To celebrate the release of the trailer announcement for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, we ourselves are heading back into the Wizarding World. Today we make a stop in Diagon Alley and try the Pear Cider with Firewhisky found inside the Leaky Cauldron. While the Wizarding World has blessed us Muggles with some fantastic beers such as Dragon Scale and Hog’s Head Ale, Blishen’s Firewhisky is our first taste of liquor enjoyed by wizards and witches. Known for filling one’s body with courage, Firewhisky can be purchased as a single shot, a double, or as we recommend: mixed with pear cider (you can’t go wrong having it with apple cider either). Here’s a toast to Alastor Moody, Cedric Diggory, Fred Weasley, Remus Lupin, Nymphadora Tonks and all the great people we have lost over the years but will live forever in our hearts.

Ingredients: Pear cider, Blishen’s Firewhisky, and a pinch of magic.
