No Harry Potter party would be complete without a Polyjuice Potion Cocktail (or mocktail) recipe! I am sorry to say that you will not turn into a different person by drinking my version, unless of course you drink too much, but that would just be silly. You know what they always say…..everything in moderation!

Doesn’t’ that look like fun? I have been searching for lime sherbet for several years now and cannot find it anywhere! So I decided to give rainbow sherbet a try and see what would happen. At worst, the color would be a disgusting combination of colors, right? Well the actual Polyjuice Potion recipe contains batwings, and eye of newt so that would look pretty disgusting as well.

  1. Oh my gosh–you’re hosting Harry Potter parties now? When am I invited? 😉 this is my absolute favorite idea–glad you left out Goyle’s toenails though! Great recipe!

    1. Oughto, that sounds like a fun story, lol. 🙂 Vodka puts me to sleep, rum makes me silly. You would think that it wouldn’t make a difference which type of alcohol, but it does!!

  2. I made this at my Harry Potter party last night and it was AMAZING!! I added a lot more alcohol than you suggested and still couldn’t taste it lol – great drink!

  3. I featured the Polyjuice potion recipe on my blog!! Thank you for the ideas, these were amazing this halloween. Definitely a big hit at my house warming party.

  4. Our library made this (without vidka, lol) for the Harry Potter extravaganza and everyone loved it!

  5. im thinking of using this recipe for my daughters 11th birthday (minus the vodka of course) which is harry potter themed and im wondering if because of the froth on top will it keep in a punch fountain?

    1. Hmm, I have never used a punch fountain, Jaimie. Once the sherbet melts or gets stirred into the punch it is no longer frothy, but the bubbles “might” help to prolong it a bit. They will be having so much fun I doubt they will notice how frothy it is. 😉 Let me know how it works or not, now I am curious.
