cocktails-1024x493

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.

Been a minute, but a new post is here.

You’re the bartender of a brand new bar here in town called “Duo”. For some reason, your bar specializes in cocktails that only take two ingredients. I mean, I’d serve something like beer, but you do you.

This is your current stock:
Benedictine
Champagne
Coca-Cola
Cognac
Dark rum
Drambuie
Dry vermouth
Gin (x2)
Ginger beer
Grapefruit juice
Grapefruit soda
Kahlúa
Light rum
Orange juice (x2)
Peach puree
Prosecco
Scotch Whisky
Tequila
Vodka (x2)

And, as it turns out, you’ve got 11 customers, and your stock matches up perfectly to their orders! Your job is to find the correct pair, and make their cocktail. Good luck!

B&B
Bellini
Black Russian
Cuba Libre
Dark ‘n’ Stormy
Greyhound
Martini
Mimosa
Paloma
Rusty Nail
Screwdriver
