* In ''Literature/PhoenixRising'', Kyri is captured by an enemy this way. Played with; she's cautious enough to only pretend to drink from the glass, but it turns out the knock-out stuff isn't the drink, it's magically incorporated into the glass itself.

often drugged B.A.'s milk so they wouldn't have to deal with his fear of flying.
** In "[[Recap/TheATeamS2E21DeadlyManuevers Deadly Manuevers]]", one of the villains delivers milk to the A-Team. However, the milk is spiked with "a powerful sedative" that is meant to incapacitate them. (However, from the pain it causes the afflicted Hannibal and B.A., it seems more like poison than sedative.)

* In most if not all versions of the fairytale "Literature/TheTwelveDancingPrincesses", the princesses prevent anyone from learning the secret of how their dancing shoes are worn out every night by giving their assigned watchers a drugged drink; the hero must perform a DiscreetDrinkDisposal in order to stay awake and solve the mystery. RobinMcKinley's version of the story hangs a lampshade on the fact that nobody previous to the hero thought to do this but simply drank what they were given.
