-->[Fairy wine] was a stolen recipe, taken back when fairies once dominated the forests. Most witches and wizards only used it for incredibly special occasions. One glass was heaven, two were ecstasy, and three...well most people never got to three.

Consumption often results in a FireBreathingDiner, IntoxicationEnsues, the MushroomSamba, or if you're lucky, quick, merciful unconsciousness. If you're ''UN''lucky, all of the above. Except unconsciousness, at least until the least opportune moment.

Named after the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster from ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy''; drinking one has been compared to "having your brains smashed out with a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick." You may need a HideousHangoverCure to recover from it. The ScrewballSerum is an explicitly non-alcoholic variant, whose end results may be equally disturbing. Another variant is the BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce, which is served as a condiment, not as a drink. For the opposite, see KlatchianCoffee. May be served with a MasochistsMeal.

Contrast with IDrankWhat, when someone drinks something that's not supposed to be drunk ''at all.'' Compare/Contrast with UnsuspectinglySoused, when someone drinks a GargleBlaster ''without realizing it's alcoholic'' (or knows that it is but has no idea how potent it is), and ATankardOfMooseUrine, when beer is just bad without excessive (or necessarily any) alcohol content.

* Downplayed when ''ComicBook/LuckyLuke'' drinks a Tequila. The only effect is some firespitting.

A common scene involves a character (often a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}) downing an entire Gargle Blaster and suffering ''no'' ill effects, either just shrugging it off as "nothing really special" or maybe even claiming that experience was "quite pleasant", causing everyone else in the room to be thoroughly confused. Someone else tries it, because obviously it must be weaker than it's supposed to be, and ends up with the usual effects.

* One comedic issue of ''ComicBook/{{Thor}}'' featured Thor having an epic drinking contest prior to becoming the wielder of Mjolnir, which culminated in being challenged by ''Mephisto.'' Drinks included [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk the Gamma Slamma]], [[ComicBook/{{Galactus}} the Cosmic Ray]], [[ComicBook/FantasticFour the Ultimate Drunkifier]], and Odin's Beard ([[{{Squick}} literally Odin's beard that had been soaked in ale]]). It ended with a nameless concoction that Loki cursed, which caused Mephisto to explode (Thor didn't actually drink it, he just swished it around his mouth and spat it back out).
