#1 Ron Freezely
Appropriately named after its redheaded inspiration, the Ron Freezley is a play on a frozen strawberry daiquiri.
#2 The Order of the Phoenix
Rise again from the ashes of a long work week with the Order of the Phoenix. This drink is a delicious vodka concoction that featured flavors of honey crisp apples, fresh blackberries and has a shot of shimmery mango liqueur.
#3 Golden Snitch
Don’t fall off your broomstick, or the bar stool, chasing this Golden Snitch. This is a shot of cream horchata liqueur with spicy cinnamon apple and a golden sugar rim.
Sporting the house’s signature colors, this gin drink combines the fruity flavors of orange and red berries with raspberry liqueur and a shimmery berry liqueur. It is balanced off with lime juice and is topped with golden edible stars. Ten points for Gryffindor!
This diabolical shot caters to your dark side with a mix of fruity and herbal flavors of melon and Jägermeister highlighting the Slytherin house colors.
Known for their wit and wisdom this drink embodies the Hogwarts house that it’s named after. The Ravenclaw is a whiskey drink with bourbon, fresh blackberries, pineapple juice and a swirl of black liqueur.
The Hufflepuff is fair play with its fruity flavors and rum, balanced with the tangy punch of chartreuse and sweetness of pineapple juice with bitters and mint.
#8 The Cloak of Invisibility
You won’t hide from the dance floor after trying this vodka drink made with fresh muddled blackberries with flavors of mint, pear and strawberries and topped with lemon lime soda.
#9 Professor Rumpledore
Make your head spin with the headmaster’s icy shot of peppermint and shimmery mango flavors and Rumple. Nitwit! Blubber! Oddmint! Tweak!
Enter a mystical world of wizards, witches and unicorns at The Unicorn Club at 222 E. 1st St. from 9 p.m.- 1:30 a.m. to get these one-of-a-kind drinks.
“We like to throw parties where people can immerse themselves in the theme and we thought Harry Potter would be fun,” says Green. “We figure more people are avid readers like ourselves, so of course a magical place like Unicorn Club would be ideal to host the event.”
The event will also include movies playing on all the screens in Enso and the Unicorn Club along with DJ Uber and DJ Asfistaface spinning some magical jams. There will be floating candles, a place to take party pictures and pieces showing school spirit for each of the four Hogwarts houses.
Donning your best dress robes is encouraged, but not required.
Free admission, but you must be 21 or older. Don't bother fooling the bouncers with an aging potion!
Better luck next year, ickle firsties.
