Espresso patronum! That’s right, Beans & Barlour, the sweet tooth sanctuary of St. Petersburg is transforming into Hogwarts for the entirety of October. Headmaster, and next-level dessert wizard Story Stuart has crafted a menu of boozy dessert cocktails that are pure magic. Don’t fret, her polyjuice potion won’t turn you into anything other than satisfied.
Speaking of, on the top of the drink menu is Mad-Eye Moody’s Polyjuice Potion. The sparkling drink features iced black tea with lychee honey, whiskey, orange, lychee popping pearls and blue glitter. After sipping this drink, you’ll be ready for the Tri-Wizard Tournament.
Next up, the coup de gras of drinks in the wizarding world, BOOZY BUTTERBEER. Your eyes aren’t deceiving you, this drink sparkles. Beans & Barlour’s Butterbeer is loaded with spiced rum, edible glitter, and topped with a butterscotch whipped cream. Save a seat for Ron and Hermione, y’all.
Feeling bubbly? Like seriously bubbly? Honeydukes Wizard Sundae is the bright pink drink of our childhood dreams. A halo of grape cotton candy is wrapped around a martini glass. A scoop of vodka infused bubblegum ice cream is added on top with a chocolate lightning bolt (because this drink is the chosen one). A generous champagne pour over brings the drink to life.
Grab your Nimbus 2000, or prepare to apparate for this Hogsmeade Flight. This includes lemon sherbet, an homage to Dumbledore’s favorite candy, a mini boozy Butterbeer, a mini cinnamon whisky pumpkin pie, and chocolate frogs.
This ain’t Madam Pomfrey’s pumpkin juice. This fall-centric drink is crafted with cinnamon whiskey pumpkin pie ice cream, Irish cream, vanilla, Irish cream whipped cream, and a cinnamon whiskey pumpkin pie. Be still, my heart.
It’s a feast for the eyes and the soul, whether you’re a muggle or a wizard. Floating lights, and magic wands will transport you back to the wonderful world of Harry Potter. On the wall visitors will ind the fantastic phrase “I solemnly swear that I’m up to no good.”
