Around the World is an event held every year by the TKE fraternity. Each house chooses a Country of their choice and serves beverages (shots, beer, liquor) from said location. The house and host are also dressed according to the chosen location. The whole party travels from house to house, country after country, enjoying the "fruit of the land." Keeping that in mind...
We are moving into our new home next month, which is located in the same neighborhood as our 3 favorite couples: The Farmeritavilles, The Trinsons and The Terrances. We have decided to do an Around the World-suburb style-as soon as we move in. My husband was thinking UK-it's easy to do-or Germany-because we are both German. I was thinking the Scottish Highlands or more specifically...Hogwarts. I will do everything in my power to host anything having to do with HP but I think it is going to be tough convincing my husband. Perhaps we say Scotland and a wizard robe is placed here or there...and I happen to serve some of Fleur's Cream of Brie Soup served with a French Baguette or treacle tart as appetizers.
Now since this celebration is centered around "drinks," I searched and found an awesome website with Harry Potter themed drinks and shots. The Harry Potter mixology website, http://sashahalima.com/blog/2011/07/harry-potter-mixology-hagrid-hermione-ron-and-sirius-cocktail-concoctions/, features drinks named after characters and ingredients that play on their personality. For instance:
- 1 oz Kahlua
- 1 oz vodka
- Splash Coke
- Add vodka and Kahlua into a beer glass.
- Add splash of Coke.
- Fill with Guinness.
- 1 oz Tequila
- 1/3 oz Tabasco sauce
- 1 jalapeno pepper
- Muddle jalapeno pepper and Tabasco sauce.
- Strain into shot glass.
- Add tequila.
- Garnish with thin slice of jalapeno.
