Draconic Drinks and Spirits

Lots of people love booze. Lots of people also make booze. Theres many items that we have on FR that your dragons could use to brew up something you can mix and match with other drinks. Taverns have to get their booze from somewhere so this here is a list of items we have currently (as of August 30th 2017) that could be used to create a nice brew, which unlike Baldwin, should give your dragons exactly what they want. I’m no expert on this stuff so most of this is comparing fr items to real world alcohol ingredients and a little bit of imagination. (if you’re skeptical about the gulls, feel free to look up ‘seagull wine’)

Treasure Plant: Liqueur. golden brown liquid gives drinker a happy feeling.

Crimson Rootvine: basically a potato beer or vodka that has a red tint

Lace Lantana: Fruit of plant used for wine. popular in daiquiris. flowers used to garnish.

Royal Lantana: Same as lace lantana. reserved for use for kings and queens and other nobility. growers and brewers are hand picked by the nobility themselves. This is considered a great honor.

Tradewinds Gull and Murkbottom Gull: Iceflight is horrid. Instructions are simple, put a gull in a bottle of water and let it ferment. very few dragons aquire a taste for it and is generally homebrewed. Generally considered inhumane

Potash Peach: a favourite for wines in fire flight. known for its sweet taste and firey afterkick.

Charged Duneberry: Not for the faint of heart. Lightning is famous for its Duneberry Liqueur which is cyan in colour and gives off a slight glow.

Seaberry: Used for wine in the sea of a thousand currents. Its creation is a well kept secret by many water flight clans. Most barrels are made of palm trees. One particular clan uses driftwood for the barrels. how its kept in there is another secret entirely.

Winter’s Delight: Ice Flight is known for its ice and dessert wines. Winter’s delight ice wine is said to be the finest, generally reserved for the well off and wealthy. adored by courtesans and royalty alike.

Tundra cactus: One of Ice flight’s sources of vodka.

Blackberry: Shadowflight makes a wine from blackberries, combining it with brandy and diced fruit makes for a lovely sangria.

Crisp Leaf Amaranth: Arcane, Plague, and Water clans all have varying methods of Brewing Ale from this plant.

Sandhills Amaranth: Nature uses the seeds and stems for their brew, Shadow uses the leaves and stems for theirs. Both have a different taste depending on what else the beer is brewed with.

Amaranth: Earth is the only one to brew beer from this form of the plant. Ice and Lightning prefer to consume it as grain.

Red Delicious Apple: Nature flight loves a good sweet apple cider.

Sour green Apple: Windflight is usually known for sweeter spirits, which is why its such a surprise to have such a sour liquer. Its popular to give newly adult dragons this, tricking them into believing its a sweet drink.

Honeycrisp: Iceflight uses this to make a rather strong applejack. Other clans use it for a nice cider.

Granny Smith Apple: Light Flight makes a lovely dessert wine from these apples. It has a golden colour to it and is an excellent gift to roll into any social gathering tagged “to the fairest.”

Green Plantain: Wind uses these to make a beer that is strangely served warm. Its opaque, dense, and generally made in large quantities.

Plantain: Used with Red bananas and combined with maize flower to make a beer. Its generally considered a summer beverage.

Herbal Plantain: Used moreso in herbal teas, the leaves of this plant are used to add ‘health benefits’ to the banana beers. Its yet to be proven if they actually do anything.

Broadleaf Plantain: Due to its hardy nature, beginner homebrewers tend to experiment with this plant in anything from liqueurs to gin. Some results are better than others.

Greater Plantain: Due to its great taste, its used rather in flavouring rather than in the creation of its own drink.

Sugary Prickleaf: This plant can be used as an alternative to sugarcane for making molasses. and molasses means you can make rum! Pirate dragons rejoice!

Gradish: its roots have the perfect sugars to be made into a rum like drink, vodka or even spirits with enough alcohol in them that it could kill you! endless possibilities!

Acorn: Not a common thought for a drink, but shadow and nature make a good liquor from these tiny things.

Blood Acorn: Lairs on the borders between shadow and plague make a liquer from these acorns. It has a slight red tinge to it.

Stonecorn: It takes a skilled eye to tell the difference between a pebble and a stonecorn. However it takes an even more skilled hand to brew these suckers into a fine liquer. Its said to go down really smooth if made right.

Sunkernel: It takes large quantities of these to actually make a batch of liquer. Its more golden in colour.

