Today on the A Pinch of Magick podcast I’m joined by Julia Halina Hadas, Witch, Mixologist and Author.

In our latest episode on the A Pinch of Magick, we’re getting into the spirit (and spirits!) with Julia Halina Hadas, who’s magickal when it comes to blending witchcraft, mixology, and astrology. You’re in for a treat that’s as enchanting as it is enlightening!

Imagine a world where your cocktails are not just drinks but spells in a glass, and that’s where Julia takes us. She’s got stories about how she started mixing up her passions for witchcraft and bartending, turning herbal liqueurs, bitters, and shrubs into potions that heal and energise.

Did you know that mixology has roots in ancient healing practices and witchcraft? Julia dives deep into this, revealing the mystical side of fermentation – it’s all about transformation, much like the magickal process of death and rebirth. And she tells of ancient beer goddesses that will have you looking at your brew in a whole new light!

But it’s not just about listening – Julia’s got some practical magick up her sleeve too!

She walks us through how to whip up our own magickal cocktails, mocktails, teas, and coffees.

And it’s not just about the ingredients; it’s about syncing with the moon’s cycle and the rhythm of the seasons.

You’ll love hearing about her ritual process for crafting these concoctions. And guess what? The glass and garnishes you choose are part of the spell too!

Ever had a drink that didn’t turn out right? Julia shows us how these ‘mistakes’ can become magickal offerings instead.

She even shares her go-to ingredients and tips to become a magickal mixologist yourself.

So, grab your favourite mug or glass, and get ready to be spellbound. This episode is a journey into a world where every sip is a sip of magick!
