    A great list, if you had stopped at #8. BTW, Churchill drank drank cognac, not whiskey, and Pols champagne. At least a bottle of each, daily.

    Please remove serial criminal Hillary Clinton from this list. Hunt down the author who said "The is no such thing as a large whiskey." Put him in her place.

    While John Wayne slugged a few shots of whiskey in the movies, his wife once said he preferred to sip on a good Tequila...

    The fact that HRC was drunk or at least tipsy is the better of her explanations. I may be better able to deal with her knowing she likes bourbon.

    re: Clinton...she probably stole the bottle' after.
    re: Churchill...He often reflected that he was taught by his father “to have the utmost contempt for people who get drunk.” “I have taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of me”
    Though Churchill did not care for Roosevelt’s version of a martini, he was known to enjoy one. His recipe, however, was slightly different. He loved Plymouth gin but he was not a fan of vermouth. Once, when asked how much he wanted in his martini, he replied: “I would like to observe the vermouth from across the room while I drink my martini.” This gave birth to the "Churchill Martini”, which is little more than gin poured over ice while vermouth is presented in the same room. reportedly said that the four essentials of life were “Hot baths, cold champagne, young women and old brandy”.
