Polyjuice Potion

You had to know that this was coming, right?  No Harry Potter party would be complete without Polyjuice Potion!  I’m sorry to say that you will not turn into a different person by drinking my version, unless of course you drink too much. But that would just be silly.  You know what they always say…..everything in moderation!

I do have a bit of a confession to make, I did not know that lime sherbet contains milk!  Silly me…so I did not actually drink this Polyjuice Potion.  I suppose I was thinking sorbet, and didn’t realize that they are different things?  Who knows.

It also looked much more ominous when I first made it…..

Versus the next day when I poured it back into the punch bowl to take the official photos, lol.  I added more soda hoping to get that frothy, bubbly look again, but no such luck. 🙁

So the moral of this story is this.  Add your lime sherbet to a large punch bowl.  Pour in the vodka and lemon-lime soda…and serve immediately!

When the party is over, pour the remaining punch down the drain…..it will not keep in the refrigerator! 😉

If lime isn’t your thing, I also made Butter Beer Cocktails…..

and my favorite punch, Witches Brew Cocktail…..

I bet you could even convince your friends that this Pumpkintini, is actually Pumpkin Juice!

      Oughto, that sounds like a fun story, lol. 🙂 Vodka puts me to sleep, rum makes me silly. You would think that it wouldn’t make a difference which type of alcohol, but it does!!
