‘You know what’ Ron murmured, looking over at the bar with enthusiasm. ‘We could order anything we liked in here. I bet that bloke would sell us anything, he wouldn’t care. I’ve always wanted to try Firewhiskey–‘

‘You – are – a – prefect.’ snarled Hermione.

‘Oh,’ said Ron, the smile fading from his face. ‘Yeah…’

– J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix


The inspiration for Firewhisky came from a bottle of Fireball, a cinnamon flavoured whisky. While I never did get around to tasting their version, a browse online gave me some direction to make my own blend. I adjusted amounts and left out the chili, leaving me with a smooth, subtle yet spicy blend. Those more daring might enjoy adding back in the chili for a more fiery kick. Even if you’re not a fan of whisky, the addition of brown sugar and cinnamon, makes this version of Ogden’s Old Firewhisky very drinkable.
