Golden Snitch Champagne | Harry Potter Cocktails Super Hungry? Jump to the Recipe

Hold on to your porkkeys, hungry people. Harry Potter week isn't over yet! Today we meet up with Arthur Weasley and the gang to find Amos Diggory and Cedric to hop on a portkey from Stoatshead Hill to the Quidditch World Cup.

Quidditch is a wildly popular wizard sport that's played on broomsticks. The end goal is to capture the Golden Snitch - the ball worth the most points and also the smallest anf fastest ball in the pitch. The Golden Snitch must be caught by the Seeker to officially end the game. At Hogwarts, Harry is the Seeker and captain of the Gryffindor Quidditch team.

In the Goblet of Fire, Harry and the Weasleys meet up with Cedric Diggory and his father near the Burrow, where they grab a portkey fashioned out of an old boot. Portkeys are generally inconspicuous items - ones that Muggles won't just go around picking up. Harry's first time using a portkey practically made him sick - but his uneasiness was soon forgotten as he realized where they landed.

The 422nd Quidditch Worl Cup may have not been a spectacular game, but the events that came shortly after won't soon be forgotten...

This flying fizzy drink based off the Golden Snitch will surely ease any woes about the Dark Mark (and perhaps make it easier to believe You-Know-Who wasn't actually back from the dead).

With golden flakes zipping about thanks to the addition of Goldschlager mixed with a dry champagne, this cocktail is as simple as it is delicious. The more fizz the champagne has, the better. If you aren't one for champagne, you can also use a dry tonic water - though the drink won't pack quite the same punch.

If you're a lover of licorice, then you will absolutely love this drink. Sweet and pungent, this drink will make you think you are Viktor Krum flying high above the Qudditch Pitch - even if you have no Quidditch skill to speak of.

I'd like to imagine this is the drink of choice for all winning professional Quidditch matches (maybe even ones at Hogwarts too, if stuents are old enough to consume alcohol that is). The little gold flakes from the Goldschlager flit aroun the glass like tiny Snitches just waiting to be drank up.

The secret to getting the most gold flakes in your drink is to keep the Goldschlager bottle upside down until the gold flakes have settled. Then carfully tilt the bottle on its side as you crack the bottle cap and then quickly pour a shot into each glass. You should be able to capture the flakes at the top before they start to settle, optimizing your gold flakes for flying.
