"He's got lots o' rats an' some brandy fer the journey . . . An' I've packed his teddy bear in case he gets lonely. . . . Bye Bye, Norbert! ... Mommy will never forget you!"
-- Hagrid (PS15)
Brandy is a variety of alcohol. It is also a staple for anyone caring for a young dragon. Dragon Breeding for Pleasure and Profit instructs readers to feed newly hatched dragons a bucket of brandy mixed with chicken blood every thirty minutes (PS14). And Hagrid packed some brandy for Norbert(a) when before Charlie and his friends took him/her off to Romania (PS15).
- Aunt Marge accused Harry's parents of being drunks while she herself was getting sloshed on wine and brandy (PA2).
