These potent Polyjuice Potion Shots inspired by Harry Potter are perfect for your Halloween party!
Like many people my age, Harry Potter is very near and dear to my heart. I like to do a marathon of the movies every October. Of course, this means I need themed drinks and snacks.
This year, I made two shots inspired by drinks from the Harry Potter world. First up are these Polyjuice Potion shots. Not only are they a perfectly seasonal green color, they also taste super delicious!
To make them extra cute, serve them in these mini beaker shot glasses.

You may remember Polyjuice Potion from the books. It allows the person who drinks it to assume the form of someone else. The effects last anywhere from ten minutes to twelve hours, depending on how well it is brewed.
It is said that Polyjuice potion is very complicated and time-consuming to brew. There are two main parts to making the potion, as well as several individual steps in each of those parts and the whole process takes about one month to complete.
Luckily making these Polyjuice Potion shots is a much simpler process that any witch, wizard, or muggle can accomplish.
What’s in Polyjuice Potion in Harry Potter?
In the Harry Potter books, the “real” Polyjuice potion is made from:
- Lacewig Flies
- Horn of Bicorn
- Boomslang Skin
- A piece of the person you’re turning into
Since I didn’t really have any of those items on hand, I thought I’d go in a different direction for the shots.
Polyjuice Potion Shots Ingredients:
- Midori Melon
- Pineapple Juice
How To Make Polyjuice Potion In Real Life
Simply add the vodka, Midori Melon, and pineapple juice to a large beaker or another container. Mix well to combine, then pour into individual shot glasses.Print
