7/21/17 – Supervocalic Drinks

vowels-represented-in-blocks

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.

Today’s post is inspired by the recent Supervocalics 1DS on the LL main site, and now I bring that fun to you. For those who didn’t take the quiz, a supervocalic is a word that contains each of the five vowels, only once. There are TONS of interesting examples in English, and this quiz will feature some. There’s a Facebook group dedicated to this form of wordplay, and after I asked the group for some examples, they really came through. So much, I feel very comfortable splitting this edition into one for drinks and one for foods.

Today’s quiz features the drinks. Each answer contains all five vowels, and I will say that only one of them also features the letter Y. Enjoy!

Also: If you can think of any other drinks that fit this category, feel free to leave a comment and let me know!

1. Every bottle or can of what beer features the following message below its central logo: “Nature’s choicest products provide its prized flavor. Only the finest of hops and grains are used. Selected as America’s Best in 1893.”?