Hainu’s Eye: These and woodland acorns are soaked in gin or brandy to produce a flavour many nature and plant eating dragons enjoys.

Fire Flower: Not used to create its own beverage but is mixed in with cinnamon and grassland grains for Dreadram fire whiskey. generally served with a spade tail in or wrapped around the glass.

Honeycomb fragment: The honey is used in meads in every flight. Its also used to make vodkas or a strong spirit named Horilka.

Miniature Potash Peach: Used in similar ways as a full grown potash peach, Though the result is usually as sour as the mini fruit itself.

Stonewatch Flatblade: apart of the Aguave family, The Harpies of the roost have been known to create tiquila with it.

stonewatch scrub: Same use as the flatblade, though this is the more common plant to be cultivated for such a use.

Cinnamon: not used to make its own drink, however it is used to flavour things. The result is generally spicy.

Strawberry: Most commonly used in nature and wind to make liquers or wine. 


Engineered Superberry: The berry of choice for lightning flight berry related wines. the result is always blue.

Sour Strawberry: Used to make… sour berry liquers and spirits. what a surprise.


Maiden’s blush: mix with caution due to the slight toxicity. Its incredibly challenging to create a spirit out of this flower so the result is generally very rare and affordable to only the rich and thrill seeking boozewyms.

Hallowed Ivy: Often mixed with Treasure Plant to enhance the positive spirits given with this spirit.

Watermelon: Waterflight has ingeniously figured out a way to make a fine brandy with these melons.

Sugarmelon: Though its more commonly used for flavourings to infuse liqueurs with, there is a variant of the melon brandy using this melon.

Lume Daffodil: can sometimes be used in combination with peppermint to make creme de menthe.

Strangler seeds: though a nuisance to put in someone elses garden, these seed could be put to much better use in a liqueuer. generally a brandy liqueuer similar in taste to a mire chesnut brandy liqueuer, but much cheaper.

Blooming pods: Similar usage to strangler seeds, however the taste has more bite to it.

Luminous almonds: Used to make a sweet amaretto thats popular in light flight.

High-Voltage Almonds: the amaretto made with these almonds has quite the kick to it. Non lightning dragons consuming this beware.

Irridated Pear, Wasteland Pear, Prickly pear: All used to make vodka. No change in taste depending on where it originates.

Blue Honeycomb: Same usage as a normal honeycomb but due to the challenging nature of brewing anything from this quickly solidifying honey, its generally considered a drink for those of high status and or wealth. Breweries will reuse off batches honey for hard candies. Not for hatchlings.

Spearmint: used for mint schnapps. Peppermint is generally considered better.

Peppermint: Used in Peppermint Schnapps and Creme de menthe. Generally the most popular drink made from this is putting the schnappes or creme de menthe into a nice cup of hot cocoa.

Cindermint: Used in its own Cindermint Schnapps and Creme de Cindermenthe. Also used in other 'spicy’ drinks to add a little extra kick. A favourite of Fire flight.

Golden Pepper,Blacktongue Pepper: a lair in fire flight uses them to create a vodka so spicy they claim its the hottest drink in all of Sornieth. Their advertising even suggests not to buy it.

Butcher’s Fig: Used in a Fig spirit. has a red tinge to it. still stains the maw red if enough is consumed.

Fig: Used in fig liqueuers.

Sunbeam Fig: used in spirits and liqueuers. Almost entirely cultivated in light flight. due to the challenge of obtaining the fruit its considered rare and expensive. a favourite among Light flight royalty.

Patio Rose, Heart Rose, Blue Rose, Pale Pink Rose: All used for rose water that some dragons think is a good idea to mix with alcohol. It probably just waters it down.


Now go forth and have those drunkard dragons and brewers get creative!

Diet | Tony Stark x Chubby!Reader

Request for @secretlittledelights​ hope this is okay!

“Hey, babe” Tony wrapped his arms around his soft and squishy fiancee. Tony had been in his lab all day building and improving his Iron Suits, he only stopped when his stomach seemed to call him from his work. “You want to go out and grab something to eat?” He pressed a soft kiss to her neck. It had been a while since he left his lab. (Y/n) chalked it up to stress of losing his friends. It made her happy that he wanted to go out. 

“Of course.” She agreed. Gently, he kissed his loving fiancee’s lips. She held him for a moment, maybe he was healing emotionally? (Y/n) brushed a bit of hair off of Tony’s face. 

