Ginny and Tonks are a dynamic duo who build on each other with their humor and fierce loyalty. So what could be better than the two of them mixed together in this take on a classic gin and tonic?
For some extra magic, try Empress Gin or Blue Magic Gin. This gin turns pink (just like Tonks’s hair) when mixed with the tonic. Add a blood orange peel as a garnish and a few drops of orange bitters for some extra Ginny flair.
Does crystallized pineapple sound just as appealing to you as it does to this Potions master? Do you love hosting parties for your carefully-selected club of friends? Then this cocktail is perfect for you!
Everyone needs a little bit of liquid luck, so try this Felix Felicis shot glass to help you mix your drink:
Complete with a flowery violet taste and mixed to a Beauxbatons blue, this cocktail epitomizes the classy French champion.
For extra elegance, try these flower ice cube makers at your next Beauxbatons-themed gathering:
If Dumbledore were to indulge in a cocktail, he would love this lemon-based drink. Dumbledore’s name means “bumblebee,” so a dash of honey is added for sweetness.
As the Hogwarts headmaster, Dumbledore would show his school pride by drinking out of a glass with the Hogwarts crest on it.
Are you looking for a cocktail to bewitch the mind and ensnare the senses? How about one that you can drink moodily in black robes while pretending to be a Death Eater? Then this is the perfect potion to brew.
To add to your Death Eater act, try these skull-shaped whiskey stones to keep your drink cool without watering it down.
Spicy and surprising, just like the twins, this red cocktail is sure to bring some excitement to your night. Add some ginger syrup to represent their hair, and finish it off with some freshly cracked jokes – I mean peppercorn.
From nicking food from the kitchens to turning people into canaries, we always know that Fred and George are up to no good at the parties they throw. If you want to show people that you’re throwing a Weasley-twin-style party, try this shot glass for making your cocktails:
And to emphasize the Marauder’s Map theme, how about setting your drinks out on these coasters?
You may be a cocktail person, or perhaps, like Mad-Eye Moody, you like your alcohol straight up, without any drink mixing. If that’s the case, try out this Polyjuice Potion hip flask – and make all your friends question if you are who you say you are.
