Effects Makes the drinker smaller

The 'Drink Me' potion is a magic liquid in Wonderland that has an unusual effect to make the drinker shrink in size.

When Alice finds that she can't fit through the little door to get into the beautiful garden because she is too big, she noticed that a glass bottle with a paper label that says "DRINK ME" tied around it has magically appeared on the table. Alice wonders if it is safe to drink or not, as she thinks to herself, "If one drinks much from a bottle marked "Poison", it is certain to disagree with one, sooner or later." However, the bottle did not have the word 'poison' written on it, so Alice drinks every last drop of the bottle's liquid and finds that it tastes absolutely delicious (it had a flavor of cherry tart, custard, pineapple, roast turkey, toffy, and hot buttered toast, all mixed up). She then finds herself shrinking down to only ten inches high after drinking from the bottle.

How it tastes and what it's made of?Edit

The taste of the potion in the book is described as cherry tart, custard, pineapple, roast turkey, toffee, and hot buttered toast. In the video game American McGee's Alice, you earn the ingredients to make this potion as read by Alice from a book in the great library: "Mushrooms, poppies, sugar and spice: all these things are very nice; but when combined, the proper mixture makes a getting small elixir." In the new Tim Burton's film the potion is called "Pishsalver." It tastes revolting, and as the White Queen reiterates, is made of "a pinch of worm fat, urine of the horsefly, buttered fingers, three coins from a dead man's pocket, two teaspoons of wishful thinking" and a healthy glob of her own saliva.
