Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass opens in theaters today, and it’s bigger and madder than ever.
We find ourselves in London, where Absolem — voiced by the late Alan Rickman — convinces Alice (Mia Wasikowska) to return to Underland through a glass mirror. Our fearless protagonist discovers she must go back in time to save her friend the Hatter, and in doing so, runs into friends and foes, some new, some old.
In honor of the new film, we created a whimsical Alice Through the Looking Glass inspired menu for your viewing and munching pleasure.
Stuffed Cheesy Mushrooms
Caterpillar: By the way, I have a few more helpful hints. One side will make you grow taller…
Alice: One side of what?
Caterpillar: … and the other side will make you grow shorter.
Alice: The other side of what?
Caterpillar: THE MUSHROOM, OF COURSE!
No Alice themed menu is complete without mushrooms. There’s no riddle to solve here; our Stuffed Cheesy Mushrooms are so easy to make, you’d think they were magic.
Drink Me Potion
In order to fit through a small door, Alice drinks a magical potion that allows her to shrink in size. The flavors are a mix of cherry-tart, custard, pineapple, roast turkey, toffy, and hot buttered toast. While we don’t recommend consuming that entire flavor profile, this delectable Drink Me smoothie made with cherries and cream will do just fine.
Bacon Deviled Eggs
Humpty Dumpty grows from an egg that Alice purchases from a curiosity shop. He settles on top of a wall and recites a poem for Alice, which he explains “was written entirely for (her) amusement.” Lucky for us, these Bacon Deviled Eggs won’t spout nonsensical poems at a moment’s notice.
Alice encounters a magical Eat-Me cake after shrinking from the Drink Me Potion. In the film, the cake looks suspiciously like a square-shaped Petit Four, which are small, iced cakes covered in fondant.
Shortbread Tea Cookies
Hatter: It’s always six o’clock now.
Alice: Is that the reason so many tea-things are put out here?
Hatter: Yes, that’s it. It’s always tea-time, and we’ve no time to wash the things between whiles.
These shortbread cookies that look like tea bags are sure to be a hit at any tea party, Alice themed or otherwise.
If stunning cinematography, Jefferson Airplane covers, and Johnny Depp being Johnny Depp is your cup of tea, then you’re in for a treat. Catch Alice Through the Looking Glass in theaters everywhere May 27.
