We get it, the world is in the middle of a mythic wave of unicorns, rainbows and mermaids but honestly, haven't you had it enough, already? If you have, we have the perfect cure for you — the black lemonade.

This all new refreshing take on lemonade is the perfect antithesis of all things magical, colourful and glittery.

The not-so-secret ingredient

Made for those with a little dark soul hidden inside, this pitch black flavour lemonade has an expected ingredient — activated charcoal.

This allegedly healthy ingredient is popping up in the form of detoxifying masks, cleansing juices and hangover cure. But potential health benefits aside, there's no denying that this jet-black treat is BEYOND Instagram-worthy.

How to make black lemonade

According to the good folks at Instructables, the recipe is fairly straightforward. All you really need are some lemons, stevia, water, ice and a spoonful of edible activated charcoal and you're good to get on with black metal swagger.

Here is a list of ingredients you need:

  • 1-2 capsules activated charcoal
  • juice of one lemon
  • stevia or maple syrup
  • water
  • ice

Follow the instructions below to give yourself a much-needed break from everything rainbow.

Just make sure you don't have any allergic reaction to charcoal. Consuming charcoal made from burnt coconut shells is not dangerous but it’s not safe or recommended by doctors either.
