Wine

To excite passion in another, this is one of the best love potions available:

To a gill of red wine in a saucepan, add a teaspoon of rosemary leaves, a teaspoon of anise seed, a teaspoon of cloves, a teaspoon of clear honey, and a teaspoon of orange rind. Also add a pinch of ground cumin and three green leaves of rose geranium.

Stir the mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and allow the potion to simmer for two minutes. Then remove it from the heat and allow it to cool until it is not steaming before straining the botanicals out through a fine sieve. Finally return the potion to the heat until vapors begin to arise and it is ready to be served to your intended.

It is said that if a human drinks from fairy wine, he or she will see fairies. If a fairy happens to drink from the same goblet, then the person will see fairies forevermore. The following is a traditional recipe for fairy wine.

  • 7 lbs. elderberries, stripped and stalked
  • 3 gallons boiling water
  • 6 cloves
  • 3 lbs. loaf sugar
  • 1 lb. seedless raisins
  • 1/2 oz. ground ginger
  • 1/2 oz. yeast

Place the berries in a large pot, and cover with the boiling water. Let the pot rest for twenty-four hours, then mash the fruit and strain it through a jelly bag. Place the strained fruit back in the pan, and add the cloves, sugar, raisins, and ginger. Boil this mixture for one hour, skimming constantly. Let it cool, and add the yeast. Bottle and cork the mixture, and let it rest for at least three months.
