (examples: Club Mate, Guayakí Yerba Mate) are not available in your country, you can use traditional Mate tea. Carbonated Mate should be available in most countries in some form or another and under different brand names, depending on country. Just check your local supermarket, beverage store or the Internet. There is no need in using one specific brand or style, as they all have the distinct herbal Mate-Flavour in common. Just be sure to use a version without any added secondary flavours.
