We have all grown up reading J.K. Rowling’s masterpiece series Harry Potter.

It has been 14-years since the Philosopher’s Stone was released in the UK and now with the release of the final movie fast approaching, we are going to want something stronger than pumpkin juice to toast the end of an era, or at the very least something strong to drown away the no more Harry Potter blues.

What better way to commemorate the Harry Potter legacy than to create cocktails for the most beloved (or despised) characters.

The Fred and George Weasley

Fred and George are identical twins that are the leaders of all things mischief and starters of every good prank.

These tricksters spend their time concocting gag gifts and joke candy much to the dismay of their mother.

Despite being the quintessential pranksters, it is their kindness and caring that makes them beloved.

Their drink highlights their sweetness but be forewarned it wouldn’t be Fred and George without a surprise.

The Luna Lovegood

Luna is called “Loony” by her peers at Hogwarts but her unapologetic uniqueness, cleverness, and loyalty is why she is beloved by her fellow Dumbledore’s Army members.

A one of a kind drink is fitting for someone with Luna’s distinctive personality.

The Neville Longbottom

Neville is viewed as shy and clumsy by his classmates, with frequent accidents and awkward moments follow him.

However, these traits are overshadowed by his bravery, leadership, and knack for Herbology.

A strong and earthy drink is fitting for this unlikely hero.

Neville Longbottom

  • 1 ½ oz white rum
  • ½ oz lime juice
  • 2/3 cup green tea
  • Splash of club soda
  • 6 large mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • Muddle the mint, sugar and lime juice together in a Collins glass
  • Add ice until glass and then pour in rum and green tea.
  • Stir thoroughly.

The Draco Malfoy

Draco is a pure-blood wizard that is proud, determined, and bossy ringleader; he doesn’t mind bending a few rules if it will help him succeed in the end.

Despite being prideful, Draco is haunted by the responsibility and obligation his affluent family demands.

Draco’s drink is the dirty version of a sophisticated classic.

Draco Malfoy

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz gin
  • 1 tbsp dry vermouth
  • 2 tbsp olive juice
  • 2 gruyere stuffed olives

Directions:

  • Fill cocktail glass with cold water and place in freezer for 2 minutes to chill.
  • Fill a cocktail mixer with gin, Vermouth and olive juice. Cover and shake.
  • Remove glass from freezer, empty and strain mixer into the cocktail glass.
  • Garnish with olives.

    HARRY POTTER FANS!

    Through a crack in space and time, from the war has emerged ghosts and a limited number of Magic Brooms.

    Only two house colors red/yellow, green and silver
    with tassels dangling like mystical charms survived the journey to Mississippi Mama’s™ Magic Broom Factory in Hattiesburg MS. Each broom has been blessed and dusted with magic dust that has been passed down for four generations.

    Check it out in ebay: http://shop.ebay.com/kashmirmoses2011/m.html?_trksid=p4340.l2562

    Material Specification
    The brooms are made of straw, stands approx. 38 inches tall. weight less than one pound and the bottom fans out to approx. 13 inches.

    The Boom Boom Broomâ„¢ is in excellent condition..  It’s very practical can be used for sweeping your troubles out the door.  It’s decorative and a great conversation  piece. The handle allows you to hang it as a wall decoration.  Most of all it’s fun to sweep with while dancing to your favorite music.  Just the touch of the broom usually puts you in a different mood and bring a smile to your face.   The handle of  Mississippi Mama’sâ„¢ Magic Boom Boom Broomâ„¢ is  wrapped in color coordinated vinyl that matches the top and bottom tassels that are made from beautiful satin ribbon.
    Make it an air loom and story to pass on to your children and grandchildren.
