Rosanna Pansino's Harry Potter-Themed Punch Will Cast a Love Spell on Your Valentine
The YouTube star's lemon raspberry punch is "fun, simple, and unique"
The YouTube star and host of Nerdy Nummies recreates the “love potion” from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince that is said to smell different to each person, according to what is attractive to them.
Pansino, who says she smells pizza, her dog Cookie, and chocolate, designed the recipe to be easy for viewers at home. “Any time I am test baking, I like to try a recipe multiple different ways, even if it’s something as simple as a drink,” Pansino tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I wanted this recipe to be fun, simple, and unique, which is why I decided to make it this way.”
If you don’t have all of the ingredients on-hand (recipe below), Pansino says not to worry. “Just use what you have around you!” she says. “Not every recipe needs to be exactly like mine, especially if you don’t have access to the same ingredients I use. I always like making ‘potion’ themed drinks as well because they really work in any kind of glass or bottle.”
