Shirin Mehrotra Recreates Harry Potter’s Felix Felicis & We Need A Bottle!

Freelance food writer and travel blogger Shirin Mehrotra has been trying to bring the life out of the literary world through her project called the Literary Kitchen.

She reads books and tries to recreate ‘fantastical’ edibles. See, if I were her, I’d recreate ButterBeer and Firewhisky, for sure. Though I hear that they already serve it in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

She told Buzzfeed, “I love reading, writing and cooking and wanted to bring all of them together to create something fun for the blog. That’s when I thought of the idea of cooking one dish from every book I read this year, style it the way I imagine it in the book and write about it,”

Of late, she tried to create Felix Felicis, also known as the Liquid Luck.

The potion is available in an alcoholic version.

Dark rum – 60ml
Palm jaggery syrup – 2tsp
Orange bitters – 2-3 drops
Lime juice – ½ tsp
Cinnamon powder – a pinch
Water/Soda/Rosé wine

1. Take all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake well
2. Pour the mix in a glass and top it up with water, soda or Rose wine and gulp it down

“It took a while to put together the ingredients in my head zero in on the flavor that I wanted. I was pretty sure of using Old Monk ’cause I love it. Once I had the idea in place, it wasn’t difficult to make it!” She added.
