Everyone’s having a fantastic time with Roy Smallwood and Quizzy Trivia. He comes in to host it every Sunday night at 6:30 p.m. Since he doesn’t write any questions regarding reality TV or People Magazine, here are some trivia tid- bits that might help you and your team win the game.

  • The total alcohol content of a typical can of beer, glass of wine, or spirits drink is virtually identical. To a breathalyzer, a drink is a drink is a drink.
  • The trick to setting liquor aflame in drinks or food dishes is to pre-warm the glass, cooking vessel, and liquor. Preheat a spoonful of liquor, light it, and then pour it into the remaining liquor to be set aflame.
  • Proof expresses the proportion of alcohol in a beverage as twice the percent. For example, a 100-proof beverage is 50% alcohol. It derives from early days when “proof” of a whiskey used in barter was to mix it with gunpowder to see if it contained enough alcohol to burn.
  • Whiskey and whisky both refer to alcohol distilled from grain. Whiskey is the usual American spelling, especially for beverages distilled in the U.S. and Ireland. Whisky is the spelling for Canadian and Scotch distilled beverages.

Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!
