- Pinch black pepper

Warm all spell ingredients, except coffee and coconut oil, in a small cauldron on the stovetop until simmering. Meanwhile make your witches brew; coffee or espresso are both wicked!
Pour liquids into a blender and mix for 30 seconds. Careful blending hot potions lest they burn you! And don’t toil or trouble if you are without a blender, just whisk in your coffee until it gets frothee.
