Love Potion Recipe Ingredients

(measurements for 1 cocktail each)

For the non-alcoholic French Martini Love Potion recipe:

  • 50ml pomegranate juice

  • 75ml pineapple juice

  • juice of half lime

For the alcoholic classic French Martini love potion:

  • 75ml pineapple juice

  • 25ml chambord

  • 25ml vodka

To decorate:

  • raspberry powder or edible gold and silver glitter

  • honey (to decorate)

  • fresh strawberries

French Martini Love Potion Method:

  1. To begin, prepare your martini glass decoration by dipping a brush into the honey and painting a line inside your glass - as it's My Harry Potter Kitchen I've gone for a signature lightning bolt. Cover the honey with raspberry powder or glitter and tip out the excess. Place the glasses in the fridge to set (Wizard Tip! For a longer lasting effect you can also freeze the glasses)

  2. To create strawberry hearts, wash the fresh strawberries and cut out 1 cm slices with the skin-side showing. Use a heart cutter to cut out your heart shape.

  3. For the non-alcoholic love potion French Martinit recipe. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice and pour over the pineapple juice and pomegranate juice. Roll the lime on a work surface to help release the juice and then cut in half. Squeeze half the juice in the shaker too. Place a lid on top and shake hard for 30 seconds.

  4. For the alcoholic classic French Martini. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice and pour over the pineapple juice, vodka, and chambord. Place a lid on top and shake hard for 30 seconds.

  5. Remove the glasses from the fridge or freezer and strain the drink in, shaking out the foam. Garnish with the strawberry hearts and additional powder and serve immediately.

Viola! Creating your own love potion cocktail has never been easier!
