I know the cantrip Shocking Grasp removes an enemy's ability to use its Reaction if you hit:

... On a hit, the target takes 1d8 lightning damage, and it can't take reactions until the start of its next turn.

I am not very familiar with the spells available but am theory-crafting a caster. Assuming you can take from any class spell list, what other spell options are there if I am looking to take away an enemy's reaction?

Ripping off the first section of this CW answer:

Make the enemy unable to use reactions

Force the enemy to use its reaction

    \$\begingroup\$ @Shadur That is only links reference non-open content you need a subscription for (for example from Tasha's Cauldron of Everything or Arms of Hadar, which is not open). The other links still work without it. \$\endgroup\$ Mar 24, 2022 at 6:32
