Drinks

Titans Castle

We must thus see to it that we are marvels to them, that we serve them with eagerness and perfections. This is not a matter, incidentally, of serving regardless of our will and possible desires, or in spite of them, but of actually adjusting our will and desires, in such a way that they now find expression and fulfillment even in such service.   ---Dancer of Gor, Page 312

   

ALE:

Gorean Ale is brewed by the grains of Gor and the hops brought from earth in the early aquisition voyages. It is closer to a honey lager than that of an earth ale or beer, it is deep gold in color.

 

Serving:  It is stored in kegs or casks in the back of the kitchen. It can be served in a tankard, stein, or horn, depending on the Master. Since it is stored in kegs or casks, you will fill the drink in the kitchen.

 

The Forkbeard himself now, from a wooden keg, poured a great tankard of ale, which must have been of the measure of five gallons. Over this he then closed his fist. It was the sign of the hammer, the sign of Thor. The tankard then, with two great bronze handles, was passed from hands to hands among the rowers. The men threw back their heads and, the liquid spilling down their bodies, drank ale. It was the victory ale.
---Marauders of Gor, p 82

Bazi Tea:

 

Bazi tea made with bazi leaves steeped in hot water and heavily sugared. It is drunk in 3 tiny cups served in rapid succession. 

 

Serving: The items needed to serve bazi tea is as follows; a serving tray, a kettle filled with hot water, a matching (usually) set of three tiny cups, a container of white sugars, a container of yellow sugars, 2 spoons, and the bazi leaves. Once the slave has left the feet of the Free, they should check to make sure there is enough hot water to serve the drink. Once there is water, find the vessels in which you will serve it with. There is much fable on the matching and color of the kettle and cups it is served in. It is best to ask your Master or Mistress which is Their liking. Some say it is a red and black matching set, others say the cups are three different colors, representing something different of each one. You will place the items on the tray then seek the bowls of sugars and the bazi leaves. These items are found in the dry storage area of the kitchen. The white and yellow sugars will be found in bowls while the bazi leaves will be stored in a box. Place these items to the tray and remember to grab two spoons. You will then move to the hearth and fill the kettle halfway, swirling it to warm the kettle. Then dump the water back and refill it with the hot water. Go to the Free Persons feet and finish preparing the drink. You will place three leaves in each cup along with the hot water. The first cup gets a spoonful of white sugars, the second cup gets a spoonful of yellow sugars and the third cup gets a spoonful of both sugars. You will then begin to offer the cups to the Free. It is said online the significance of the first cup is to the early years of harsh battles, the second cup the smooth path of middle age and the third cup is for the wishes of sweet and fond memories of old age. Between each cup, you will wait for the Free Person to drink the cup and hand back to you, in which, you will place it back on the tray and take the next cup in line. It is one of the most involved serves of Gor but one in which you can really bring out your own special touches.

 

 

Tea is extremely important to the nomads. It is served hot and highly sugared. It gives strength then, in virtue of the sugar, and cools them, by making them sweat, as well as stimulating them. It is drunk three small cups at a time, carefully measured.                   ---Tribesmen of Gor, page 38

Beer, Rence:

 

Rence beer is steeped, boiled and fermented from the crushed seeds and whitish pith of the rence plant. It is drunk by the rence growers of the Delta of the Vosk.

 

Serving: It is stored in kegs in the chillery and served in steins. The drink will be poured in the chillery and taken back to the Free Person.

 

At such times there is drinking of rence beer, steeped, boiled and fermented from the crushed seeds and the whitish pith of the plant. ---Raiders of Gor, page 18

 

Blackwine:

 

Blackwine is similar to that of Earth coffee. It is made from the dark, fresh beans growing on the Thentis Mountains, believed to be brought back from the early acquisitions. It can be served in First Slave which means, it is served with white or yellow sugars and bosk cream, or it can be served Second Slave which means, it will be served black. It is usually kept brewing on the hearth in a kettle and served in a mug.

