Essential Seven Fictional Drinks I Want to Try

Film and television often make up fictional drinks to help place a story into the future or another world. These drinks can sometimes be over the top by color or how they are created. The description of the drink can only give you an idea of what they taste like. Since none of these drinks exist we have to just imagine what they taste like. That is why this week I am listing the Essential Seven Fictional Drinks I Want to Try:

7) Slurm

From Futurama
Slurm is the “pop” (soft drink for others) from the show Futurama episode “Fry and the Slurm Factory.” The pop is highly addictive, as they advertise, but the drink is not actually created in a factory. Fry discovers that Slurm is actually a secretion from a giant worm. Because Fry is so addicted to Slurm, he keeps the nature of Slurm a secret.

6) Mudders Milk

From Firefly
The city of Cantons cheap alcoholic beverage contains “All the protein, vitamins and carbs of your grandma’s best turkey dinner, plus 15 percent alcohol.” The drink is all that some of the townspeople can afford and is loved by Jayne. mmmm….. Thanksgiving.

5) Raktajino

From Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
If you think those canned energy drinks are strong, then your a pussy. Klingon coffee Raktajino is far stronger than any Red Bull or Rockstar drink. The caffeine content WILL keep you awake all night. Klingons never do anything small. Hell, they even drink “Blood Wine.” Something I don’t want to try.

4) Butter Beer

From Harry Potter
I love that the students of Harry Potter can “potentially lower their inhibitions” on this questionable alcoholic drink. The book describes the drink as tasting a bit like butterscotch. The movie portrays the drink served in a bottle, like beer, at a bar. Neither confirm that the drink is alcoholic, but there is enough references that the drink has some affect on people and house elves.

3) Lord of the Rings Ale

From Lord of the Rings
Out of all the characters from the Lord of the Rings, I identify with the Hobbit the most. Their love of food, pipe weed, and ale is right up my alley. The scene at the “Prancing Pony” makes me crave a good pint of beer. I imagine this beer being amazing, and nothing like Pabst Blue Ribbon.

2) Romulan Ale

From Star Trek TNG
Romulan Ale is banned in the Federation, much like Cuban cigars are banned here in the States. When you ban something people want it more. From its appearance Romulan Ale is more like a whisky than a beer. The bright blue color adds to my temptation to try it.

1) Aunt Beru’s Blue Milk

From Star Wars
What is it with blue drinks that make is so tempting? On the moisture farm Aunt Beru’s blue milk looked so good. The books reference the blue milk as Bantha Milk. I imagine that the drink is very sweet to go along with Aunt Beru’s awesome cooking.
