Okay, I'm writing a Star Wars fan fic, and I decided to use Ruby Bliels in it (Ruby Bliels being the drink offered to Kyle in the Nar Shaadda bar by the Chiss bartender with a speech impediment)... does anyone know if Ruby Bliels is a mixed drink, or if it's straight liquor? And if so, what kind? Has this ever been answered in the EU, or am I free to make it whatever I want?

Ok... here's what I found

I can assume the "s" on the end of "ruby bliels" is due to Chiss' broken english

"A ruby bliel is a gooey drink sold at stalls in Mos Espa on Tatooine. Anakin skywalker and his friend Kitster enjoyed drinking ruby bliels" Source (http://www.geocities.com/starwarsliving/DexsDiner.html)

"Ruby Bliel - This non-alcoholic drink is a favorite of young children" Source (http://www.geocities.com/ssdnemesis/database/menu.html#nonalcoholic)

"Leia sipped the ruby bliel thoughtfully. It was too sweet, but she had a lingering childhood fondness for the flavor. She supposed it would disappear in time" Source (http://www.fanfix.com/stories/between/fheart04.htm)

So... the best conclusion I can come to is that it's probably NOT a mixed drink, mainly because it's a favourite of the children. I'm venture to say that it's probably like Pepsi, only thicker, and more rich.

And I say that as I sit here and toughtfully sip my Ruby Bliel :D

but, if it is YOUR OWN STORY, why not make your own variation to the ruby bliel? like, add some alcohol to it, and give it a sligtly different name, like.....um......

Hard Ruby Bliel! :lol:
