‘The potion within was splashing about merrily; it was the color of molten gold, and large drops were leaping like goldfish above the surface, though not a particle had spilled.”
-Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, J.K. Rowling
When I first heard the description of liquid luck, all I could think of was how similar to alcohol it must be. “If taken in excess, it causes giddiness, recklessness, and dangerous overconfidence”.
However, since many people want to make these recipes for kids, or not everyone drinks alcohol, I decided this needed to be a quick and simple tutorial on making a molten gold syrup that could be added to your favourite drink, rather than a specific recipe. For this to keep its Liquid Luck appearance, however, you’ll only want to mix it with either clear or yellow drinks such as:
- apple juice
- soda water
And for alcoholic drinks:
- food grade edible sprinkles
- ½ cup water
- ½ cup white sugar
- Stir together in a saucepan over medium heat, until the liquid starts to boil and the sugar melts.
- Remove from heat and let completely cool before pouring into a glass bottle for serving.
