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.
