    Ready for today's clue? One guess per participant.

    A substitution of a Nordic liquor for a Slavic one in this supposed hangover cure gives this drink a Scandinavian flair.

    Angela Harris won this: Bloody Dane or Danish Mary

      Strong Akvavit or aquavit.
      Its name derived from aqua vitae, the Latin for "water of life" and it contains 40% alcohol.

    I only look at the first guesses among the participants, and among them, I haven't seen the right answer yet. Yes, it might be the longest so far in this contest, although in HubLove a couple of years ago, I believe one went on for about 6 hours (that was really, really hard, though...)

        Jason Menayanposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        No, it wasn't, but it's not correct.

          Habee said akvavit

          1. Jason Menayan profile image59
            Jason Menayanposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Akvavit is not what irenev17 guessed. She guessed Bloody Swedish Blonde. Akvavit is just one of the ingredients in this drink, apparently.

                What i meant was they both meant the same thing just a sleight spilling mistake  smile

                  Jason Menayanposted 8 years agoin reply to this

                  No, one is an ingredient in another. Just like tequila and a margarita are not the same thing; one goes into the other.

  22. IzzyM profile image87
    IzzyMposted 8 years ago

    I thought oceansunsets got it right with bloody mary, but if it's not that might as well guess a black russian.

  23. Jason Menayan profile image59
    Jason Menayanposted 8 years ago

    Still haven't seen the correct answer among the first guesses of our participants.

    Twenty One Daysposted 8 years ago

    actually, habee and my wife are both right about that ingredient, as Jason said, but wrong about the name. I have to learn not to push the enter key as fast. bad habit. wink

    Bloody Dane

    1. Jason Menayan profile image59
      Jason Menayanposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Correct!

      The other correct name would have been Danish Mary, answered by PrettyPanther, but, unfortunately, after she had already guessed another answer.

      The Bloody Dane or Danish Mary is a Bloody Mary, except the vodka is substituted with akvavit (aquavit).

      Congratulations, Angela. You have 3 bonus entries in tomorow's Daily Drawing.

  26. Angela Harris profile image67
    Angela Harrisposted 8 years ago

    Yay! Of course it would be a question about alcohol that I would get correct! Ha ha!
