Razzy Rasberry Frobscottle Drink for Kids Inspired by The BFG

frobscottle-drink-recipe-for-kids

Today we have a fun drink recipe for kids inspired by The BFG! You know how much we love making snacks and drinks inspired by movies, right? Usually, we look to the characters themselves for inspiration. We ask “what would they eat?” and come up with snacks like these Zootopia-inspired paw-sicles made with blueberries. Sometimes we draw from the colors of the characters, like with our Dory-Inspired ice-cream recipe!

With The BFG, though, the inspiration was right in the pages of the book! In Roald Dahl’s classic story, Sophie asks if there is water in Giant Country. Instead of water, she’s served Frobscottle, a traditional giant beverage that causes the Whizzpops! I’ll let your imagination figure out what those are! The internet has many, many interpretations on the Frobscottle. Most of them contain ice-cream. We wanted to make something a little lighter and fizzier. After all, it’s the fizz that causes the Whizzpops, right? Let’s check out how to make this fun drink recipe for kids!

The BFG Drink Recipe for Kids (Inspired by the Frobscottle)

Ingredients for the drink

frobscottle-drink-recipe-for-kids

  • Ice cubes
  • 1 can club soda
  • 1 drop vanilla extract
  • 6 drops green food coloring
  • 3 or 4 raspberries

You’ll also need either two cups. One for mixing and infusing, and one clear plastic cup or mason jar for the final product. You can mix everything in one cup, but I find that it’s easier to do it this way.

Supplies for the cup:

  • Clear plastic cup or (affiliate link) mason jar
  • Heavy white cardstock paper (or light cardboard)
  • Scissors
  • Marker

Directions for the drink

frobscottle-drink-recipe-for-kids

  • Fill one large plastic cup 3/4 of the way with the club soda
  • Add the vanilla extract and the food coloring
  • Add the raspberries and set aside while you make the ears. This will give the raspberry flavor a chance to infuse into the club soda.
  • Prepare the BFG cup (see below)
  • Add a few ice cubes and serve!

Making the BFG cup

Draw two ears on your cardstock paper. You can either freehand them if you’re good at drawing, or you can use a template, like this one.

Add details to the ears with your marker, then carefully cut them out, leaving a bit of a tab (see picture).

Tape the ears to your cup!

Carefully transfer the drink into your finished cup. Remember, club soda fizzes like mad!

Enjoy!

  • Ice cubes
  • 1 can club soda
  • 1 drop vanilla extract
  • 6 drops green food coloring
  • 3 or 4 raspberries
  1. Fill one large plastic cup 3/4 of the way with the club soda
  2. Add the vanilla extract and the food coloring
  3. Add the raspberries and set aside while you make the ears. This will give the raspberry flavor a chance to infuse into the club soda.
  4. Prepare the BFG cup
  5. Add a few ice cubes and serve!

You can also make a large batch of this in a big punch bowl for a party! Just multiply the recipe by your number of guests. For example, if you have eight kids coming, use 8 cans of club soda, about 25 raspberries (I like to round up) and maybe 6-8 drops of vanilla extract. A little goes a long way with that. If the vanilla flavor isn’t strong enough, you can always add more. Same with the food coloring, just add it drop by drop until you reach your desired color. Make it about half an hour before the party; that should be long enough to let the raspberry flavor seep in without the soda going totally flat.
