GAT_00: 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?


Yup. From out in the hall, the whole thing looked like a card game.

Hmm..
Well, if it's good enough for Stringer Bell, I'm going to have to go with it.


Were they out of Black Cock Vigor Gin?

7. Andrew Jackson: Rye Whiskey

A straight two- finger pour of Tennessee's Democratic frontier finest.

Last neat drinker, Salute to you sir.

As a dark liquor drinker it looks like Jerry, Dick, LBJ, Ike, and Harry could all be drinking buddies for me.

Spaced Lion: He also was known to enjoy rye whiskey, specifically this:

And I can see why. It's got one hell of a whang to it, and can make you forget just about damn anything in the space of a few swigs. (Work troubles, family tragedies, you name it. Poof!)


I was so pleased to see Old Overholt turn up as a plot point in the last season of Boardwalk Empire. Before Mellon owned it, it was owned by Henry Clay Frick's family.

SmackLT: SmackLT: Sorry, read the headline as "88 Drinks about 44 Presidents"

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


I comment you if this is yours, nice work.

also whats all this boehner hate cuz he's a drunk. seems like thats the least of the man's social degeneracy. Also pretty sure Grant drank a hell of a lot more corn whiskey than punch.

I know. Sure before he found Jaysus, Dubby's answer to the question "what are you drinking?" was "what do you got?," but this isn't the place to point that out. I mean, we could argue about who offered to suck off whose Alabama National Guard commander for a mouthful of Pearl Light backwash until the cows come home, but it would be silly.

Vote Jebby. He's the smart one. For realsies. I'm super serial this time. What's everybody laughing at?

Homer Nixon: Somewhat related - currently enjoying a case of Yards Ales of the Revolution.

[dl.dropbox.com image 800x526]

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.


Those look tasty! I'll keep an eye out for that the next time I restock my boozeahol stash. I hope it's sold on the West Coast...


mksmith: what_now: Mugato: William J. Clinton: Tanquerary Gin and Tonic

Everyone says he was the first black President.

Gin has got to be the world's whitest drink.

Not to mention it tastes like paint stripper. Disgusting stuff.

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


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)

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.
