It Is The Tuesday Quiz Time

Okay I am going to make this difficult this time around for a change , okay? The answers will be posted later tonight as usual.

1. Today you see in the liquor stores many different flavoured vodkas that are used to make many different martinis such as your raspberry or sour apple martinis. However in Russia and Poland where vodka is drank often they also have many different flavours added to their vodkas. One of the great vodkas come from Poland called Polish Zubrowka. It is infused with Zubrowka. What is Zubrowka?

2. Bonne chauffe is what the second distillation of this spirit is called?

3. A measure of Scotch whiskey is called what in Scotland?

4. Jersey lightening is a term used for what brandy?

5. When you serve a drink such as creme de menthe frappe what does that mean?

I think if you get 2 right you are an expert. This was difficult.

Ok...no cheating...
1) I'll guess pepper because pepper is great!
2)if Bonne is good and I don't kniow what Chauffe is then I'll guess its "Good and Plenty " licorice candy liquour.
3) A measure of scotch in Scotland would be a bottle.
4)I happen to know that Jersey lightning is Applejack by way of my good buddy Danny Boglivy and his famous jersey lightning calvados chicken. Danny was also famous for slow dancing to fast songs and announcing to crowds in redneck bars in his thick jersey accent
"I used to be a Yankee, but I'm a Texan now"
Danny was only 4'8" tall, but he was the funniest guy I ever met so no one ever beat the crap out of him. Thanks for reminding me of my good friend Danny...if you are ever in Everett, go see him at Dannys Diner and tell him Renfro sent you.

5) When I was a kid mom and Dad would let me order Creme de Menthe Parfait's for dessert. they were great! Creme de Ment5he frappe'? is that like a grasshopper?

Okay...I had to ask on the first, didn't know the second, but got the last three [I think?] But that doesn't make me a smartie - it means I 1. Either I hung out in bars too much or 2. Drink a lot....lol [this from a former waitress ;D]

1. My lovely grandmother says Zubrowka is Buffalo Grass - so a herb-y tasting vodka? And do they really have the word buffalo in the Polish language? Cool :D

2. Bonne Chaueffe is Cognac

3. I have no idea what a measure of scotch is in Scotland [Help Bulletholes!]

4. Jersey lightening is Applejack brandy.

5. And this made me nauseous - no offense, but my Mom loved this stuff - A creme de menthe frappe is the liquor served over crushed ice with a cherry garnish [at least that was how she drank it] It reminds me [now] of Nyquil.

Where do you get such cool questions? Like the Zubrowka and Scotch? Did you pick them up in your jobs/travels? Love to know.

A measure of scotch is a dram, and frappe is over shaved ice. Otherwise, NO clue lol

Bulletholes...you are all over the jersey lightening. Glad to remind you of a good friend. Hey Chef!!

SkippyMom..no wonder you are smart cause if your grandmother knew that wow! I just get the questions from my books and notes.

Waiter Extraordinaire said...

Sous Gal...nice one on the Scotch. Shaved or is it crushed ice? Hmmm..thanks for playing.

Waiter Extraordinaire said...

George...welcome and well done indeed! However I got crushed ice instead of shaved. Shaved are bigger oblong like ice cubes whereas the crushed ice are small bits of ice that leave no space in between when you pour over it. Before they made ice machines that make crushed ice you used to have to put some ice in a towel and hit it vigorously with a mallet to crush it into small bits.Then you put it into a old fashion glass , pour the liqueur over it like creme de menthe green and serve with a cherry. Frappe in french means hit so the liqueur and ice cooling it down quickly would make for a brain freeze when drank.
