Literature has been the playground for authors who’ve wanted to invent some seriously good food and drinks. Famous writers have created and referenced dishes and cocktails in their works of art, giving characters life and an identity. While Enid Blyton was known for mentioning hot, buttered scones, other authors have taken to writing about imaginative drinks. Four drinks inspired by popular books are:

Butterbeer from the Harry Potter series

Although JK Rowling never mentioned the recipe for Butterbeer in the Potter books, the fictional beverage has become very popular since the books were published and people have tried recreating it in real life. Rowling described butterbeer as “a little bit like less-sickly butterscotch”. According to the books, wizards mostly drank butterbeer at bars like The Three Broomsticks Inn and the Hog’s Head Inn in the fictional village of Hogsmeade. The drink is supposed to have a low alcohol content and could be served hot or cold.
