1. Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster.

What else could I possibly have first on the list? This drink is considered to be the “best drink in existence” by the Guide with effects that feel like having your brains smashed in by a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick. I don’t know about you, but I certainly have days where I could use that exact feeling.

2. Buzz Beer. 

The Drew Carey Show has a special home in the nostalgic parts of my heart. Buzz Beer was a alcoholic beverage consisting of beer and coffee that Drew and his friends brewed right out of his garage. I always thought it would be something interesting to try in real life.

3. Sploosh.

Growing up my mom used to read me Louis Sachars books, such as Sideways Stories from Wayside School. Holes was the first one I read myself. In Holes, Zero hides out with nothing to sustain but jars of fermented peaches. Not knowing what he was eating he named the drinkable concoction “Sploosh”. This plays a humorous key role in the end of the story.

4. “Drink Me”.

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Disney. Alice in Wonderland is no exception. Before Alice can go through the door to wonderland she has to eat and drink her way to the appropriate size. This scene is so memorable!

5. Butterbeer.

This list wouldn’t be complete without Butterbeer. As fun as it was to read about in the Harry Potter books. This drink has become universally known (Pun Intended). People look forward to trying it in the real world now as well!

Honorable Mention: Lefou’s Brew.

Although not as well known, Lefou’s Brew is another drink you can try in the real world. If you ever go to Disney World be sure to stop by Gaston’s Tavern in New Fantasyland to give it a try. I can’t wait to try it when I go to Disney next year!

fg3fuazbmxb2wHarry Potter

I know, I know, blasphemy right? Just hear me out. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s/Sorcerer’s Stone was released in the united states in 1998 and our school stocked it in the Library a year later. I was nine years old. All the kids in my elementary school were reading it and we even banded together as a school to make J.K. Rowling a giant card that was signed by the entire student body thanking her for her the fantastic read! I had just finished reading “Go Ask Alice” and ignorantly thought that Harry Potter was going to be for “less mature” kids. My friend lent me a copy and I couldn’t put it down. In fact, I picked up Chamber of Secrets after that and subsequently attended the midnight releases of the rest of the series. I apologize for underestimating how entertaining Harry Potter was and have learned real life lessons from the books and movies. Continue reading Five Fandom Friday – Fandoms You Almost Didn’t Love
