Are you still fawning over Gilderoy Lockhart? Do you want to get him a large bottle of Odgen’s Old Firewhiskey for his birthday but don’t know where to find it? Not to worry, I’m sure he wouldn’t mind if you gifted him a bottle of Sazerac’s Fireball instead. It’s easy to find even in muggle stores, and is probably named for the burning sensation as it goes down–much like what you’d expect from the breath of a Chinese Fireball.
For the more enterprising of you (and those who want to serve Firewhiskey to underage wizards), you can even make your own Firewhiskey! All you need are Atomic Fireballs, whiskey and/or apple juice.
We used 1 atomic fireball per ounce of liquid. Initially we tried using less, but it wasn’t enough. However, if you don’t like spicy things you may want to start with less and add more as needed.
Leave the candy/juice or whiskey mixture to sit for about 6 hours until the fireballs are mostly dissolved. Warning: your drink will turn REALLY red. It won’t look like whiskey or apple juice anymore. It looks like something brewed up by Professor Snape. This would be fun to serve out of a cauldron!
Next, simply strain the mixture and enjoy! And don’t forget about these awesome labels you can print!
*note: make sure you label this stuff well. You won’t be able to tell the difference between juice and whiskey unless you sniff it. Whiskey is on the right, apple juice on the left in the Ask Me Another shot glass.