“Cheeseburgers sound good. Something… horrible preferably.” He teased. He kissed her again. Her face flashed a bit of surprise. She hadn’t spoken to him about it but (Y/n) had been trying to lose a few pounds and cheese burgers were off the diet, to say the least. Maybe she could get a salad? It wasn’t something she wanted to bring up however, knowing Tony was going through something himself… she didn’t want him to worry. 

“Baby, you..okay?” Tony asked, once they made it to the rinky-dink hole in the wall bar. “You seem quiet. Usually you try and convince me to talk about how I’m feeling rather than drinking them away” He swallowed some whiskey, placing his free hand on her thigh. 

“I’m fine” She assured. “I think it’d be okay for you to drink tonight… just not a whole bottle” Tony rolled his eyes at her. “I can hold my liquer fine, if that’s what you are implying.” His eyes skimmed the different burgers on the menu. “Please, Tony you aren’t a spring chicken.” She teased. (Y/n) focused on the salads and calculated the calorie and fat intake silently. 

“Bacon cheeseburger” He told the waitress, a mild glare on his face, ready to tear into her on the chicken reference. 

“Just the small salad” She orders. 

“Wait… salad?” Tony’s joke was instantly gone. “You normally get (Fav burger?). Especially from here.” Tony was not an idiot… okay sometimes he is. “Are you dieting?”

“I’m fine Tony” She responds. “I just want to lose a little on my thighs. And my tummy” His face contorts into a look of concern. “Come on. You have to be kidding?” 

“My problems  aren’t important right now. I’m worried about you.” (Y/n) tried to turn it back to Tony. 

“My problems don’t make your’s less important” he said softly. His hand gripped her leg, before moving to take her hand. “You look good. You are beautiful… and healthy.” He pointed out. He leaned forward and kissed (Y/n). “If you want to diet fine.. but just have one cheeseburger with me” 

“…. Fine” She said finally. 

Mars-Bar • Alex Danvers

My giggles were absolutely uncontrollable as I stumble with Kara into her apartment. We’d meet after the DEO started talking to me and had become especially close after I started dating her sister Alex. Honestly for the longest time I was nervous about Kara, she’s my girlfriends sister and best friend so I always had the fear that she might not like me. That is ridiculous because she’s one of the nicest people I know but I couldn’t help but feel anxious and desperately want to bond with Kara. Most of our recent bonding was over the fact that our home planets were close and our alieness, I tried to bond over game night but failed because of my lack of human knowledge.

Flashback to this morning when I found out that Kara had never returned to space to visit any other planets, my own powers allow me to teleport and can go to other planets whenever I want so I insisted she’d let me take her out and show her a good time. And now it is currently 3 a.m. and we just crashed our way into her apartment after falling down the stairs twice and trying to get into the wrong room five times.

I had transported us to the Mars-Bar, a bar that is themed around the human perception of what Martians would look like. The waiters dressed ridiculously and the drinks had assorted punny names like Take Me To Your Liquer and The Roswell Shot. A lot of drinks and jokes later we realize we should probably head back to earth. We apparently didn’t realize this soon enough because as we stumble into the room we see Alex staring at us sternly.

“Where exactly have you two been for the last five hours?” She says as we try and quiet are giggling.

“Aleeeexxxxxx, there was this bar you should totally come sometime….” Kara slurs while making her way to her couch and laying down,

“Dude…. the atmosphere would kill her… we cant take her there,” I say going to give Alex a hug but more likely falling into her.

“Atmosphere? You took Kara to space? And got her drunk? What were you thinking, (y/n)?” Alex says basically holding you up.

“She’s never been to space since she was tiny, Alex… Its important to me that we bond… I want your sister to like me because I like you… its just important… we gotta bond… so I took her out for a few drinks… we were just having fun… you seem disappointed… Im sorry…” I say cuddling into her.

Alex sighed, exasperated, “Just tell me next time you two go MIA to bond on a different planet,” I nodded as she started walking me towards the door.

“You just need to be careful, I worry about you two,” She continues. I nod again noticing that Kara had fallen asleep on her couch as Alex walked me out of the apartment room.

“You know she already loves you right, you dont need to take her to another planet to get her to like you,” She says laughing a bit while walking you down the stairs.

“God I love you, (y/n),” she said as she walked you down the street towards her apartment to go to bed.

Coffee Cocktails
