Gillywater. It’s a drink in the wizarding world, but what is it? At the Harry Potter theme park, it’s just water. McGonagall orders some from Madame Rosmerta in the Three Broomsticks. She’s orders a small, so it seems like it’s probably more than just water. It’s probably not alcoholic. Does it have Gillyweed in it? Just a hint to get for the taste, but not give you gills and webbed toes? 

I’m going to assume it’s a refreshing beverage with some green plant matter in it.  

So, here it is! Fizzy water with cucumber and lime slices and mint leaves. Super refreshing and a good drink to serve at a Potter Party along side all the sweets. 

Some super rad person out there made these labels for wizarding (and witching!) world beverages that you can print out and put on water or soda bottles. Or you can make your own label for a Pellegrino bottle like I did.

  1. What a fun theme for Vegan MoFo! I will definitely be stopping by again to see what else you have come up with. I might just have to pull out my Harry Potter books and reread them!

    1. I can’t remember the number of times I’ve used that very model reader! And the Silent 700 too — God, that was THEEEEE thing, acoustic coupler & all. Talk about UP-Town! And Lisa, you’re more patient than I am. Anything over 1 second latency is way too much for me. :/

  2. I’m so glad this blog is back for MoFo. 🙂 I think I’d be disappointed if I ordered a gillywater and it turned out just to be water – your version looks lovely and refreshing!

  3. I’m going to throw in that Gillyflowers here in England are pinks, like tiny carnations, that have a lovely cinnamon smell and are totally edible. Seems like they’d go well with that beautiful fresh combo you have created.
