Weekend Report - Trelawney Style

Welcome to another edition of Weekend Report.  In our top story, Mid-month-pause.
Complaints have been comming in from all corners of common room about the mid-month-pause.  This condition causes a crafter to look at the remining classes and turn to an often times neglected OWL for support and comfort. 

One Slytherin was quoted as saying, "I'm simply out of inspiration for the classes I haven't done." 

In an effort to battle the listnessness we present some liquid inspiration loosly tied to the class assignments.  Please remember an age line has been cast around the rest of this post.  If you are under legal drinking age and attempt the following "crafts" you will grow hair in unwaxable places and the hotties will shun you.

Herbology's Flame of Love
1/2 oz  sherry
1 1/2 oz vodka
Swirl the sherry in an old-fashioned glass to coat. Add vodka, garnish with orange peel, and serve.

Pour all of the ingredients into an Irish coffee glass filled with crushed ice. Stir well

History of Magic's Double Fudge Martini

1/2 oz Kahlua® coffee liqueur
1/2 tsp espresso ground coffee

chocolate topping
1/3 oz DeKuyper® Buttershots liqueur
1 1/2 - 2 oz cream
1 tspgrated chocolate
Shake the vodka, Kahlua coffee liqueur, espresso coffee and chocolate topping with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. In a fresh shaker, shake cream and DeKuyper Buttershots (butterscotch liqueur) until thickened and float on top of the chocolate mix. Garnish with grated chocolate and chocoloate topping, and serve.

1 splash grenadine syrup
ice cubes


Astonomy's Rampant Rabbit

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker, shake and strain into an ice-filled collins glass. Garnish with two pineapple leaves placed down the side of the glass so that they look like rabbit's ears

Charms' Same Old Song
Pour the vermouth, gin, juices and orange bitters into a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes, and shake well. Strain into a cocktail glass, garnish with a slice of orange, and serve.

Transfiguration's Electric Screwdriver

  1. These all sound delicious, I can't wait to try some of them! I really think you could base a party theme around any of them, too.
