What’s Up, Hungry People

It’s officially Harry Potter week here in the Starving Chef’s kitchen. Every year during the last week in July, I eat and drink all things Hogwarts to celebrate The Boy Who Lived.

Today we’re apparating into Snape’s dungeon to concoct fizzy pumpkin juice that doubles as a love potion—because anyone who drinks it is sure to fall in love with you. Inspired by the magical world of Harry Potter, this fizzy pumpkin juice is a hit at any themed party.

The blend of pureed pumpkin, apple juice, and pineapple juice, with a touch of cloves, allspice, and cinnamon, creates a delightful potion. And for the adults, a splash of champagne turns this drink into a magically delicious alcoholic concoction.

Here’s What You Need

  • Pureed pumpkin – Gives the drink its distinct pumpkin flavor and creamy texture.
  • Apple juice – Adds a sweet, tart element that complements the pumpkin.
  • Pineapple juice – Brings a tropical sweetness and balances the other flavors.
  • Sparkling white grape juice or champagne – Adds fizz and makes it festive; champagne for an adult version.
  • Cloves – Adds warmth and a hint of spice.
  • Allspice – Brings in a subtle, aromatic flavor.
  • Cinnamon – Adds a warm, comforting spice.
  • Whipped cream topping – Adds a creamy finish and extra indulgence.
  • Pumpkin pie spice – Provides an extra layer of spice and aroma for the topping.

Let’s Cook

In a large bowl or cauldron, stir together the pureed pumpkin, apple juice, pineapple juice, and sparkling white grape juice. Make sure everything is well combined.

Chilling the Brew

Pop your potion in the fridge and let it chill for at least one hour, or until you’re ready to serve. This will help the flavors meld together and make it nice and refreshing.

Stirring the Elixir

Before serving, give your potion a good, vigorous stir. The ingredients tend to settle, and you want every sip to be magical.

Serving the Magic

Ladle the fizzy pumpkin juice into individual cups. Top each with a generous dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice. Your guests will feel like they’ve stepped right into the Great Hall at Hogwarts.

Tips for a Magical Fizzy Pumpkin Juice

  • Chill your ingredients beforehand: For the best flavor and fizz, make sure all your juices and pureed pumpkin are chilled before mixing. This helps the flavors meld better and keeps your drink refreshingly cold.
  • Use fresh pumpkin if possible: If you can, use fresh pumpkin that you’ve pureed yourself. It has a richer flavor compared to canned pumpkin and can make a noticeable difference (but is totally not a requirement!)
  • Adjust the spices to taste: Feel free to play around with the amount of cloves, allspice, and cinnamon. If you prefer a spicier drink, add a little more. If you’re serving it to kids, you might want to tone down the spices.
  • Stir well before serving: The juices and pumpkin puree tend to separate as they sit. A good stir just before serving ensures each cup is perfectly mixed and flavorful.
  • Serving adults? Add champagne: For an adult-friendly version, substitute sparkling white grape juice with champagne. It adds a nice kick and makes the drink even more festive.
  • Garnish creatively: Don’t stop at whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice. You can add a cinnamon stick as a stirrer or rim the glasses with colored sugar for an extra magical touch.
  • Make it ahead of time: This recipe is perfect for making ahead. Just mix the ingredients and chill. Stir well before serving, and you’re ready to go without any last-minute hassle.
  • Leftovers: If you have leftovers, store them in the fridge and stir well before serving again. The whipped cream topping is best added fresh to each serving.
  • Kid-friendly version: For a non-alcoholic version that’s still fun, use sparkling white grape juice instead of champagne. Kids will love the fizzy magic!
  • Perfect for parties: This fizzy pumpkin juice is great for parties. Serve it in a large punch bowl, and let your guests ladle their own servings. It’s a hit every time!
