Amortentia: Harry Potter Themed Cocktail

Hello Lovely,

One of the most magical things about the JK Rowling series is how very believable the food and drinks sound. No doubt about it, the Wizarding World  is a foodie paradise. And while countless muggles have tried to recreate the drinks, we’ve got a secret recipe that will rival even those of the Harry Potter Restaurant  — and you won’t need an Ollivanders magic wand to pull them off. So, round up your gang of wizards and muggles, and prepare for some serious mixologist sorcery. 

“Amortentia doesn’t create actual love, of course. That’s impossible. But it does cause a powerful infatuation or obsession. For that reason, it is probably the most dangerous potion in this room.” —Horace Slughorn
