Go back through American History and you will find that a majority of our U.S. Presidents enjoyed a good cocktail, so as we head into President’s Day this Monday February 16th, we thought you might want to toast your favorite past President, with what they enjoyed drinking after a long day of running our Country.

lustblog4George Washington – Sold whiskey but rarely, if ever, drank it.As for his favorite drink, he loved dark porter (laced with molasses) that was made in Philadelphia.

Thomas Jefferson – Was such a huge fan of red wine, that he made a huge wine purchase, that Historians say, helped bring him to the brink of financial ruin.

 

 

lustblog1James Monroe – A small scandal occurred during Monroe’s stint in the Executive Mansion when 1,200 bottles of Burgundy and Champagne from France were charged to an account that Congress had earmarked for furniture.

 

 

 

 

lustblog2John Adams – Adams loved alcohol, starting almost every morning with a hard cider, then porter beer, rum, and copious amounts of Madeira.

 

 

Franklin D. Roosevelt – FDR enjoyed gin-based martinis and occasionally whiskey-based Manhattans. His favorite thing to sip while sailing, a Bermuda Rum Swizzle:
• 2 oz. dark rum
• 1 oz. lime juice
• 1 oz. orange juice
• 1 generous dash of Falernum (a sweet syrup)

 

John F Kennedy – enjoyed a good Bloody Mary, so we’ve listed a few of our favorite Bloody Mary Mixes, in case you’re a Democrat:
• McClure’s Bloody Mary Mix @ Dean & DeLuca.
• Bosari Bloody Mary Mix and Rimmer Kit @ Amazon.
• Mixerz All Natural Bloody Mary Mix @ gorcerykitchennetwork.com.

 

Ronald Reagan – Reagan liked California Wines and an Orange Blossom Special made with vodka, so for our Republican Readers we’ve given you the recipe below:
• 1 oz. (or slightly less in Reagan’s case) Lust-Vodka.
• 1 oz. of either grenadine or sweet vermouth
• 2 oz. fresh orange juice
• All brought together in a barroom glass filled with ice.
