Rat Tonic Ingredients

(makes 500ml / 10 servings)


For the Rat Tonic recipe:

  • 1 lime

  • 25g ginger

  • 1 tbsp turmeric

  • 500ml apple juice

  • 2 tbsp Goji berries

  • 1 small pomegranate

  • 1 beetroot

Rat Tonic Potion Method:

  1. To begin you want to juice the lime by cutting it in half and squeezing over a bowl (Wizard Tip! Roll the lime on a surface before cutting to help release the juice)

  2. Peel and grate the ginger and then place a saucepan on a low heat. Add in the lime juice, ginger and turmeric and stir until well combined. Allow the paste to cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.

  3. Pour in the apple juice and goji berries and then simmer for 5 minutes.

  4. While the base is infusing remove the pomegranate seeds by slicing in half and bashing the top over a bowl until all the seeds have fallen out. Slice the beetroot into rough chunks.

  5. Place the pomegranate seeds, beetroot and the warmed base into a blender and blitz until smooth.

  6. Pass the potion through a sieve to get a smoother tonic and then store in a sealed bottle, in the fridge, for up to 3 days

  7. Serve as a 50ml morning shot for an easy health kick, or top up with tonic water for a magical non-alcoholic cocktail

If Scabbers doesn't drink this all - I sure will!
