According to the article, alcoholic beverages preferred by the following writers - with quotes - include:

  • Margarita - Jack Kerouac (Don't drink to get drunk, drink to enjoy life).

  • Daiquiri - Ernest Hemingway (An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools).

  • Clover Club Cocktail - Dorothy Parker (I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy).

  • Screwdriver - Truman Capote (In this profession, it's a long walk between drinks).

  • Gin Fizz - F. Scott Fitzgerald (Here's to alcohol, the rose colored glasses of life).
