Shaken not stirred…cheap verses expensive…straight up or on the rocks…abstain or indulge…Presidents had and still have favorites when imbibing. Brief nugget here on the first 5 presidents and their drink of choice:
George Washington – Dark Porter Beer…even though he distilled whisky and sold it, making huge profits…George was a beer drinker.
John Adams – Hard Cider…liked it so much he had it with breakfast.
Thomas Jefferson – French Wines…expensive ones filled his cellar.
James Madison – Champagne…although the bubbles could give him a headache.
James Monroe – French Red Wine…liked them so much that he ordered 1,200 bottles of French Burgundy and Champagnes…charged them to furnishings for the White House.
“Blessed are they that see beautiful things in humble places
Where other people see nothing…” Pissarro
Camille Pissarro(July 10, 1830 – November 13, 1903) was a French Impressionist painter. His importance resides not only in his visual contributions to Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, but also in his patriarchal standing among his colleagues, particularly Paul Cezanne and Paul Gauguin.