 

Serving: If the Free Person has requested First Slave, she will get the bowls of sugar desired, remember to ask the Free which sugars they prefer before you leave Their feet. You will then go to the chillery and get the freshest of bosk cream and return all items to the tray. If it is Second Slave the Free Person asked for, you will just get the mug desired and place it to the tray. Once all items are on the tray, move back to the hearth and fill the mug halfway with the blackwine, dumping it back in, then refilling it. This is to warm the mug to keep it hotter for the Free Person. Upon returning to Their feet, if Second Slave you will offer the mug to the Free, if First Slave, you will place the alloted amount of sugars and cream to the mug. You will then offer the Free the blackwine.

 

She carried a tray, on which were various spoons and sugars. She knelt, placing her tray on the table. With a tiny spoon, its tip no more that a tenth of a hort in diameter, she placed four measures of white sugar, and six of yellow, in the cup; with two stirring spoons, one for the white sugar, another for the yellow, she stirred the beverage after each measure. She then held the cup to the side of her cheek, testing its temperature; Ibn Saran glanced at her; she, looking at him, timidly kissed the side of the cup and placed it before him.   ---Tribesman of Gor, page 89

Breeding wine:

 

Breeding wine is the counteractive of slave wine, also known as second wine.  It is a sweet beverage extracted from the teslik plant.

 

Serving: It is only served by a Master who wishes to breed His slave.

 

The active ingredient in the breeding wine, or the "second wine," is a derivative of teslik.  ---Blood Brothers of Gor, page 320

 

Cho:

 

Cho is a mixture of hot paga and chocolate with whipped cream added to the top, it can be sprinkled with sugars and cinnamon for flavoring.

 

Serving: The hot paga is stored in a bota hanging by the hearth, the chocolate is stored in dry storage area. Cho can either be served in a footed bowl or a large mug. When you go into the kitchen, you will get the vessel in which the Free Person wishes, a handful of shaved chocolate, whipped cream, stored in the chillery, and a kettle. You will place the items to a tray and move to the hearth where you will put some warmed paga into the kettle and the shaved chocolate and allow it to melt. You will pour the cho at the Free Persons feet, making sure not to forget any garnishings if the Free Person wished them.

 

--No quotes, the girl believes this may be just a drink done online--

Chocolate:

 

Chocolate is made by the beans brought back from the early acquisitions. It is grown in the tropics and bought from Cosian Merchants. It usually served in higher-class establishments.

 

Serving:  It is usally mixed with milk and warmed on the hearth, served in a mug. You will need a hand full of shaved sweet chocolate, a mug, a spoon, a kettle and a tray. Place the items on the tray and move to the chillery to fill the kettle with bosk or verr milk. Moving to the hearth, you will place the chocolate to the milk and warm it over the fires, allowing the chocolate to melt and warm the milk. Take the spoon and stir the warmed chocolate, then move to the Free Persons feet. You will then pour the warmed chocolate to the mug and serve the Free.

 

This is warmed chocolate," I said, pleased. It was very rich and creamy. "Yes, Mistress," said the girl. "It is very good," I said. "Thank you, Mistress," she said. "Is it from Earth?" I asked. "Not directly," she said. "Many things here, of course, ulitmately have an Earth origin. It is not improbable that the beans from which the first cacao trees on this world were grown were brought from Earth." "Do the trees grow near here?" I asked. "No Mistress," she said, "we obtain the beans from which the chocolate is made, from Cosian merchants, who in turn, obtain them in the tropics.  ---Kajira of Gor, page 61

 

Cosian Wine:

 

Cosian wine is a sweet red wine made from imported fruits.

 

Serving:  It is stored in bottles kept in the chillery and served in a goblet. You will go to the kitchen retrieving the goblet and the seald bottle of wine. You will then move back to the Free Person, unseal and uncork the bottle and pour the sweet red wine to the goblet, offering the Free Their drink.

