    What\'s your pleasure, Mr. President?

    There is a cartoon, hanging in the Getz, with many of our past President's lookin rather short ...Hmmmmmm can't think of a better word to descirbe it...with the exception of Abraham Lincoln...but the rest of em look like they have been smashed ... Erica (my daughter) says it's a political cartoon...I still say they all look a little smashed The caption (above the cartoon) : What's Your Pleasure, Mr. President?

    Nixon His preference Scotch

    Garfield I wouldn't say no to a glass of Champagne Rhine wine or lager

    Grant Generaly speaking I like whiskey

    McKinley Don't mind if I do

    Cleveland A little Champaigne would suit the season

    Madison Wine if you have it, if not, I'll settle for punch

    Polk I don't drink

    Pierce Anything

    Taft Half a glass of Champagne punch, so long as there's plenty of lemon juice, sugar and club soda in it for digestion

    Taylor What's everybody else having?

    Lincoln A drop of Champagne please, just to be civil


    Washington Maderia, Claret, Port or Chanpagne. I'm not fussy

    Teddy Roosevelt Cherry please

    Tyler A Mint Julep, please. Crush a few sprigs of mint with a spoon in a clean glass or silver cup. Rub the mint over the inside of the glass, then throw away. Fill the glass with finely cracked ice. Slowly pour in a measure of bourbon. Then add about two tablespoons of water in which a lump of sugar has been disolved. Do not stir for decoration set a few sprigs of fresh mint in the mouth of glass

    Truman Bourbon and branch

    Filmore I never touch the stuff

    Franklin Roosevelt I'll have an old fashioned, and down the Volstead Act. Muddle a lump of sugar, a dash of angostura bitters, and a splash of club soda in a old fashioned glass. Add a ice cube, a slice of orange, a couple of cherries, a twist of a lemon peel, a piece of pineapple, and about two ounces of whiskey. Top it off with a spash of club soda

    Jefferson The best wine you may have in your cellar, sir

    Arthur Wine Gentleman, but may I see the label

    Wilson maybe a scotch and soda, but let's keep it out of the press

    Jackson Well at my inaugural we had orange punch. The closest thing to it in this day, I suppose, would be to add the juice of 6 oranges to two pints of carbonated water, sweetened with sugar and put it in a punch bowl with 16 ounces of rum, two ounces of curacao, and a large piece of ice

    JFK A daiquiri thank you. Take six parts white label rum, two parts lime juice, one part sugar syrup. Shake with shaved ice or beat in mixer

    Adams My usual rum punch, please. Strain three cups of strong green tea over 1 and 1/2 pounds of white sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Add the juice of 6 lemons. The grated rind of three. One quart of Jamica rum and a quart of Brandy.

    Lyndon Johnson A little Scotch in moderation

    John Quincy Adams Sangaree, please. Simmer in water 8 cloves, a cinnamon stick, ten whole allspice, and some nutmeg for about twenty minutes. Strain and add 8 tablespoons of white sugar to the liquid. Cool: when ready to serve add four cups of a choice claret and pour over a block of ice in a punch bowl decorated with grapes and grape leaves.

    Monroe Something with a punch to it. Take the juice of 12 oranges, a gallon of catawba wine, a quart of Jamacia rum and a sufficiency of sugar. Should be mixed a day ahead of time.

    Andrew Johnson Tennessee Whiskey by choice

    Harding I'll have a whiskey or wine. Up the Volstead Act, down the hatch

    Hoover Did I hear a crash someplace?

    Eisenhower To the best of my knowlegde I like Coke

    Hayes Milk

    Van Buren Cherry if you please

    William Henry Harrison Hard Cider

    Buchanan Champagne. But only if it's the best

    Ford "Enjoys relaxing with a gin and tonic and a slice of lime"

    Carter A little Bourbon-in his tea

    LOL: Coolidge __________________

    Probably my favorite President story is about Calvin Coolidge. He was indeed a man of few words. His nickname was "Silent Cal".

    One time he was seated next to a talkative socialite at a Presidential dinner. She confidentially said to him, "My friend bet me $100 that you wouldn't say three words to me all evening." Without missing a beat, Coolidge replied, "You lose."
