George W. Bush: Diet cola with a slice of lemon

Oh come on.  Yes, we all know he was an alchy.  So at least tell us what he drank before he turned into a quitter.

Speaking of which, does anyone know if the President still went to AA meetings while he was President?

Actually, now that I think about it, somebody should write that song. 88 Lines about 44 Presidents

Washington would not be king, all he wanted was his pride
Adams was a feisty punk, who never found peace til he died

Jefferson was quite the Frenchman, down to banging all the maids
Madison wrote the Constitution, and smacked the British for their raids

James Monroe bought Florida, and thank you so much for all that
John Q was his father's son, and one of our best diplomats

gingerjet: FlashHarry: 38. Gerald R. Ford: Glenfiddich Whiskey over ice
it's whisky, not whiskey!

The NYT style guide disagrees with you:

whiskey(s). The general term covers bourbon, rye, Scotch and other liquors distilled from a mash of grain. For consistency, use this spelling even for liquors (typically Scotch) labeled whisky.

/"whiskey" is used everywhere except for Canada and Scotland


Glenfiddich is from Scotland, so 'whisky' is appropriate here.

No wonder Grover was always trippin balls, the original Sazeracs had absinthe in them.

/green fairies


absinthe is not the big of a deal. I have a bottle of the stuff in my house that was distilled in strict accordance with some 19th century recipe. absinthe does not cause hallucinations. the wormwood content is extremely low. however, it will, in sufficient quantities, bring about all the effects of drunkenness.

/ in a sazerac, you only have a dash of absinthe. like you basically just coat the glass.
// many fancy-schmancy drink places are making sazeracs with absinthe. personally, i think herbsainte will do the trick, and it's a little bit cheaper for a mixer. good absinthe is best under the drip method.
/// absinthe just got the reefer madness treatment back in the day, that's why the urban myth of tripping and green faeries exist. the real green faerie is the consistency of absinthe as you add the correct amount of cold water to it. at the right moment, it becomes very cloudy. that's the green faerie. a matter of taste and appearance in the preparation of the drink

Includes Washington's recipe for porter, Jefferson's for ale, and Ben Franklin's spruce ale. Each delicious in their own way, though the spruce is the most exotic. Tastes like a pine tree, but in a good way.

I can vouch for the porter and the spruce ale. The spruce ale really does have that nice pine note to it!


I have also imbibed in a case of that. The porter is delicious. Wasn't a huge fan of the spruce but still better than 95% of the other microbrew experiments out there.

If you don't have simple syrup on hand? you're boiling water/sugar, muddling fresh mint, and then crushing ice.

So no, if you have all the stuff prepped, it isn't that much trouble, but as an everyday drink where you don't have someone grocery shopping for you, it can be a pain in the ass.

And it wouldn't be bad, were it not for the anise; the main thing I've heard re absinthe from people who can actually drink the stuff is NOT that it gives you a hallucinogenic drunk but a bit of a more "lucid drunk" for want of a better term. Of course, I also think that's because the stuff is between Navy Rum and Kentucky strengths of Everclear on the proof scale, but that's me. :D

(Alas, I cannot has absinthe. I have tried. Unfortunately for the green faerie, it seems anise and I have had a very long understanding that We Do Not Get Along At All, and anything (in particular, any liquor) containing anise tends to serve as a substitute for syrup of ipecac in my case. This would give me a sad, except I've discovered to my great pleasure I get the same "lucid drunk" from good tequila that folks talk about being the actual effects of absinthe.,,,so the green faerie can have her own, and I'll hang out here with my friends the 400 Rabbits :D)

pute kisses like a man: Soulcatcher: notmtwain: 24. Grover Cleveland: Sazarac Cocktail A New Orleans sensation, which swept the nation in the 1880's.

Hmm, I keep hearing about these Sazaracs.   [www.neworleansonline.com image 150x233] I'll have to give them a try.

No wonder Grover was always trippin balls, the original Sazeracs had absinthe in them.

/green fairies

absinthe is not the big of a deal. I have a bottle of the stuff in my house that was distilled in strict accordance with some 19th century recipe. absinthe does not cause hallucinations. the wormwood content is extremely low. however, it will, in sufficient quantities, bring about all the effects of drunkenness.

/ in a sazerac, you only have a dash of absinthe. like you basically just coat the glass.
// many fancy-schmancy drink places are making sazeracs with absinthe. personally, i think herbsainte will do the trick, and it's a little bit cheaper for a mixer. good absinthe is best under the drip method.
/// absinthe just got the reefer madness treatment back in the day, that's why the urban myth of tripping and green faeries exist. the real green faerie is the consistency of absinthe as you add the correct amount of cold water to it. at the right moment, it becomes very cloudy. that's the green faerie. a matter of taste and appearance in the preparation of the drink


My son buys Absinthe occasionally. I've had it, but never bought any myself.

I was more referring to the green fairy in the film Moulin Rouge (Luhrmann's version).

Richard M. Nixon: Bacardi and Coke.
Dick would relish mixing and stirring for his guests aboard the presidential yacht Sequoia.

Jimmy Carter: Alcohol-Free Sparkling Wine
History's greatest monster.


Did some hull repair on Sequoia back in the '90s. Jimmy had sold it out of Presidential service, a monstrous act which proved to me that he was soulless and unworthy of the office. (Backed up by his choice of beverage).
Also dated a girl who thought he was the best President of all, which proved to me she was soulless and unworthy.

I don't think Carter is even worth a superlative.
