One of the most fun ways to make our favorite books and movies come alive at home is to create crafts and recipes that replicate things the characters themselves do, play, eat and drink. In The BFG, Sophie befriends the big, friendly giant, and learns of his favorite drink, Frobscottle.
Frobscottle is a special drink unique to giants. It’s a carbonated soft drink where the bubbles float downwards rather than upwards! You can create your own green and fizzy drink (we can’t guarantee the direction of the bubbles!) with this fun The BFG Frobscottle recipe that highlights each of the noted flavors. It’s not only fun to make a recipe straight out of the book, but it’s delicious too!
You can serve your homemade Frobscottle in a regular glass, but for something a little more special and “giant-y” you can serve and store your Frobscottle in a clear glass bottle with a stopper held by a wire bail. Just be sure to store your Frobscottle in the refrigerator until you’re ready to drink it. It’s best served within a day. (It might last longer, but we haven’t tried it!)
Let’s get on to the recipe!
