Celebrating those movies that transport us to a completely new world, show us an amazing story and give us a hero to root for is something we love to do. While past generations have had Jedis, James Bond and John Wayne, we've got the Boy Who Lived. That's right - Harry Potter!
Harry and his friends are some of the greatest characters to grace the big screen in recent years, standing for so much good. While the books will forever be treasured, the movies are epic films we'll never tire of watching.
The easiest, funnest and most appropriate way we can think to celebrate Harry and his story is with Harry Potter themed recipes. Not only are they perfect for kicking back and watching the films with, they're also a nod to the world J.K. Rowling has created for us to all enjoy.
From frozen butterbeer to cockroach clusters, we've mixed up a few of our favorite Harry Potter foods to share. So, let the magic of Harry Potter come to life with these blockbuster inspired mocktails, cocktails, shakes, treats, and nibbles!
