Harry Potter week continues here in the Starving Chef's kitchen. Today we are descending into the dungeons to join Professor Slughorn in the brewing of a fresh draught of Felix Felicis.

In the Half-Blood Prince, Harry's potions teacher Professor Slughorn bestows upon him a small vile of liquid luck. At first, Harry tricks Ron into thinking that he gave him the Felix Felicis just prior to their biggest Quidditch match of the year - leading the Gryffindor team to victory. But little did Ron know at the time that Harry had really only given him a placebo.

They won the match regardless, but Harry was able to keep the liquid luck for himself to extract some juicy secrets from Slughorn himself...after giving Aragog a proper funeral that is.

The Muggle-friendly version is much less potent - and contains the Muggle version of magic: alcohol.

Of course, if you want to keep the liquid luck kid friendly, just don't add any alcohol.
