Gurdyroot Infusion (Harry Potter mocktail)
2 oz Orange Juice
3 oz Sparkling Red Grape Juice
1 oz Ginger Ale
1 slice of fresh Ginger as a garnish
May is the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts and I thought it would be an opportune time to make a Harry Potter drink! This mocktail is alcoholic free and very easy to mix in large quantities, making it a perfect drink for muggles (or wizards and witches) of all ages at a Harry Potter themed party. For more info on the inspiration behind the drink and to learn how to mix it, check out the video below.
Sonic Screwdriver (Doctor Who mocktail)
3 oz Orange juice
1.5 oz Rose’s Blue Raspberry Mix
.5 oz Lime juice
3 oz Ginger ale
Directions: Mix all ingredients in a highball glass over ice and stir. Yell “Geronimo!” and serve. It doesn’t do wood.
Doctor Who returns to TV next weekend with the 50th Anniversary special! It’s incredible to think about how a show could stick around and adapt as long as it has. As a giant Whovian, I had to create a drink to celebrate. There are many sonic screwdriver cocktails on the net already and I thought it might be time to create something that everyone enjoyed.

Rainbow Road (Super Mario Kart cocktail)
4 oz. Orange juice
½ oz. Gin
⅓ oz. Grenadine
⅓ oz. Rum
3 oz. Vodka
2 splashes Blue Curacao
Directions: Mix orange juice and gin together and pour them into the glass. Then, stir the rum and grenadine together and pour it slowly down the side of the glass - it should settle at the bottom, turning the bottom red and the area immediately above it orange. Mix the vodka and blue Curacao together and then layer it on top of the orange juice. The top should remain blue, but some should settle down to create a green layer. Like Super Mario Kart's toughest course, this drink may be difficult to finish.
A note from the creator:
People! The first Mario Kartgame game out for Super Nintendo 21 YEARS AGO TODAY! Super Mario Kartwas the first time we got to fall into infinite space off the seizure-inducing Rainbow Road. So, we really had no choice but to make this powerful, colorful, easy-to-spill drink:
In addition to taking our inaugural drifts around Rainbow Road, on September 1, 1992 we triggered boos and lightning bolts, played as Koopa Troopa and Bowser, and tied balloons to our karts and shot each other with shells FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER. The original game is still a ton of fun, but it’s great to see how much those basic elements have evolved over the last 21 years.
Here, have a taste of the madness! (video below):
