Famous Authors' Favorite Drinks

It's no secret that some notable authors were also notable imbibers. I'm not going to name any names, but I know a fair number of people who prefer the Hemingway approach to writing. While I can't recommend that route personally, I am interested to know that Oscar Wilde was a fan of absinthe. Whether it's whiskey (neat, please) or a very dry martini, Flavorwire has rounded up a nice gallery of famous authors' favorite drinks. Link

It is pretty common for philosophers to be drunks. Hence the Monty Python song. Which probably has to do with their trying to dominate reality through their intellect. Although many of them penetrates the depths of self-hood, they couldn't give up the juice. I can certainly understand this, vice is not easy to get out of, if it were, it wouldn't be called vice.

Alcohol is easily the most socially-destructive habit enjoyed by the most people. And when a vice has such a large following, it is very hard to discourage. But I do know some who overcame the glorification of alcholism.
