Fermented fruit

"Well, I've bin doin' some readin'. Got this outta the library — Dragon Breeding for Pleasure and Profit — it's a bit outta date, o' course, but it's all in here. Keep the egg in the fire, 'cause their mothers breathe on em, see, an' when it hatches, feed it on a bucket o' brandy mixed with chicken blood every half hour."
Rubeus Hagrid to Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger.[src]

Brandy is a spirit produced by distilling wine, the wine having first been produced by fermenting grapes.[1]

Brandy is enjoyed in both both the Muggle and the Wizarding world: Vernon Dursley used to drink a large brandy to calm himself down,[2] Marjorie Dursley seemed to quite enjoy having brandy after dinner,[3] Cornelius Fudge was offered a brandy at The Leaky Cauldron (though he chose a pot of tea instead),[4] Albus Dumbledore once asked Rubeus Hagrid for a "cup of tea. Or a large brandy"[5] and Rubeus Hagrid asked Molly Weasley for a bottle of brandy "fer medicinal purposes" after the Battle of the Seven Potters (Hagrid went on to drink it straight down in one).[6] One of the methods of raising a newborn dragon is feeding it a bucket of brandy mixed with chicken blood every half hour.[7]
