I’ve seen a lot of literature-themed cocktails out there (some even featured here on Daily Mayo), but I see less book-themed mocktails. Today, I’ve decided to fill that void. For your reading pleasure, here are 10 non-alcoholic book-themed drinks.

10 Book-Themed Mocktails from Your Favorite Books
These book-themed mocktails are all inspired by some of my favorite books. The Ebola Cola? It’s just there because the name makes me laugh.
Mary Poppins Strawberry Ice
“Is that your medicine?” asked Michael. “No, it’s yours,” said Mary Poppins. “I don’t want it! I won’t!” But suddenly Michael understood that he could not say “no” to her. He closed his eyes and opened his mouth. “Strawberry ice,” he said.”
Hunger Games Nightlock Berry Juice
“I spread out my fingers, and the dark berries glisten in the sun. I give Peeta’s hand one last squeeze as a signal, as a good-bye, and we begin counting. “One.” Maybe I’m wrong. “Two.” Maybe they don’t care if we both die. “Three!” It’s too late to change my mind. I lift my hand to m mouth, taking one last look at the world. The berries have just passed my lips when the trumpets begin to blare.”
Alice in Wonderland Drink Me Potion
“There seemed to be no use in waiting by the little door, so she went back to the table, half hoping she might find another key on it, or at any rate a book of rules for shutting people up like telescopes: this time she found a little bottle on it, (`which certainly was not here before,’ said Alice,) and round the neck of the bottle was a paper label, with the words `DRINK ME’ beautifully printed on it in large letters.”
Harry Potter Polyjuice Potion
“Ooh, you look much tastier than Crabbe and Goyle, Harry” said Hermione, before catching sight of Ron’s raised eyebrows, blushing slightly and saying “oh you know what I mean – Goyle’s Potion looked like bogies.”
To Kill a Mockingbird Lemonade
” Calpurnia appeared at the front door and yelled, “Lemonade time! You all get in outa that hot sun ‘fore you fry alive!” Lemonade in the middle of the morning was a summertime ritual.”
The Great Gatsby Mint Juleps
“Open the whiskey, Tom,” she ordered, “and I’ll make you a mint julep. Then you won’t seem so stupid to yourself.”
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster
“Take the juice from one bottle of that Ol’ Janx Spirit.
Pour into it one measure of water from the seas of Santraginus V
Allow three cubes of Arcturan Mega-gin to melt into the mixture (it must be properly iced or the benzene is lost).
Allow four litres of Fallian marsh gas to bubble through it (in memory of all those happy Hikers who have died of pleasure in the Marshes of Fallia).
Over the back of a silver spoon float a measure of Qualactin Hypermint extract, redolent of all the heady odours of the dark Qualactin Zones.
Drop in the tooth of an Algolian Suntiger. Watch it dissolve, spreading the fires of the Algolian suns deep into the heart of the drink.
Add an olive.
Drink…but very carefully.”
This person took a lot of time to analyze what might go into the drink on earth. An entertaining read.
Harriet the Spy Egg Creme
“On the way there she got thirsty and stopped in her favorite luncheonette for an egg creme. It was her favorite because it was there that she had first begun to hear what peculiar things people say to each other. She liked to sit at the counter with her egg creme and let the voices from the tables behind her float over her head.”
Discworld Nanny Ogg’s Scumble
‘Why, lordship, we drink scumble, for preference.'”
Anne of Green Gables Raspberry Cordial
“Diana poured herself out a tumblerful, looked at its bright-red hue admiringly, and then sipped it daintily.
“That’s awfully nice raspberry cordial, Anne,” she said. “I didn’t know raspberry cordial was so nice.””
Tansmetropolitan Ebola Cola
“The Hemorrhage that Refreshes.”
