6/24/2016 – Lemons and Lemonade


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.

We’re continuing our summer series (after our Watermelon and Ballpark Foods entries) with a nice, tall glass of lemonade. Now, let’s make life rue the day it thought it could give us lemons. Enjoy!

1. What’s the difference between regular lemonade and pink lemonade? This is good to know, because I’m shocked how many times this question comes up in my own life.

Question 1

2. Name the candy seen here.

Question 2

3. British Columbia winery owner Anthony von Mandl is the creator of what beverage, whose namesake person is apparently a mystery?

4. Coca-Cola makes the lemon and lime drink Sprite. Give the name (which has recently changed) of the drink made by PepsiCo as a direct competitor. As a side note, 7 Up is made by the Dr Pepper Snapple Group.

5. What’ll be the first thing you notice if you order the lemonade drink citron pressé while in France?

6. Which of the five mother sauces of France is traditionally seasoned with lemon juice?

Next week: More food trivia. Have a great weekend!