 

She had brought, too, paga, Cosian wine, and water.  ---Rogue of Gor, Pg. 257

 

On Ice:

 

My house, incidentally, like most Gorean houses, had no ice chest. There is little cold storage on Gor. Generally, food is preserved by being dried or salted. Some cold storage, of course, does exist. Ice is cut from ponds in the winter, and then stored in ice houses, under sawdust. One may go to the ice houses for it, or have it delivered in ice wagons. Most Goreans, of course, cannot afford the luxury of ice in the summer.  ---Guardsman of Gor, page 294

 

Fermented Cheese Curds:

 

A Tuchuk drink made with fermented bosk milk curds and is very potent.

 

Serving: It is usally stored in botas, served in a footed bowl. This drink is very rare to find outside of the Wagon Peoples. If asked to serve, the bota would be found at the back of the kitchen and poured at the feet of the Free Person.

 

By one fire I could see a squat Tuchuk, hands on hips, dancing and stamping about by himself, drunk on fermented milk curds, dancing, according to Kamchak, to please the Sky.  ---Nomads of Gor, pg 28

 

Ka-la-na:

 

Ka la na is a sweet strong wine made from the fruit of the Ka-la-na tree. Like wines of earth, the quality of ka-la-na varies from that of a common table wine to premium brands such as the expensive 'Slave Gardens of Anesidemus' and 'Boleto's Nectar', a medium grade wine. Ar is particularly noted for its production of fine ka-la-na. It is reported to have an aphrodisiac effect on females.

 

Serving:  It is stored in flasks or bottles kept in the chillery. It is served either chilled or warmed, in a goblet. If the Free Person wishes it chilled, you will retrieve the goblet, a tray and the bottle or flask of ka-la-na, pouring the ka-la-na at the feet of the Free. If the Free Person wishes it warmed, you will need the above plus a kettle in which you will warm the ka-la-na at the hearth. Leave the ka-la-na in the kettle and pour at the Free Persons feet.

 

After the meal I tasted the drink, which might not be inappropriately be described as an almost uncandescent wine, bright, dry, and powerful. I learned later it was called Ka-la-na.  ---Tarnsman of Gor, page 26

 

 

Kal-da:

 

Kal-da is a hot, almost scalding alcoholic made from distilled ka-la-na wine, mixed with spices and juices of fruits such as tospit and larma. It is considered a peasants drink as it is cheap.

 

Serving: It is stored in botas by the hearth, normally drank in footed bowls. You will pour the drink from the bota at the hearth, keeping the kal-da warmed.

 

Kalda is a hot drink, almost scalding, made of diluted kalana wine, mixed with citrus juices and stinging spices. I did not care much for the mouth warming concoction, but it was popular with some of the lower castes, particularly those whom performed strenuous manual labor. I expected its popularity was due more to its capacity to warm a man and stick to his ribs, and to its cheapness, a poor gradre of Ka-la-na wine being used in its brewing, than to any gustatory excellence. Moreover, where there was Kal-da there should be bread and meat. I thought of the yellow Gorean bread, baked in the shape of round, flat loaves, fresh and hot; My mouth watered for a tabuk steak or, perhaps, if I were lucky, a slice of roast tarsk, the formidable six tusked wild boar of Gor`s temperate forests.  ---Outlaw of Gor, pg 76

 

Liquers:

 

First from the kitchen, bearing her tray, came the voluptuous slave of Aemilianuus. Behind her, too with her tray, came the little dark-haired slave. In a moment both were deferentially serving. The collared softness of the dark-haired girl well set off the the metal of the tray, and the small multicolored glasses and bottles upon it.  ---Guardsman of Gor, p 254

 

 

Mead:

 

Mead is a drink brewed with fermented honey, spices and water, favored by those of the North. It is a sweet and thick drink.

 

Serving: It is usually served at room temperature or warmed by the fires, in a horn, stored in casts or kegs in the back of the serving. If it is wanted warmed, you will have to get a kettle to place upon the fires to heat. If not, mead is a drink that will be filled in the horn prior to reaching the Free Persons feet.

