Happy Hour | Magical Cocktails with #MixedWithTrop

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetThis #MixedWithTrop post is a collaboration between my friends at Megan Media and Tropicana. All opinions are my own.

With the weather getting colder and the days getting shorter, I love taking my girls night out and turning it into a girls night in. One of my groups’ favorite activities is to get together with some good food, a good movie, and of course, a few good cocktails.

Lately we’ve all been re-watching the Harry Potter films, so in anticipation of our next movie night, I put my mixologist cap on, pulled out the old cauldron and mixed together a Harry Potter inspired cocktail that is sure to rival whatever they are serving down at The Three Broomsticks.   

When making a mixed cocktail, I always try to find ingredients that allow me to get my mixing on without having to do a ton of extra work, which is why Tropicana Premium Drinks are perfect for at-home mixology, as I don’t need to mix together a simple syrup or worry about having lemon or lime juice on hand; Tropicana Premium Drinks are kinda like cocktail one-stop shopping.

My Harry Potter Golden Snitch inspired cocktail is a little bit sweet, a little bit sour and a whole lot of bubbly, because everything’s better with bubbles.

To make this cocktail you’ll need the following:

Start with clean Champagne Flutes. Pour about 1 oz of White Rum in the bottom of each flute.

I add a bit more flare, I serve my magical cocktail with some treats I’ve been saving for a special day.
