Simple Harry Potter Cocktails: CWC 4.16

Many Wizarding cocktail recipes are way more complex than they need to be, so I sat down with my friend Lindsay to create some very simple cocktails based on various concoctions from the Wizarding World. Here are 5 simple Harry Potter inspired cocktails:

Polyjuice Potion

  • 1 part Rum
  • 1 part green juice (we used “Owl Eyes” from Shine Potions– also consider Green Machine from Naked Juices)
  • 2 parts soda water

Felix Felicis


  • 1 part Limoncello (add 1 container of Pearl dust powder to a 750 ml bottle. Be sure you get the correct powder or it will not have the same effect)
  • 2 parts sparkling wine
  • Soda water (to taste)


  • 1 part Disaronno
  • Dash of rose water
  • 1 part red juice (we used “Fairy Bubbles” from Shine Potions, though any fruit juice will work)
  • Soda Water (to taste)

Pepperup Potion

This could go a couple different ways. Here’s the one we made:

  • 1 part rum
  • 1 part spicy juice (we used “Three Laughing Monks” from Shine Potions, though you may try cranberry or cherry juice with a dash of your favorite spice like ginger or cayenne)
  • 2 parts soda water

Another thought we came up with was as follows:

  • 1 part pepper vodka
  • 2 parts cranberry juice
  • 1 part soda water


  • Splash of Butterscotch Schnapps
  • 1 part vanilla vodka
  • 1 part cream soda
  • 2 parts soda water

I hope you enjoy the recipes we came up with! If you have any improvements, leave a comment below or tweet me @GrantScovel
