Can you believe it’s been twenty years since Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was published? It’s safe to say the world has got a bit more magical since then, and it's about to get more-so thanks to a spell-binding new Harry Potter-themed cocktail menu from the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel.
The fancy-pants hangout has featured in the movies a bunch of times, from Ron and Harry flying in a car past it in the second worst film, to the famous Platform 9 ¾ at Kings Cross Station next door. So it’s only right they host a Potterhead-friendly menu from their bar the Booking Office, with drinks like Elixir of Love – amaretto, Chambord, vodka and lemon juice, served in a cauldron – as well as Minty Toad for the Road, which is mixed from peppermint liqueur served in a dark chocolate frog. And those that prefer to stay off the Butterbeer, there’s mocktails like Butterscotch Brew, served in a tankard with salted caramel, butterscotch and bubbles. Also, the drinks range from £5 to £14 in price, so you make sure you bring enough Galleons for it all. Siriusly, this is a drinks menu that’ll even make Severus smile.
The Harry Potter menu is available from 9th October at the Booking Office in the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel.
