Nourish Books is here to amp up your Valentine’s/Galentine’s plans with some *EXCLUSIVE* recipes from Potions, Elixirs & Brews by Anais Alexandre! See the potion brewing in action on the book’s Tik Tok page, plus so. many. more recipes!
Why not pair this coffee brewed goodness with a slice (or two…) of Nisha Katona’s cardamom custard tart? Sugar, spice and everything nice, the perfect V-Day combo!
From Anais: ‘Your drinkable ally in arms. Walk with your head held high, grasping your favourite reusable traveling cup filled to the brim with a healthy dose of “get the hell out my face!” and just keep on walking. Oh, how the haters love to stare.’
4 tbsp whipping cream (or non-dairy alternative)
Black lava sea salt (or regular salt; you may also use the collective salt from your haters)
240ml/8fl oz/1 cup strong black coffee with 6 star anise steeped within
2 tbsp sweetener of your choice
Whip the cream until slightly thickened, then stir in the sea salt and set aside.
Sweeten the coffee with your preferred sweetener.
Strain the anise-steeped coffee into your traveler cup and top with the salted whipped cream.
Sprinkle over a little extra sea salt and enjoy!
Note on drink preference: This coffee-based potion should be made to suit your taste. If you prefer your coffee hot, ice, blended or turned into a latte with milk, it is up to you. It will not interfere with the potency of the potion. As long as you ensure the key correspondence and salt remains, it will remain magickally potent.
???? RITUAL ????
CARVE INTO A CANDLE: “ALL HARMFUL ENERGY CAST UNTO ME, RETURN IT TO ITS SOURCE, SO MOTE IT BE!”, THEN LIGHT IT. HOLD A CUP IN BOTH HANDS, CONCENTRATING FOR 3 MINS ON IMBUING REFLECTIVE ENERGY, AND REPELLING ANY NEGATIVE ENERGIES. LEAVE YOUR CUP NEXT TO THE CANDLE, UNTIL IT BURNS DOWN.
