Halloween Witch’s Brew

Would you like to try my Eye of Newt Brew?  It is guaranteed to make you ten years younger, but you get to keep the wisdom you have already attained.

The Eye of Newt sinks to the bottom, leaving you with a little surprise at the bottom of your cup.  Enjoy, and bottoms up!

Here’s the recipe:

Pureed newt skin (Happy Planet Extreme Green fruit smoothie or other green beverage)

Bat saliva (vodka)

Eye of Newt (frozen grapes)

Blood of a werewolf, cooked until no colour remains (club soda)

How to brew the concoction:

Carefully combine the ingredients whie chanting the following:

Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble,
Double, double, toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
