4/12/2016 – Fictional Beverages (w/ Peter Broda)


Welcome to Five Course Trivia! Five days a week, we’ll post five questions about something from the culinary world, from soup to nuts and all dishes in between.

This week is Guest Week here at FCT, and I’m inviting friends and supporters of the site to craft some of their own questions! For this Tuesday, we have questions by Peter Broda, who’s doing Internet stuff in Regina, Saskatchewan, as well as doing some crossword constructing on the side. Everything after this point was written by him. Enjoy!

1. The drink named for a character portrayed by the women seen here (in 1967 and 2006, respectively) is made using the ingredients seen here, plus another spirit. Though the creator of this drink is perhaps more closely associated with another more common cocktail, these two drinks have in common a specific preparation technique and what spirit?

Question 1

2. Presumably, dishes such as the sausage or “pudding” seen here wouldn’t cut it since the events of a series of novels by Charlaine Harris unfold largely due to the introduction, shortly before the timeline of the first installment, “Dead Until Dark,” of what drink?

Question 2

3. The official mascot of Slurm is “The Original Party Worm” seen here, who is a parody of a real-life mascot for which specific beverage brand?

Question 3

4. A popular choice at the various bars aboard the Battlestar Galactica is the green beverage seen here on the left. It shares a name with both a food often paired with nectar in Greek myth and a British brand of custard and snack products seen on the right. What is this name?

Question 4

5. A certain fictional bar (for which a fan designed the hypothetical logo seen here), is known for serving a family of drinks referred to in Nadsat by a name derived from the Russian молоко, and which contain various psychoactive drugs. These drinks share one common ingredient, which is also an ingredient in viili, shubat, kefir, and, fittingly, a “caucasian.” What is this ingredient?

Question 5

Thanks again to Peter for crafting today’s questions! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s Guest Week author, Ben Ingram!
