Tired of the unicorn, mermaid and flamingo trends? Lindsey Granger says it’s time to switch it up. Gothic food and drinks are super-hot right now and she is sharing three trends worth going to the “Dark Side” for.

1.  Goth Latte

This one is made with just activated charcoal. Instead of adding sugar and things that are bad for you, you're adding something that's good for you. The ingredients are simple. Just break open a charcoal pill, which you can find at your local grocer, and then add espresso to the base, mix it up and add milk over the top like a regular latte.

2.  Goth Cocktail

Here we have a gin, orange liqueur and Cocchi Americano. Infuse them all with black licorice. To infuse your spirits leave the licorice sitting in them overnight. Then add equal parts lemon juice, Cocchi Americano, which is a white wine, orange liqueur and gin. Then add ice and shake it like a Polaroid picture. ENJOY!

3.  Goth Ice Cream

Yes, black ice cream is a thing and Los Angeles based ice cream shop Little Damage is even serving up a matching cone. The official flavor is almond charcoal and the black color actually comes from activated charcoal.

Big thanks to Press Coffee Roasters’ Alex Mason and Jade Bar’s Eddie Garcia!
