As you learned from Monday's post, I'm a bit of a Harry Potter nut. I adore the books and though the films are not perfect, they are fun. Recently my friend John decided to read all of the books for the first time now that he can get them digitally. So every time he finishes a book, he come's over to our apartment and John, Jim, and myself watch the corresponding movie and we take turnes bringing the beer. ;) This past Sunday, John he finished the very last book (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) and we had a mini Harry Potter party!
Our friend Whitney and Vince came over as well and the five of us marathon-ed the last two films (Deathly Hallows Part 1&2) and made Harry Potter themed drinks! Disclaimer - Please drink responsibility! Also, please do not try these drinks if you are under the drinking age where you live. We are all well over 21 and did not over do it.
Here's our final opinions:
Pumpkin Ale: good beer, not pumpkin-y enough.
Butterbeer: good but a bit too sweet, vodka is optional
Fire Whiskey: tastes like fire
Perhaps for our next party we'll try the non-acholeic versions and maybe even some Harry Potter themed food. Any recipes for us to try? Overall the party was a success, even if the drinks were not.
