What could be better than eating with Harry Potter?

Drinking with Harry Potter!

As readers of Harry Potter will know, when The Goblet of Fire comes around, we will associate Sherry with Professor Sybil Trelawney. But its first appearance is in the first book, during Harry's first visit to the Leaky Cauldron:

"A few old women were sitting in a corner, drinking tiny glasses of sherry" (Sorcerer's Stone 68).

Sherry is not usually the drink of choice in today's society (unless you're like Professor Trelawney and you pretend you're using it in your cooking). Sherry is, however, an ingredient in many delicious cocktails! Today we will make Banana Nutbread Cocktails, the recipe for which can be found here.

You Will Need:
1 oz Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur
1 oz Creme de Bananes
1/2 oz Dry Sherry
1 Tbs Vanilla Ice Cream

1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender with a small handful of ice and blend until smooth-ish.

2. Pour into a cocktail glass and enjoy!

These are super delicious! I hope you like them! And remember to drink responsibly... reasonably responsibly anyway.


  1. I can barely keep up! everytime I check there is something NEW!

  2. haha! I'm trying to get ahead because I have 3 dresses to make in the next 2 weeks, so time for cooking will be at a minimum :)
