The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando is a magical place serving up fun attractions, thrilling rides, and delicious foods and beverages.
Both Hogsmeade in Islands of Adventure and Diagon Alley in Universal Studios Florida are definitely family-friendly; however, more mature guests can easily find a good time, especially if they enjoy themed adult beverages.
The six (6) best Harry Potter-inspired alcoholic drinks at Universal Orlando are:
- Fire Whisky
- Hog’s Tea
- The Triple
- Pear Dazzle
- Dragon’s Scale
- Wizard’s Brew.
Interestingly, many of these drinks are not found on any menu, but if you ask the bartender nicely, they’ll be happy to pour one for you.
Follow along for more information about the best adult beverages from the Potterverse and where you can find them at Universal Orlando.
Guests ordering alcohol at Universal Orlando must be at least 21 years old and may be asked to present a valid, government-issued ID, such as a driver’s license or passport.
1. Fire Whisky
Fire Whisky is the drink of choice for many prominent characters in the Harry Potter book series, and Universal Orlando has created its very own version of this fictional distilled spirit.
Visitors to The Wizarding World who are fans of Fireball will enjoy the bite of cinnamon and the warm, burning sensation from every sip of Fire Whisky.
Blishen’s Fire Whisky is served at the Hog’s Head Pub in Hogsmeade (found at the back of the Three Broomsticks) or at The Hopping Pot, the Leaky Cauldron, or the Fountain of Fair Fortune, in Diagon Alley.
Fire Whisky is 35% ABV (70 Proof) and can be served on the rocks, neat, or in specialty cocktails.
Fire Whisky Cocktails
One of the most popular mixed drinks at Universal Orlando is made with Fire Whisky.
Bartenders combine Fire Whisky and Strongbow Cider to create the Fire and Strongbow Cocktail, which tastes like apple pie.
This delicious cocktail is perfect for parkgoers who don’t love the taste or burn of whisky but want an authentic alcoholic beverage from the world of Harry Potter.
The Fire and Strongbow Cocktail isn’t listed on any menu, but if you place your order at the bar, most bartenders can whip one up if they have the ingredients on hand.
2. Hog’s Tea
Hog’s Tea is the Hog’s Head version of a Long Island Iced Tea, containing all the same ingredients but with one notable difference – it’s made with raspberry tea instead of a splash of Coke.
It’s true that Hog’s Tea is not an authentic beverage from the Harry Potter books, but it’s a fan favorite of parkgoers who stop by the Hog’s Head for a drink.
This tasty (and strong!) cocktail is not on the Hog’s Head menu, but if you speak to the bartender, they’ll make it for you.
While Hog’s Tea is named for the Hog’s Head Pub, adult guests may also find it at one of the other Wizarding taverns.
3. The Triple
The Triple is a beer-based beverage with three distinct, colorful layers.
The bottom layer is Strongbow Cider, the lightest of the three layers.
The middle layer is usually golden from the Wizard’s Brew or Hog’s Head Brew.
The top layer is Guinness, a dark-colored (and extremely popular) Irish Stout.
This satisfying adult beverage is also sometimes called a Deathly Hallows, referencing the last of the Harry Potter books – but many bartenders who make this drink may not use that name.
Visitors can order a Triple at the Hog’s Head in Hogsmeade or at The Hopping Pot or the Fountain of Fair Fortune in Diagon Alley.
Just remember that The Triple is not officially on the menu at these spots, so place your order with the bartender to avoid any confusion.
4. Pear Dazzle
The Pear Dazzle, like the Triple and the Hog’s Tea, is not listed on any menu, meaning guests who want to try it need to check availability with the bartender directly.
However, it’s become a fruity, refreshing park staple that is not as strong as other drinks on this list.
A Pear Dazzle is made with non-alcoholic Pear Cider, vodka, and lemonade garnished with a cherry on top.
Guests can order this drink at the Hog’s Head in Hogsmeade or The Hopping Pot and the Fountain of Fair Fortune in Diagon Alley.
5. Hog’s Head Brew
Hog’s Head Brew is a smooth Scottish Ale produced by the Carib Brewery in Cape Canaveral, Florida.
This draft beer is only served at the Hog’s Head Pub in Hogsmeade, and visitors who want to drink their ale in style can order it in a special Hog’s Head souvenir tankard.
6. Witch’s Brew
Witch’s Brew is a flavorful dark stout with a slightly sweet taste that many visitors enjoy.
Visitors can order this draft beer in Hogsmeade while dining at the Three Broomsticks or grabbing a pint at the Hog’s Head.
In Diagon Alley, guests can find this brew at the Leaky Cauldron, The Hopping Pot, and the Fountain of Fair Fortune.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando is a surprisingly great place for mature guests to sit back, relax, and enjoy some incredible adult beverages.
The six best alcoholic drinks based on the Potterverse are Fire Whisky, Hog’s Tea, The Triple, the Pear Dazzle, Hog’s Head Brew, and Witch’s Brew.
In Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, the Three Broomsticks and the Hog’s Head are licensed to serve alcohol.
The Hog’s Head has the best drink selection and offers bartenders making secret drinks that aren’t on the menu.
In Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida, visitors can order alcohol, including some unlisted drinks, at The Hopping Pot and the Fountain of Fair Fortune.
The Leaky Cauldron also sells adult beverages but may not be equipped to make drinks that aren’t on the menu.
