The Legend of Zelda: Heart Potion

The heart potion is a classic part of almost every Legend of Zelda game. This item in its various variations essentially all do the same thing – restore your health/hearts! In celebration of Valentine’s Day, we thought this Heart Potion would be a perfect complement to the holiday. Sangria, which has historically been a drink to help sustain journeyers on their voyages or treks, was the closest comparison to what the “real” Heart Potion may have been. Sangria typically is an alcoholic drink, but for the sake of this recipe, you can substitute any kind of juice for the rose wine and remove the Triple Sec from the recipe. Combined with some custom glass bottles from Michael’s, these drinks are a perfect item to add to a romantic dinner or meal!

Ingredients:

  • 3 peaches
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 blood oranges
  • 1 regular orange
  • 1 cup of raspberries
  • 2 cups of strawberries
  • 2 bottles of ginger ale
  • ½ cup of rosewater
  • 1 bottle of rose wine
  • ¾ cup of triple sec
  • ⅓ cup of sugar

For a NON-alcoholic option, substitute any kind of juice for the rose wine and remove the triple sec.

Wash all fruit thoroughly.
Cut up fruit into small chunks and put into large mixing bowl or spigot jar. In a separate container, mix the rose wine and ginger ale together. Pour onto the fruit. Add in sugar, triple sec, rose water and mix together very well. Let the concoction sit in the fridge for 2 hours or more.

Serve! Delight! It’s a heart potion for your valentine!
