"Our first president, George Washington, was a whiskey drinker, as were Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, Zachary Taylor, and Andrew Johnson.

John Adams reportedly started every morning with a hard cider. William Henry Harrison was also a big fan.

Thomas Jefferson red wine.

James Madison, James Monroe, John Tyler, James K. Polk, and Ulysses S. Grant were all champagne lovers.

John Quincy Adams, Millard Fillmore, and James Buchanan enjoyed Madeira wine.

Franklin Pierce anything. He died of cirrhosis of the liver at the age of 64.

Abraham Lincoln apparently drank the least while in office. Presidents Rutherford B. Hayes, William Howard Taft, Benjamin Harrison, Jimmy Carter and Calvin Coolidge were also light drinkers.

Beer was the drink of choice for James Garfield and Grover Cleveland.

the temperance movement tried to convince Chester A. Arthur to have a dry White House, but he refused.

The McKinley's Delight was coined for President William McKinley. It was a strong drink made with whiskey, sweet vermouth, cherry brandy, and absinthe.

Teddy Roosevelt mint juleps.

Woodrow Wilson and Dwight D. Eisenhower enjoyed scotch.

Warren Harding whiskey.

Herbert Hoover dry martini while Franklin D. Roosevelt was known for loving cocktails, especially gin-based martinis.

Harry S. Truman, bourbon.

John F. Kennedy drank various cocktails, such as daiquiris, but his favorite was the bloody mary.

Lyndon B. Johnson enjoyed cold Texas-brewed Pearl bee

Richard Nixon enjoyed expensive bottles of Château Lafite Rothschild.

Gerald Ford martinis

Ronald Reagan enjoyed Orange Blossom Specials.

George H.W. Bush dabbled in a bit of everything, from beer to vodka. However, his son George W. Bush didn't drink while in office.

Bill Clinton: hard cider mixed with beer.

Obama: beer

Trump doesn't drink."