 

In the north generally, mead, a drink made with fermented honey and water, and often spices and such, tends to be favored over paga.  ---Vagabonds of Gor, page 16

 

 

Milk:

 

Milk can be either from the verr or the bosk.

 

Serving: It is stored in the chillery, usually served in a goblet.

 

Too I had brought up a small bowl of powdered bosk milk. We had finished the creams last night.  ---Guardsman of Gor, page 295

Mulled Ka-la-na:

 

Mulled ka-la-na is a heated ka-la-na with mulling spices. It is normally topped off with a garnish of fruit such as the ka-la-na or tospit.

 

Serving: The ka-la-na is stored in bottles in the chillery, along with the garnishments of the fruit and the mulling spices are stored in the dry storage area of the kitchen. You will do the same as a warmed ka la na except you will add the mulling spices at the hearth and add the garnishments after you have poured the drink at the feet of the Free Person. You will need a kettle or pot to warm the ka la na on the hearth.

 

Palm Wine:

Palm wine is a smooth, dry, clear wine made from the palm leave fruits, it is an export of the Schendi.

 

Serving: It is stored in bottles in the chillery, normally served chilled and in a goblet. Once in the kitchen, you will retrieve the bottle and the goblet and pour the palm wine at the feet of the Free Person.

 

One of her most delicious exports is palm wine.   ---Explorers of Gor Pg. 115

 

 

Sand Kailla Milk:

It is a reddish and salty milk from the kailla, and high in ferrous sulfate.

 

Serving: It is stored in the chillery and served in goblets, much like bosk and verr milk.

 

"...when we camped near the watering  holes in the vicinity of nomads, the milking of verr and kailla.  Too, she was taught the churning of milk in skin bags."  ---Tribesman of Gor, Pg 73

 

Sa Tarna Paga:

Sa Tarna paga is a strong, fermented drink, brewed from the yellow grains of Gor's staple crop, sa tarna. It is a symbol of physical love, its taste often described as "hot" and "firey."

 

Serving: It is stored in botas in the chillery, hanging by the hearth and in the back of the kitchen. It is served in a footed bowl either warmed, chilled or room temperature. It can be served in a footed bowl, a goblet, or mugs. You will go to the kitchen and retrieve the bowl and the bota, making sure you pick the bota from the correct spot. The Sa Tarna Paga should be poured at the Free Persons feet.

 

The Older Tarl and I may have drunk too much of that fermented brew concocted with fiendish skill from the yellow grain, Sa-Tarna and called Pagar-Sa-Tarna, Pleaure of the life Daughter, but almost always Paga for short: I doubted that I would ever touch the stuff again.  ---Tarnsmen of Gor, pg 61

Sul Paga:

Sul Paga  is made from the golden vine borne vegetable called "sul" (resembles an earth potato), Sul-Paga is a distilled, clear alcoholic beverage. It is typically drunk by peasants and seldom available outside their villages.

 

Serving: It is served in the same fashion as Sa Tarna paga.

 

Sul paga, as anyone knew, is seldom available outside of a peasant village, where it is brewed. Sul paga would slow a thalarion. To stay on your feet after a mouthful of Sul paga it is said one must be of the peasants, and then for several generations. And even then, it is said, it is difficult to manage. There is a joke about the baby of a peasant father being born drunk nine months later.  ---Slave Girl of Gor, p 414

 

Slave Wine:

 

Slave Wine is a black, bitter drink made from the sip root. It is given to slaves once a month or so as a contraceptive.

 

Serving: It can either be mixed to a wine which will be drunk in a mug or it can be given by the girl chewing directly on the sip root itself.

 

Slave wine is bitter, intentionally so. Its effects lasts for more than a Gorean month. I did not wish the females to conceive. A female slave is taken off slave wine only when it is her master's intention to breed her.  ---Marauders of Gor, p 23

 


Ta Wine:

 

A dry wine made from ta grapes grown primarily in the Isle of Cos.

