9/30/2016 – Cherries


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.

To put the cherry on top of a long LL70, here’s a few questions on cherries. Enjoy!

1. A friend of mine noticed that my name “Chris King” can be anagrammed into the names of two alcoholic drinks, one of those being a brandy distilled from morello cherries. What are those two drinks?

2. Name the variety of sour cherries seen here. Typically grown in Michigan and Wisconsin, they’re named after a suburb of Paris.

Question 2

3. Peaches, plums, and cherries are all what kind of fruit, also called a stone fruit, where the fruit’s flesh surrounds a pit?

4. Complete this analogy. Coca-Cola : Cherry Coke :: Pepsi : _____.

5. Coming in Royal Ann, Rainier, and Gold varieties, what popular cherry variety is typically stored in a corn syrup solution?

Question 5

6. No lie, what geographic feature names the cake seen here?

Question 6

Next Monday: Now that we’re out of LL70, I can tell you about upcoming editions. On Monday, let’s do gum. Enjoy the weekend!


1. Kirsch (which has cherry), gin (which doesn’t)
2. Montmorency
3. Drupe
4. Pepsi Wild Cherry
5. Maraschino
6. Black Forest

One thought on “9/30/2016 – Cherries

  1. Wow – I clearly know NOTHING about cherries (except Kirsch and maraschino of course)… Good one!

    For truly delicious real maraschino cherries (and not the nuclear red ones found in most bars), I highly recommend buying a bottle of Luxardo maraschino cherries, imported from Italy. They will change your Wisconsin Old Fashioned and your life (be careful though – you’ll want to eat them all straight from the jar).
