The Hogwarts Express

Did y’all know it was Harry Potter weekend on ABC family?

It is, and this is the perfect cock-a-tail to be sippin’ on while your watching The Prisoner of Azkaban for the upmteenth time!

The best part about it is the sweet hint of butterscotch that mingles beautifully with the other flavors and makes you feel all warm and cozy inside, almost like you’re a house elf boozed up on Butterbeer.

Don’t drink too many of them though…these babies are full of double espresso vodka which not only packs a punch, but it’s also impregnated with basilisk venom caffeine.

As you can tell from today’s and Tuesday’s Skinny on Me post, I am *OBSESSED* with Harry Potter.

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE everything about the Wizarding World.

Have y’all been yet?!?

It’s sooooo flipping amazing! I loved every second of it!

If you haven’t been, then I promise I will tell you all about next week.

But, for today, sit back, relax, and let the Hogwarts Express work its magic.
