Happy Sunday-ness to you! Ready for today's puzzle? Well, GET ready, because this is a good one:
This cocktail blends a local grape brandy, lemon juice, simple syrup, bitters, and a dollop of whipped egg whites. Although its origin is disputed, this country's cocktail would not use liquor aged in wooden barrels.
alexandriaruthk got it today- this eggy-lemony cocktail is the pisco sour of Peru. Nice!
Interesting about dispute of the origin, but there is a mountain range in Spain named Pisco, in Galicia
...After the Spaniards conquered the area, they began planting grapes from the Canary Islands to produce wine. Eventually, vintners settled on an improved version of the black grape called the Quebranta. Grapes deemed useless for winemaking were given to local farmers, who began distilling them into brandy. One town known for making this brandy was Pisco, named after small birds inhabiting the region...
You didn't ask for the country, but both Chile and Peru claim it.
Waaah! I wish you said it all together!! Super close T___ T
Simone, I see it in the question, you say, "in this country"
"This country" would mean a single country. We both gave two countries. I clarified my answer later to Peru, but if we only get one guess, that answer would not be eligible. didn't we get 3 guesses in the other daily contests? I'm confused!
I really don't care who wins this. Really! I've already won several daily contests.
Simone I concede because I think habee answer it first, thanks
I think it has to be on your first answer, see Jason's comment on Day 21?
Also, one answer only, unless that has changed? I recall cause he made such a point of it.
The country is specified in the question, and the whole week was to include place and food or drink, etc.
Oops, day 23 , rather, it was clarified there.
Jason had said,
"Remember, you must tell me both the dish and the national origin to win this week's world cuisines-themed Daily Puzzle."
I recall others not getting it, when they just guessed the item first, but not the country, so it was clarified again.
that makes the assumption that contestants are faithfully following every drawing....such an assumption shouldnt be made in contest form.
Jason always pointed out in each daily drawing that the country was required - since it wasnt posted it wouldnt logically be required.
There is no question of this truth.
Im sure its a non-issue for all involved, but in theory its not contestable that the foul is dealer side.
its true the original question makes no request for a country of origin .. the fact that you pointed out that it is disputed makes it seem even less likely that it was required
should give out the bonus to both who answered correctly, the foul is def on the side of the dealer on this one !
Thanks, Sunforged. That's the way I see it, but I'm not gonna get bent out of shape over something like this.
Actually, Alexandria and I were BOTH wrong if we should have answered the country that refused to age in wooden barrels. That would be Peru only. Chile uses oak barrels.
No prob on my side, I honestly think habee got it first, It is ok with me and I acknowledged that habee answered it first!
I think both of them should get 3 chances in tomorrow's drawing since it was not mentioned today that the country was required too. I know it has been during the week, but each contest stands alone in a new thread.
Hey y'all, I'll check with Jason and get back to you! I was under the same impression as oceansnsunsets, but I could be wrong. Hold tight!
You did mention "in this country" in the question, but I don't feel it was made clear AGAIN that the product AND country were both required in the single answer.
CHANCES in a drawing cost HP nothing. It seems like a simple fix to a misunderstanding.
if you read the thread habee followed it up with the two countries. I hope me and habee could get six each hehe
Who won today's drawing - the one from yesterday's topic? Could someone tell me where they post that? I know it wasn't me because I didn't get an email...just wanted to congratulate the winner!
Well, this day's Puzzle puts in a bit of a pickle. (Get it? ) Even without the reminder that you should include the country's name, the question itself makes it fairly clear that you would have to guess the Peruvian pisco sour, as a variant of this Andean cocktail, because Chilean would be wrong as habee explained.
So, what we'll do is give both habee and alexandriaruthk 1 1/2 bonus entries apiece. If the random number falls on that entry which is shared by both habee and alexandriaruthk, we'll give both the $50 prize. Sound fair? (I'd rather not give out 6 total entries, as this would dilute the chances for those who submitted Hubs)
BTW, since the topic of food is still going strong for a couple more days of the contest, I'd love to share this little tasty treat we saw at the San Francisco Pride Parade this morning. We thought it was hilarious.
Jason, I knew it would be worked out to everyone's satisfaction. Thanks!
BTW, where are the daily drawing winners posted?
LOL, Jason! Better not let Ron Montgomery see these - you know how he is about cupcakes!!
As always, a fair solution. It makes sense that 6 entries would take away from the chances the others have in the drawing. I had actually considered the 1.5 thingy, but couldn't figure out how to do the halves. Excellent idea, Jason. I'm rooting for the halvsie ticket to win so they both win $50. LOL
Thanks Jason and habee let us win the half LOL, so we both win!
