Butterbeer. I also have a Frozen Butterbeer recipe!

Butterbeer

Check it out! As I continue my little celebration of the release of Harry potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 1, today I get to share with you my favorite treat that I have ever, ever made: butterbeer! It seems to be the Harry Potter food that most people want to try more than any other! Fortunately, now you can, of course, at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. And the best part about it, is that you know it’s the right stuff, because Jo Rowling herself taste approved the park’s recipe! I was lucky enough to go to WWOHP back in June. It. was. amazing. As for the butterbeer…well, I have to admit that it was definitely on the top of my list of things to do there! It was so delicious! There are several homemade butterbeer recipes that have popped up online since the opening of WWOHP, but I have to admit, I haven’t tried any of them. I started with the butterbeer itself.

I considered butterscotch syrup, but ruled it our for two reasons: 1. 2. Jelly Shots - Mimosa. Mimosa Jelly Shots, cut with an oval cookie cutter and skewered with edible flower petals The fourth submission for the End of Summer Cocktail survey is a no brainer.

Jelly Shots - Mimosa

It is so obvious in fact, that I can't believe this cocktail didn't make it into the upcoming Jelly Shot Test Kitchen Recipe book. (Good thing the recipe follows!) So, without further aediu we present Mimosa Jelly Shot, a mildly alcoholic jelly shot, lovely on skewers, molded or cut into cubes. Mimosa breaks two of my cardinal jelly shot rules: 1) don't gild the lily, and 2) strain to remove solids. And speaking of juice, fresh squeezed is specified in the recipe - it really does make a difference. Mimosa Jelly ShotI ascribe to Ina Garten's garnishing philosophy- garnish according to the actual flavorings used in preparation of the item. Recommended Pan: 9x9 cake pan Pour juice and sugar into a small saucepan and sprinkle with the gelatin.

Lemon Drop Jell-O Shots

Good food, good fun, and . . . some darn good Jell-o shots to add to your tailgate party or Sunday football potluck gatherings. Lemon Drop Jello-O Shots Lemon Drop Jell-O Shots Pre-season has started and with that comes the ever popular football potluck and sometimes tailgate parties amongst my group of friends. I’m not a football die-hard; in fact I don’t even watch football. I must admit, I don’t get to them like I once did since having Cole. That being said, I will be bringing these fun Lemon Drop Jell-O Shots. I also made limes and oranges, but they didn’t make it in the final picture.

No recipe, just a few notes and the step-by step pictures (using a lime) to making these Jell-O shots.

This Strawberry Basil Lemonade is coming to ya from the archives but I’ve given it a bit of a face lift.

Strawberry Basil Lemonade

Strawberry Basil Lemonade was basically the first drink recipe I ever post on WGC and it’s been my most requested drink ever since. It’s a refreshing blend of homemade lemonade that gets fresh strawberries and basil pureed into the mixture. Depending on who’s enjoying this with me, I’ll add a glug or two of gin or just leave it “virgin” and enjoy it over some ice. Either way, it’s the best drink out there and you should probably be drinking this come Monday by the pool working on your tan. At least that’s what I’ll be doing poolside, in Tucson, with my besties. And while this doesn’t directly figure into book tour, I’ve also managed to schedule just about every single meal while I’m in Tucson so I can hit up my favorite places to stuff my face while I’m there.

So in the meantime, grab some lemons, strawberries and a handful of fresh basil and let’s make some cocktails or mocktails!
