The Love Potion is best served chilled, so we recommend ensuring that your ingredients, particularly the vanilla ice cream and strawberry Fanta soda, are cold before assembling the drink. You can also chill the glasses in the refrigerator or freezer beforehand to keep the Love Potion refreshingly cool from start to finish.

As you raise your glass to toast to love, we hope that the Love Potion reminds you of the magic and romance that surrounds us each and every day. May your Valentine's Day be filled with laughter, joy, and, of course, plenty of love potions to go around.
