The Love Potion Number Nine
9 ounces or drops of Sweet Red Wine or Cherry Soda
This enchanted love potion is a real love potion, and it's supposed to be very potent and mostly irreversible. Use it with a full caution.

Cover it and refrigerate it until you are ready to serve it to the man or the woman from whom you desire love and affection. (Do not allow anyone other than your beloved sweetheart to look at, touch, or drink the love potion.) The nine goddesses: Venus, Ishtar, Astarte, Nephthys, Hathor, Aphrodite, Freya, Arianrhod, and Inanna.
