Default bananas, beer, and coca cola for fertilizers

I have a book somewhere on making your own fertilizer. been giving my plants beer every now and again, plants in pots. been thinking a little sugar may work as well. the plants look good and with regular granular fertilizer seem to be thriving. anybody ever done this?

I prefer drinking the beer and about an hour later you can drain an excellent liquid fertilizer comparable to miracle grow. ... I'll bet your plant would like it better.

I guess I should have worded my question a little differently. anybody use 7up to make their Christmas trees last longer. sodas and the last little sip of beer to feed your plants. then I throw the can in the recycle bin or use it to kill vines.
