Ya, I'm disappointed that my country's only contribution to this list is something I have never liked. We're good at making whiskey and beer, but I guess we haven't invented too many drinks.

I googled the ingredients, and it sounds like a distant cousin of the Mexican Michelada which also has tomato juice, a spicy component, and can have a seafood/celery added. The big difference being Micheladas are mixed with beer not vodka. It sounds weird when described but a cold one after a long day's work hits. Definitely want to try a bloody Caesar now.

Yeah, it is from the Czech Republic (from the city Plzeň that's why it is called Pilsner). Believe me - I'm Czech :)

The method was invented by the German Josef Groll, but he invented it in the city of Pilsen (Plzeň), which was then in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, but is now in the Czech Republic, so that is the correct answer.

For the most part of its history Czechia wasn't an independent country, but a part of a German-speaking Empire, either Holy Roman Empire (aka Germany) or Habsburg/Austro-Hungarian Empire. Some Czech kings from Czech nobility even were some of the most important Holy Roman Emperors! :)

Champagne is literally sparkling wine that comes from one particular region in France that is called, wait for it... Champagne. It's definitely French. If anyone in the UK has ever made what they thought was champagne, they have actually made sparkling wine because it wasn't made in champagne.

The quiz is about where the drinks originated, not by the nationality of those who invented it. Champagne was still developed in the Champagne region of France, regardless of who actually went about making it.

“Traditionally most brands of soju are produced in the Andong region.” (Wikipedia)

Andong is in South Korea. The quiz accepts both North Korea and South Korea but not either of the usual abbreviations.

Lassi being the 4th least recognized drink on this quiz is just further proof to me that Americans and Europeans are tragically underexposed to Indian cuisine, which is personally my favorite cuisine. Of course, the quality of Indian restaurants can vary quite a bit, with a lack of standardization, which is why we need an Indian equivalent, in the USA, to PF Chang's, but I digress...
