I'm not really a hard alcohol drinker - I mostly drink hard cider. However, I do have a big love for all things autumn and all things Harry Potter. I can now quote almost every single line in all eight of the Harry Potter movies *hair flip*.
My mother and I created an advent calendar of sorts for the month of October. It's made of tins, paper and stickers. In each tin, we put something to do and a piece of candy. We started this calendar last year and last autumn we had so many more outside activities to do. However, obviously because of COVID-19, this year, all of our paper says make this treat, make that treat, try this cocktail, watch this movie, have this movie marathon, etc.
I was searching for a couple of cocktails for us to try this season, and I found that I had previously saved this cocktail on one of my Pinterest boards. It's the Golden Snitch Cocktail found on Half Baked Harvest.
You'll need apple cider, whiskey or bourbon (we prefer bourbon), St. Germain's elderflower liquor, lemon juice, pure maple syrup, ground cinnamon, a cinnamon stick, ground ginger and sparkling water.
I really enjoyed this cocktail and I would make it again. 10 points for Gryffindor!
