Cafe Cucco is a short daily project wherein I create fun little hypothetical foods that might be seen in the land of Hyrule. Any lore or descriptions are made up and should not be taken to represent official canon. I hope you enjoy it!
Welcome to the second day of this little project and the first to include an item from the menu! We'll be starting off slow with some drinks. Today's choice is:
|Nothing too fancy, but pretty enjoyable even if you're a little short on magic!|
Fresh Fairy Brew! A great little drink that's pretty familiar to most cafe-goers. Normal cups of coffee will wake you up a little, but that dash of magic in Fairy Brew's not just for show: this stuff will take the ache out of joints and right any recent physical ailments real quick!
Where does that hint of magic actually come from?
It's all in the name.
Fairies are a recognized part of life around Hyrule. They aren't everywhere you look, but they have their place in cozy caves and other quiet little nooks where ponds can be established.
Though mostly reclusive, a fair number of fairies can be found gathering food from surrounding greenery when it's available. A common favorite is coffee, the trees of which have been noted to be abuzz with activity. As a result, a generous amount of fairy dust coats them over time, making their fruit excellent, beneficial ingredients.
Incidentally, the faint sparkle of fairy dust is also how more experienced adventurers track Fairy Fountains on their travels.
I like to think that folks in the know would plant trees for fairies as a sort of reciprocation for their unrelenting aid to those in need. Over time, these areas might become bountiful with fruit and sustenance, but the resulting growth would probably attract an excess of animal life that'd have fairies leaving for newer, quieter homes.
I hope you've enjoyed today's post. Have suggestions? Questions? Ideas of your own? By all means! Feel free to let me know in a comment.
I'll be seeing you tomorrow for our second serving. Take care!
