    Maybe you're thinking of potato = apple of the earth. 

    In Russia, vodka means little water.

    In France we pronounce the word Whiskey, like: Weeskee. 

    As for ' Eau de vie ', we say like: 'Oh deuh vee '


    - '' Eau de vie '' literally: Water of life, is an alcohol made with distillation (single or double) of a low alcoholic beverage or pomace: boiler wine (wine brandy), wine pomace (marc brandy); beverage of fruits, rhizomes, grains, etc....

    The minimum degree of this drink is: 37,5 °.

    "un/le whisky"

    (Sometimes spelled "whiskey" for Irish or US whisky.)

  • They say whisky (masculine pronounced ooiski) just as we say cognac.  "Un whisky s'il vous plait - pas de glace."

    They say whiskey, you might want to look up what they call bourbon though ;)  And be prepared to feel just a little insulted!
