"The Gigglewater is non-negotiable."
Seraphina Picquery, President of the MACUSA.[src]

Gigglewater is a wizarding alcoholic beverage that was circulated in the United States.[1]

Pinnock was one brand of Gigglewater sold in the 1920s. Its ingredients included Chuckle extract.

True to its name, Gigglewater may cause the drinker to laugh out loud when consumed.[2]

Despite the American No-Majs enforcing Prohibition during the 1920s, Seraphina Picquery's stance on the matter was, as she famously put it to her Chief of Staff, that "Gigglewater is non-negotiable".[1]

Etymology

  • Gigglewater or giggle water are slang words which really exist. Indeed, it's of the American slang to refer to an "intoxicating beverage, alcohol" as such during the Prohibition.[3] It was especially used when describing champagne.[4]
