Let's get to the answers:

1. Tequila. (Pee-Wee Herman is happy to dance to this!)

2. Gin - Gilahi is on the board.

3. Rum - Like tequila, gold stars for everyone.

4. Champagne; partial credit for Hand of Godard since wine made me laugh.

5. Vodka - Point for Nichole.

6. Peach Schnapps - Point for Carissajaded & Hand of Godard.

7. Creme de mint. Is it really spelled minthe as Nichole wrote above?

8. Scotch and whisky are acceptable answers so point for Gilahi and Hand of Godard. We answered Drambuie and was told it was incorrect.

9. Amaretto - Gilahi controls the board.

10. Bourbon - Nichole finishes the round. Is it bad that I don't know what Ouzo is?

Thanks to everyone for playing. Now a word from our sponsors! (Begin the exit music.)

Ouzo is a Greek liquor that tastes a little bit like Sambuca. I didn't know the answer and that was the first liquor that popped into my head that I hadn't used already. I recommend hitting up a Greek Food Festival sometime and giving it a shot.

Hand of Godard - I'm sorry for not replying sooner. I used to go to Greek Food Festivals all the time when I was younger (well before I was legally allowed to drink). I'll have to go back and try some Ouzo. Thanks!
