Pretty good, but I think it may have been better if you had added another clue which narrowed it down to one possible answer.

I think you should of added the word ORANGE to the answer it is color and Beverage

nope.. Orange is a fruit ... orange JUICE is a beverage.
Then again, I got confused at rose (isn't that a flower?) but then I realised it was supposed to be rosé.
It might have been more interesting if a certain number of answers were asked for, so that we know when to give up listing them ^_^

Okay, ORANGE could be considered a drink because there is orange soda.

However, aren't most of these colors named after the drinks?

So, it really is a pointless teaser.

go to a paint store these days, and you'll see colors named after anything...I'm sure every type of wine, including wine, has a color.

I'm sure you can find a paint called Root Beer, or cola.

"Is chocolate really a beverage?"

Don't quote me on this.....

Hundreds of years ago, way before chocolate bars where created, the substance of chocolate was in liquid form, and drank by the wealthy. I'm guessing it would have tasted like melting a Hershey's and drinking it Doesn't seem very appealing.

a bit too difficult,you should have given a another clue.
and is wine a colour?????????????????
GebbieRoseAus*
Sep 03, 2006

Yes, wine is a color. I thought this one was good - a little challenging, but that's good, too.

I never knew there was a color wine
coryphaeuslt

too vague. Maybe a fun way to clarify it would be to say that the color gets its name from the beverage? Certainly, that eliminates orange (orange the color is based on orange the fruit) With that, I think you have an accurate list. Certainly Champagne, Burgundy, etc are named after something else (regions of France) but the colors come from the beverages themselves.

one protest: is cream a beverage? don't think i'd imbibe straight cream, but to each his own, i guess.

that being said, you'd have to drop chocolate, since it's not definitively a beverage. If you take chocolate, you have to take orange, grape, etc... Also, I'd drop Rose, especially since Rose the beverage gets its name because of its color, and not the other way around. This is of course based on my suggestion for clarifying the rules, but I feel there need to be more guidelines or else this is just open to conjecture...

I feel like most of the answers are not colors, and also most of the answers aren't beverages. Or at least, no some that I've heard.

quite good, but as everyone else has stated it could be clearer. Keep trying. thank you.

What about merlot? Cognac? Cafe au lait? (not the same as coffee) All commonly used as colors. Not much of a teaser when the answer is a random sample of what came to the author's mind.

Rose and rosé are different words. Rose is not a drink and rosé is not a colour.

Have to agree with the previous poster about cream; liquid it may be, but it's not a drink. Chocolate is a common enough abbreviation for hot chocolate, and to the person asking about chartreuse (and anyone else wondering), it's a liqueur made from apples.