 

Serving: It is stored in bottles in the dry storage area of the kitchen, served either at room temperature or warmed in a goblet or tankard. Poured at the feet of the Free Person.

 

One girl held our head back, and others, from goblets, gave us of wines, Turian wine, sweet and thick, Ta wine, from the famed Ta grapes, from the terraces of Cos, wines even, Ka-la-nas, sweets and dry, from distant Ar.    ---Tribesmen of Gor, p 213

 

Turian Wine:

 

A thick syrupy wine so sweet and thick that is it said one can see a thumbprint on its surface.

 

Serving: It is stored in bottles in the dry storage area of the kitchen, served in goblets, poured at the feet of the Free Person.

 

I did not much care for the sweet, syrupy wines of Turia, flavored and sugared to the point where one could almost leave one's fingerprint on their surface.  ---Nomads of Gor, p 84

 

White Wine:

 

A wine light in color and in taste, simply called wine.

 

Serving: It is stored in bottles in the chillery, served in a goblet at the feet of the Free Person.

 

In the hall was a open circle of small tables, at which a handful of guests, on cushions and mats, reclined. There were four men and two women at these tables, other than the Lady Florence, the hostess, and her guest of the past several days, the Lady Metpomene. The tables were covered with cloths of glistening white and a service of gold. Before each guest there were tiny slices of tospit and larma, small pastries, and in a tiny golden cup, with a small golden spoon, the clustered, black, tiny eggs of the white grunt. The first wine, a light white wine, was being deferentially served by Pamela and Bonnie.
---Fighting Slave of Gor, pp 275-276

 

Water:

 

Water can be found in the fresh water streams of Gor or the roots of the liana plant. It can be stored in barrels in the kitchen or by the stream. It is served in goblets.

 

Another useful source of water is the liana vine. One makes the first cut high, over one's head, to keep the water from being withdrawn by contraction and surface adhesion up the vine. The second cut, made a foot or so from the ground, gives a vine tube which, drained, yields in the neighborhood of a liter of water.  ---Explorers of Gor, p 311

 

 

Notes on Serving:

 

1. You will ask permission to approach the Free Person.

 

2. You will ask the Free Person how you may be of service.

 

3. You will acknowledge what the Free Person has asked for, repeating His or Her request in order not to be mistaken and thank the Free for allowing you to be of service.

 

4. You will move to the kitchen.

 

5. You will find the vessel in which you will be using to serve.

 

6. You will clean the vessel with either a rep cloth, your silks or the strands of your hair. The later being normally only for your Master/Mistress and you will check the vessel for any flaws by encircling the rim around a soft part of your skin, wrists, neck, inside of the thigh, nipple. The later, you will save for your Master or Mistress. At no time, unless specifically asked or you are wishing to be used will you check for flaws using your heat.

 

7. You will retrieve the drink, checking for freshness and fullness of the bota or bottle. With bottled drinks, it is best to use one still in the seal and take to the Free Persons feet so They may check the bottle for Their pleasure.

 

8. If any heating is needed of the drink, you will move to the hearth and prepare the drink there.

 

9. You will move back to the feet of the Free Person in which you serve.

 

10. You will bring the properly poured drink to your heart, holding it there for three full beats as you say a prayer for that Free Person, then bring it to your lips and kiss the side of the vessel. Remember here that you will need to turn the vessel one quarter of a turn so that His/Her lips never touch that of where a slaves lips have touched.

 

11. You will offer the drink to the Free Person, again thanking Them for allowing you to be of service to Them. Then await further instructions.

 

The most important thing to remember is have fun with it and add your own special touches. A Master or Mistress will not enjoy the same serve every time you serve, make it different. Be descriptive in your movements, the ambiance of the room, the look of the vessel, how you feel to be serving. Good luck and always remember: Serve from the Heart! ays remember: Serve from the Heart!
