Whiskey can be a writer's muse! Browse through literature of any era, be it romantic, social, political or anything you will find its presence.

Not only whiskey, alcohol has its share in the world of literature. Among all the alcoholic fleeting appearances in literature, let's talk about whiskey and its relationship with the author.








"What can equal a mother's love? Except a good drink of whiskey " - by Nobel prize winner William Faulkner, in his very first novel, Soldiers' Pay.

It is said that this American interwar period Nobel laureate William Faulkner has a very professional relationship with Whiskey.




Whiskey made frequent appearances in his work. He loves his whiskey, but when he writes his draft he prefers to be sober, upon completion he celebrated with his love, the Whiskey.

Some of his publishers once stated that William Faulkner had once been hospitalized with his burnt back, when he accidentally slept on the hot radiator after he celebrated his manuscript submission. When the publisher asked him about the incident, he was very curt in his response, saying it was his vacation!!!

William was lonely and had issues with his family. But that didn't hinder him to become one of America's greatest novelist.He loved the bourbon based cocktail Mint Juleps, but he only had them on hot summer afternoons. Although he stated he loves whiskey, it might be that he wanted to stay away from the harsh reality of family issues. In one of his famous novel in 1927,he wrote :"What is it that makes a man drink whisky on a night like this, anyway?"





"Never delay kissing a pretty girl or opening a bottle of whiskey." -Ernest Hemingway. One of America's greatest novelists from the twentieth century. "Papa " as we fondly remember him. He was referred to as the most prodigious drinker. He loved to have french wine with Pablo Picasso, he enjoyed a tropical rum cocktail in Havana.But he's all time favorite is soda and scotch. We might all tasted "Death in the Afternoon ", a simple mix of Champagne and absinthe.
His love of scotch and whisky appeared in most of his works.

"There is no bad whisky. There are only some whiskies that aren't as good as others."- by Raymond Chandler, a British-American author. He is also known as the father of hard-boiled detective fiction.

One of the letter from 1955,we found that this postmodern novelist has a routine, which starts with a drink of white wine and ends his day with two bottles of Scotch.But his protagonist Philip Marlowe,from his popular novels loved to have Gimlets cocktail(a mixture of gin and lime juice). He himself doesn't like it at all.




  • Any Glass

    When there is no specific glass suggested for a cocktail, it's up to you to chose a glass.
    Either you just go ahead and serve using any glass available to you following these simple rules
    A. Go for Tall or Collins Glasses, Highball Glasses or even Hurricane Glasses for cocktails with loads of non-alcoholic mixes, and those that require crushed or cubed ices,
    B. But if your cocktail is aromatic and liqueur based, and has a complex character that must reach the nose use a wide mouthed Cocktail Glass.
    C. Red Wine Glasses for cocktails that have a Red Wine as the base spirit. Red Wine Glasses have a wider mouth and a long stem, so that the wine can be swirled an aerated to release the aroma while the long stem keeps the fingers away and avoid quick warming of the wine.
    D. White Wine Glasses for cocktails with a White Wine base, since White Wines must not be aerated as much as a Red Wines, since they oxidise fast when in contact with air, White Wine glassware, in contrast to the wide mouthed bowl of a Red Wine Glassware, is narrow with a narrow mouth. A White Wine has much lighter and delicate notes and the narrow mouth and less surface area in contact with air helps retain the aroma.
    E. If your cocktail is based on a Sparkling Wine like Champagne then a Flute Glass is more suitable since a Sparkling Wine is a White Wine with a secondary fermentation that produces the bubbles, and the narrow mouth flute prevents the bubbles from escaping.
    F. If it's winter and you are in the mood for some hot cocktails like the Irish Coffee or Hot Toddy, go for the Irish Coffee Glass, it has a heat resistant glass and a handle.
    G. Martini Glasses for Martinis or "Tinis" in general, but since these glasses have fallen off of favour these days, a Cocktail Glass will be good too.
    H. IF you are serving Margaritas, don't look for Margarita Glass if you don't have one at home, Double Old Fashioned Glass or other glasses are more common these days, for serving Margaritas.
    I. If you are the adventurous one, and are serving shots or shooters, of course the Shot Glass is your choice of glass,
    J. Finally, if you are going all out and serving depth charges and car bomb shots, all you need is a Double Old Fashioned Glass or a Beer Mug for the beer and a shot glass to drop the bomb in.
