    In the "Snape's Wit-Dulling Potion" I developed, my recipe is:

    Mug full of ice
    6 oz ginger beer
    3 oz pineapple juice
    1.5 oz vodka
    Wedge of lime

    The Snape's Wit-Sharpening Potion (Yes, Wit-Sharpening Potion is a real potion in the Harry Potter universe), just remove the vodka. It makes a great and refreshing virgin cocktail that I make often at home.

    I have also added a mint leaf to it muddled it a little and it got great reviews.
