The following is a list of drinks—both of the alcoholic and non-alcoholic variety—that can be found in fictional media. Some of them exist in the real world as well, in one form or another.
In no particular order …
Duff Beer — Homer Simpson’s favorite beer, brewed in Springfield and served at Moe’s Tavern.
Nuka-Cola — This is a soda featured in the Fallout video game series. You can guess which real-life counterpart it was based upon.
Nozz-A-La — Ditto. This one was namedropped many times in Stephen King’s Dark Tower fantasy series. Probably in other King books as well.
Victory Gin — This was the cheap alcohol provided by the government in George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. It was described as having a sickly, oily smell and a taste like nitric acid. Yum.
Vitameatavegamin — Lucy Ricardo attempted to sell this health tonic on I Love Lucy. As she grew increasingly tipsy after swallowing spoonful after spoonful, it was apparent that the tonic contained alcohol as well.
Bantha Milk — This was the “blue milk” first seen in Star Wars: A New Hope. There’s Luke having a healthy glass.
Romulan Ale — Also blue, but not so healthy. This alcoholic beverage was illegal in the 23rd century, but made appearances across all of the Trek series.
Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster — Keeping with the science-fiction theme, this alcoholic drink, featured in Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, was invented by ex-President of the Galaxy Zaphod Beeblebrox. The hilarious novel even includes a recipe for the concoction, which includes many impossible to obtain ingredients and instructions to “Drink … but…very carefully…”
Mead — Mead existed as a real beverage first. It’s fermented honey and water, sometimes with other ingredients such as fruit or herbs. In fiction, it is a staple in works of heroic fantasy, such as found in Tolkien, George R.R. Martin, or Dungeons & Dragons games. I’ve never had mead, but if I ever do, I would like to drink it from a Viking horn in a rustic tavern.
Earl Grey Tea — Also not fictional, but earns an honorable mention because it was the favorite beverage of Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Jean-Luc Picard. Still is, on his new series. I’ve often wondered if the sales of Earl Grey peaked after TNG began. I’m almost certain they did.
This 10-List was condensed from a much larger list that I generated. If I left out any of your favorites, please add them in the comments.
