Potions From Harry Potter made Real! | How to Drink

Published on 21 Mar 2020 / In Film & Animation

Escape with me to Hogwarts where I'll be your new Potion's Master, today we're brewing up Amortentia, Felix Felicis, and Pepperup Potion. Don't be late, or there will be house demerits!

Today I'm brewing up draughts of three very well known potions from the Wizarding World and I hope you're taking notes on this because there will be a quiz at the end of class. Sorry, couldn't help myself. The world of Harry Potter contains so many evocative potions that it would be easy to wind up with a 90 minute episode here, so instead let's focus on three well known potions and we'll meet for another class down the road, ok? Amortentia, Felix Felicis and Pepperup Potion are all mentioned at pivotal moments in the series and occupy a fair amount of both screen time and page space, so they seemed to be fantastic places to start. In all of these cases I had to make difficult decisions about whether to take from the book description of the films depictions, as there are differences between them. I tried to strike a balance, though it seems a may have leaned a bit more towards the book than the films. Amortentia is described as smelling like whatever the imbiber is attracted too, giving it an ever changing quality. Felix Felicis is described as looking like molten gold. For the pepperup potion we get clearer descriptions of it's effects than it's appearance, so I'm going from there.
