Gurdyroot Infusion (Harry Potter mocktail)
Ingredients:2 oz Orange Juice3 oz Sparkling Red Grape Juice1 oz Ginger Ale1 slice of fresh Ginger as a garnish
May is the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts and I thought it would be an opportune time to make a Harry Potter drink! This mocktail is alcoholic free and very easy to mix in large quantities, making it a perfect drink for muggles (or wizards and witches) of all ages at a Harry Potter themed party. For more info on the inspiration behind the drink and to learn how to mix it, check out the video below.

thetadoctorSherlock Holmes and John Watson cocktails

Sherlock
Ingredients:
1 oz. Top Shelf Vodka (We’re talking about Sherlock. Try Grey Goose or Belvedere)
1 1/2 oz Cranberry Juice
1/2 oz Blue Curacao 

Directions: Use a chilled stemmed glass. This drink would look smooth in a Martini Glass. Pour the ingredients in the glass in order. When you add the Blue Curacao, you’ll notice the color smoke into purple. Ah, Science. Optional Cherry Garnish, but don’t over do it. The body is just transport.

The game, Mrs. Hudson, is on!

John Watson
Ingredients:
1/2 oz Light Rum
1/2 oz Tequila
1/2 oz Gin
1/2 oz Vodka
1/2 oz Triple Sec
Orange Juice
Orange Wheel

Directions: The Glass doesn’t matter too much, you’re not trying to show off. Try a stein type shown here, or a Collins Glass. Shake the alcoholic ingredients with ice and strain into the glass. Fill with Orange Juice. You’re allowed to feel fancy, Float some Grand Marnier if you’d like. Add Orange Wheel. The idea is to let them think that you’re innocent, then you can unexpectedly kick them in the face. 

Now people will definitely talk.

The Portal Two (Portal 2 Cocktails)
Ingredients:Blue CuracaoVodkaLemonade CointreauRum Orangina Small tumblers
Directions: “This drink is, of course, designed to resemble the two coloured portals from the excellent sci-fi puzzle game. For the blue version, get a small tumbler and pour in 10ml of Blue Curacao, 10ml of vodka and top up with lemonade. For orange you’ll need another tumbler, this time filled with 10ml of Cointreau, 10ml of rum and Orangina. If you fancy, you can jazz the glasses up with coloured sugar rims. Simply pour some sugar into a sandwich bag with the relevant food colouring, shake them up, pour the resulting mix into a dish and dip your tumbler in. “You can mix the portals together if you like,” says James. “It’s a very orangey flavour, which we thought tied in with The Orange Box, the compilation in which the original Portal appeared.”
The finest beverage breakthroughs from the Aperture alcohol research labs. Drink them in the name of science. You monster.

The Crimson Omen (Gears of War Cocktail)
Ingredients:
1 shot Black Cherry Vodka1 shot Captain Morgan’s Tattoo (Spiced Rum)1 shot GrenadineFill the rest with Cheerwine Soda
Directions: Mix the first three ingredients and pour.  Fill the rest of the glass with Cheerwine and stir.  Add a few ice cubes if you wish.
I love this drink.  Cheerwine is a cherry soda that is slightly uncommon, but I believe most Walmarts and Krogers carry it now.  The very sweet cherry flavor goes great with the black cherry vodka and the smooth spiced rum.  Grenadine adds to the sugary cherry flavor and makes this drink very sweet.  If you want something that tastes a bit harder, leave out the grenadine and the drink will have a bit more kick.  The color comes out as a perfect crimson.  If you’re looking for a sweet, cherry drink to sip on while sawing down some Locusts, the Crimson Omen is it.
