Thirsty Thursday – Mad Hatter Potion

I’ve been feeling very Disney recently!  So, when I needed a group drink for a Disney screening party I went with a recipe I found on Pinterest a while back, called The Mad Hatter Potion.

It was an interesting recipe, and sounded like it would taste yummy.  I gathered the ingredients: a bottle of white wine (I went with an inexpensive sweet white wine), 1 cup of orange juice, 1/4 cup of sugar (I added some extra to rim the glasses), 1/4 of brandy, 1/4 of blue curacao, 2 cups of club soda and ice.

Mad Hatter Potion Ingredients

First, I poured the wine into the pitcher.  Then I added the orange juice, sugar, brandy, and blue curacao.

I stirred the mixture to combine the ingredients and dissolve the sugar.  When it was well mixed, I put the pitcher in the fridge to chill.  The recipe suggests 2 hours, but I left it to cool while I finished setting everything up for the screening party.  (We were having a Disney movie marathon!)

Chillin' in the Fridge

When everything was nicely cooled off, I removed the pitcher and the club soda from the refrigerator.  I added the club soda to the mixture by pouring it gently down the side of the pitcher like the recipe instructed.

When all of the ingredients were combined, it was time to rim the glasses with sugar and fill them with ice to serve the yummy punch.

The final drink was really very delicious!  I might have to make this again…
