1:D Janis Joplin definitely loved her some Southern Comfort, and always carried a fifth on stage with her.
2:J Queen Elizabeth II – More than tea, Her Majesty prefers a Gordon’s gin and tonic. Oh, and don’t forget the lemon slices. The British Queen takes 3 of them with each drink.
3:I Hunter S. Thompson always drank Wild Turkey on the rocks. Add pills to taste.
4:E Lyndon B. Johnson was a Scotch and soda man. When it was hot outside, the former president loved to drive slowly around his Texas ranch in an open top convertible, taking long pulls from a large foam glass. When his cup runneth low, Johnson simply dangled it out his window. Immediately, a Secret Service agent would run forward, grab the cup, race back to the service car following the president’s, re-fill the beverage, then hustle back to hand it off to the Prez. Secret Service with a smile.
5:A Frank Sinatra and Jack Daniels: the perfect fuel for making him irresistible to your grandmother.
6:B Ernest Hemingway always portrayed himself to be a man’s man, Hemingway loved daiquiris. Particularly the ones made at the Floridita Bar in Havana, where they substituted maschino liqueur for sugar in the diabetic writer’s drinks.
7:F Oprah Winfrey often drinks Lemon Drop Martinis. What can you say? All the money in the world simply can’t buy class. It can buy all of Chicago though.
8:C Rush Limbaugh drinks port wine. That's about as interesting as it gets.
9:H Despite being a big fan of martinis and having a mother who was responsible for the invention of the Manhattan cocktail, Churchy liked sipping on Johnny Walker Red.
10:G Saddam Hussein really wasn't that much different from you dad. While he asked for hot water laced with honey for his last meal, Hussein’s drink of choice was whiskey on the rocks.
