This week we're raising a glass with some Hogwarts House inspired drinks!
We're heading back to Chapter One of the Chamber of Secrets - 'The Worst Birthday' for our next recipe:
"I will lead them into the lounge, introduce you Petunia, and pour them drinks"
Thirsty? You can't have a Harry Potter-themed dinner party without coming up with an equally magical set of drinks! And what better nod to the Wizarding World than Hogwarts House inspired cocktails?
This week we're creating four classic cocktails inspired by each of the four Hogwarts houses! Even if you've never made a cocktail before, these simple step-by-step recipes are bound to impress your guests!
Once you've rustled up the basics (a simple sugar syrup recipe and your cocktail garnish) you're all set to shake up a storm. These colourful cocktails are the best (and tastiest) way for you to show your House Pride - we've got a Gryffindor Campari Spritz, a Slytherin Classic Margarita, a Ravenclaw Blue Lagoon, and a Hufflepuff Amaretto Sour!
Cocktails are so much fun to make and the best thing is that you can personalise them to suit your tastes! Although my recipes are tried and tested, you should definitely try to mix things up a bit and see what new potions you create!
