Witch’s Brew: Litha Drinks

The art and magic of potions has been a part of the witch’s existence since before there were witches, and alcohol has been around just as long. The science of blending the two is a special kind of alchemy. Here are two recipes for your magical Litha celebration.


Backwoods Witch Litha Lemonade

4 parts fresh lemonade (2 part fresh squeezed lemon juice, 2 parts water)

1 fresh strawberry; sliced

1 fresh strawberry for garnish; optional





Add moonshine and lemon juice to chilled tumbler with ice, add strawberries; ( muddle if desired, or leave sliced for a moonshiney little snack at the end) add strawberry for garnish. Bless your Litha Lemonade, thank the god and the goddess for such a delightful treat and enjoy!

For the sweeteeth among us, add a raw sugar rim; muddling the strawberries will also add a layer of sweet.
