As my roommate and I themed our apartment after the Harry Potter world, we looked through the books for food and drink ideas. This particular name of a drink is a favorite of the Minister of Magic Cornelius Fudge. I made it with my black currant jam from earlier. I know, not exactly a “red” currant drink, but it turns a pretty color nonetheless. It would make a very good holiday drink with its flavors!
