Halloween ChandelierSchnapps is the official spirit of Halloween, by decree of Samhain.
The Bell InnOne room at this pub at Castle Hedingham, Halstead, Essex, UK, is said to be haunted by a young girl with black hair that has been known to suddenly whip the bedclothes from people staying in her room. There could also be the ghost of an old man who knocks on the bedroom doors. The Bell Inn has a 300-year-old history.
The Leaky Cauldron and Harry PotterThe Leaky Cauldron is a pub and inn for wizards, located on the Muggle street of Charing Cross Road in London, offering food, drinks and rooms to rent. It was founded by Daisy Dodderidge (1467-1555) in 1500 "to serve as a gateway between the non-wizarding world and Diagon Alley." The current barman and innkeeper is a wizard named Tom. On the main floor, the inn has a bar, several private parlour rooms, and a large dining room. On the upper floors, there are a number of rooms available; Harry has stayed in Room 11 which has a talking mirror and windows that allow him to look out onto Charing Cross Road. People often stay at The Leaky Cauldron when they come up to London on shopping trips. The pub serves as a way of entering into Diagon Alley from the Muggle world for Muggle-borns and their parents (both of whom, until the first letter from Hogwarts, have no magical knowledge or means of entering). The rear of The Leaky Cauldron opens onto a chilly little courtyard where a brick (found by counting three up and two across) is tapped three times. JJK Rowling has revealed that Hannah Abbott becomes the landlady of the Leaky Cauldron, and lives above the pub with her husband Neville Longbottom, when he is not teaching Herbology at Hogwarts.

Goblin GhouladeThis is so easy to make and we like especially the tart cranberry juice and sweet black raspberry liqueur can make any cocktail look like blood. For some added effect, an "eyeball" made of radish and blueberry is added on top, warning visitors of what can happen to them if they leave your party early. Ingredients 1 oz. Vodka 1 oz. Black raspberry liqueur. The French make liqueurs using 'mure', blackberry which we favour. 1 oz. Lime juice 1 oz. Cranberry juice 1 Radish 1 Blueberry Preparation: Pour all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake. Strain drink into a martini glass. To create the eyeballs, peel 1 radish per glass and leave some red skin to form veins. Hollow out center of radish and place a small blueberry to form the eye. Serve eyeball floating or on a drink skewer.
A Blue SatanGuy thinks this is possibly the simplest cocktail of all to make: 1 ½ oz gin ½ oz blue curacao 1 oz lemon juice Add tonic or soda to taste Shake with ice and serve chilled and up in a cocktail glass. Garnish with a floating lemon or orange slice.
