Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Alice Liddell found a couple of bottles of potion in Wonderland, with a label marked "Drink Me" tied around their necks. She first found one in a hallway of doors, and drank from it to help her get through a tiny door leading to the Queen of Hearts's garden.
She found the second bottle in the White Rabbit's house, but this time, she grew instead of shrunk.
American McGee's Alice
Alice needed to create a Drink Me potion in order to become small enough to follow the Rabbit into the Vale of Tears. In the Fortress of Doors, she first searched for the recipe in the Book of Bizarre Things and then collected the sweet ingredients – mushrooms, poppies, sugar and spice. With the help of Mayor Elder, they used a condenser to make the potion give its shrinking properties. After drinking it and shrinking, Alice was able to go on with her journey.
Alice: Madness Returns
Soon after Alice returned to Wonderland via the Vale of Tears, she took a quick bathe in small lake of the potion. At first, Alice was anxious to reach such small sizes, but the Cheshire Cat reassured her that she can shrink to see things that were nearly invisible to her in her human size.
- As revealed in Wilson's casebook, Alice would repeatedly whisper "drink me" during her treatment.
- It is the opposite to the Eat Me cake, a pastry that makes people grow in size.
- Throughout Alice: Madness Returns, Alice can shrink at will in order to see hidden paths and fit through keyholes, but she will always return to her normal size. The plunge in the pool of Drink Me potion had a different effect on her body compared to the previous game.
