Six of the best fictional drinks

Leah Hyslop is the Telegraph's Digital Lifestyle Editor, covering food and drink, property and gardening. One entry from her list of six of the best beverages in books:

In Louis Sachar’s young adult novel Holes, a troubled child runaway called Zero survives in the desert by living off jars of an unpleasant-looking liquid that he calls “sploosh". Little does he know that the jars are full of fermented preserved peaches, made over 100 years ago by the outlaw Katherine "Kissin Kate" Barlow.
Read about the other entries on the list at the Telegraph.

Holes is among Sarah Moore Fitzgerald's top ten books featuring grandparents.
