“May I offer you all an infusion of Gurdyroots? ...We make it ourselves. ...Do sit down and help yourselves to sugar."
-- Xenophilius Lovegood (DH20)
A deep purple drink enjoyed by the Lovegood family (and not many other people).
- Xenophilius Lovegood offered this homemade drink to Harry, Ron, and Hermione (DH20).
- He stirred several sugar cubes into his cup, although whether this helped the taste is uncertain (DH21).
- To Harry, the concoction tasted like "liquidized bogey-flavored Every Flavor Beans" (DH21), although Hermione said later it was better than essence of Bellatrix Lestrange in the Polyjuice Potion (DH26).
Luna Lovegood once gave Ron Weasley a gurdyroot after he had been poisoned. It resembled a green onion, and would supposedly protect him from Gulping Plimpies (HBP20).
"infuse" early 15c., "to pour in, introduce, soak," from Latin infusus
