In his book Truman, David G. McCullough writes extensively about President Harry S. Truman's love for bourbon, in which he was joined by his wife Bess. He further writes that the President's preferred drink was Old Grand-Dad on the rocks.

"Harry S.Truman: His favorite drink was bourbon. He reportedly had a glass in the morning for breakfast. President Truman was often fond of a glass of bourbon. His favorite brand was I.W. Harper. His wife, Bess, never knew that he kept a hidden stash of it in his personal bathroom."

Something he shared with 007 James Bond - http://teleport-city.com/wordpress/?p=16658
"Bond seems fond of two bourbons in particular ó Old Grand-Dad and I.W. Harper. Of the two, Harper is the harder to find in the United States, though if you happen to be in the middle of a You Only Live Twice adventure in Japan and donít feel in the mood for sake, youíre in luck."

The restaurant "Dish on Market" serves a Truman inspired breakfast of an egg, a slice of bacon, some fruit, toast, a glass of milk and a shot of Old Grand Dad. It is a very good breakfast so if you are ever in Louisville, you should try it.

I don't think the milk and bourbon would be good together. I can see coffee and bourbon.

It's actually quite delicious. Not that I've tried that or anything. :rolleyes:
