polyjuice potion

The Polyjuice potion is featured many times in the Harry Potter books. It plays a crucial role in the second and fourth years for Harry, Hermione, and Ron. It also helps Draco smuggle Death Eaters into the castle in the 6th book, and disguises seven Harry Potters leaving the Dursley’s home for the final time. Finally, it assists in infiltrating both the Ministry of Magic and the Gringotts Wizarding Bank during the final saga. While we can’t promise you any magical powers or a disguise when using this recipe for punch, we can promise it will be delicious!

Polyjuice Potion Ingredients

The Harry Potter Polyjuice potion uses ingredients like knotgrass, powdered bicon horn, and shredded bloomslang skin. I think we can do one better when making our own. How about we use

  • Lime sherbet
  • Lemon Lime Soda(I like Sprite)
  • Ginger Ale
  • Green Food Coloring
  • Whipped Cream

Polyjuice Potion Recipe

This recipe could be any easier. First,  scoop the lime sherbet into a large punch bowl or drink dispenser. Then, slowly pour in the lemon-lime soda and ginger ale. Depending on the color you want, you can add a few drops of green food coloring here while stirring gently. Serve it immediately with more lime sherbet and whipped cream on top.

Frequently Asked Questions

What If I Can’t Find Lime Sherbet?

Lime sherbet gives the drink a green hue, as well as some fun froth. If you can’t find lime sherbet specifically, you can always add rainbow sherbet or lemon sherbet. Alternatively, you can also make your own. It would be especially easy if you have an ice cream maker! Just combine lime juice, lime zest, half and half, and sugar. Pour into your ice cream maker and follow the directions for sherbet in your manufacturer’s guide. 

Can I Make It Ahead of Time?

For this particular recipe, it’s best to prepare it immediately before serving. The best part is getting that frozen, frothy deliciousness from the sherbet and soda combination. Preparing it ahead of time could cause a loss of carbonation in the soda, or result in the sherbet melting too much.

Can I Add Alcohol?

One of the best things about this recipe is that it’s completely kid-friendly. However, you can absolutely add some liquor to this drink to jazz it up a little bit! You can really add any liquor to the mix, but some good options would be tequila, rum, or a lime-flavored vodka.
