Continuing the “What Would the Witches Do?” series! Next up, Gillian Owens, everybody’s favorite wild child of Practical Magic. In her honor, I present you with two simple spells, for when you just want a little magick to brighten your day:
Floral Citrus-ade for Sisterly Love and Friendship
1 cup lemon juice
½ cup orange juice
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
Organic yellow rose petals
Steep rose petals in enough distilled water to just cover them in a saucepan. Stir lemon juice, orange juice, sugar and 1 cup water in a pitcher. Mix in two tablespoons of the rosewater and ice.
Share a glass of this refreshing beverage with a sister or close friend!
Sweet Syrup for Banishing Negativity
2 cups maple syrup
¼ cup fresh cranberries
1 teaspoon ground cloves
Muddle cranberries with syrup to release their flavor. Stir in ground cloves. Serve over pancakes or waffles.
