BFG’s Frobscottle Recipe {Kid & Adult recipes}

Happy Friday y’all! Usually on Fridays, Derrick will post a new cocktail recipe. You can find several of his cocktail recipes here.

Not only is this a holiday weekend, but Disney’s new movie, The BFG hits theaters! I’m not going to share the whole movie or synopsis, but you can read our thoughts and takeaways from The BFG here.

The boys read the book and were excited (mostly Zayd’n) to see the movie. Zayd’n came up with the idea of recreating Frobscottle, like in the movie. So after a little research and perusing through several of Roald Dahl’s recipe books (recipes created from his books), we came up with a couple of fresh ways to make Frobscottle.

According to the book (page 64), Sophia asks the BFG for some water. He tells her giants only drink Frobscottle. “Frobscottle is sweet and jumbly!” The book describes Frobscottle as a pale green liquid, with the bubbles traveling to the bottom of the glass. It also has a pale green frothy fizz forming at the bottom. “It was sweet and refreshing. It tastes of vanilla and cream, with just the faintest trace of raspberries on the edge of the flavour.”

And once you have a sweet taste of Frobscottle, then comes the whizzpoppers. “Whizzpoping is a sign of happiness. It is music to our ears!”

So what is a Whizzpopper or Whizzpopping? It’s a burp that comes out the other end ( a fart), with an enormous green explosion. Yeah, the kids will love that one. Unfortunately, our Frobscottle recipe will not recreate whizzpopping. But if you have kids, especially boys, their imagination will do the rest!

Each one is pretty different. So try them all and come back and let us know what you think. And of course, we had to add one just for the adults.

Another one to get this color green is to buy green apple soda found at your local grocery store. If you decide to go this route, just mix the green apple soda with the raspberry simple syrup, vanilla extract, and pop rocks. You may have to drop a little of the green kool-aid mix or food coloring to get the right color green.
