Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cocktail Hogshead

HIPSTER Drink of the Week: Cinnamon Toast Crunch

Imagine heading to Hogwarts on a picturesque morning with the intentions of grabbing a cold cup of butterbeer at the Hogshead to start your day. The barmaid notices that you’re a lonely kind of muggle and offers you a delicious take on breakfast to make you magical journey just a bit better.

The journey includes a sweet drink blending FireBall Whisky, RumChata and two cubes of ice to make the perfect adult breakfast beverage called the Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

Diagon Alley Soft Opening Watch

Harry Potter-London

July 8th is the big day for followers of the Harry Potter series. If you’ve been hiding under a dozen of rock cakes, then I’m here to remind you about the grand opening celebration of Diagon Alley taking place on that day.

I don’t know about you all, but I love it when a Harry Potter event is on its way. Mainly because of the social media buzz, which grows bigger as fans share and post their own stories and pictures. One of my favorite Facebook pages to view is the Central Florida Slug Club. You will always find new fan pics of Diagon Alley and anything Harry Potter related!
