With Halloween only a few days away, time to get into the ghoulish spirit with this Harry Potter themed cocktail. I’ve had this original Death Eater wand from Universal for a couple years so I wanted to make a drink themed after it for the spooky season. I immediately thought such a drink would be strong, bitter, and slightly sour so that’s what I went for. The absinthe mixture on top have it even an extra kick and I had to throw a nice mangled looking chunk of pomegranate on top to complete the vibe. I could honestly picture a Death Eater chilling and sipping on this while waiting to be called upon by the Dark Lord. Cheers and keep it spooky out there!
