Tom Robbins
“Now tequila may be the favored beverage of outlaws but that doesn't mean it gives them preferential treatment. In fact, tequila probably has betrayed as many outlaws as has the central nervous system and dissatisfied wives. Tequila, scorpion honey, harsh dew of the doglands, essence of Aztec, crema de cacti; tequila, oily and thermal like the sun in solution; tequila, liquid geometry of passion; Tequila, the buzzard god who copulates in midair with the ascending souls of dying virgins; tequila, firebug in the house of good taste; O tequila, savage water of sorcery, what confusion and mischief your sly, rebellious drops do generate!”
Tom Robbins, Still Life with Woodpecker

James Joyce

“What about the whiskey?" Jack said as they ran. "Won't it keep them out?"
The Green Maidens don't drink anything but blood." Bob's disembodied voice floated after them. "The whiskey magick won't affect them."
Wonderful," the old actor muttered, a tremor of fear in his voice. "I should've poured a Bloody Mary.”
Lesley Livingston, Darklight

James C. Dobson
“26. Don’t marry someone with intolerable characteristics in the hopes of changing him or her. If you can’t live with someone who drinks or someone who isn’t a Christian or someone who isn’t clean, then don’t marry that kind of person. The chances for miraculous improvements or changes in behavior are slim. What you see is what you get!”
James C. Dobson, Life on the Edge: The Next Generation's Guide to a Meaningful Future

Rory Sutherland
“Ever since, in the U.K. they banned smoking in public places, I've never enjoyed a drinks party ever again. And the reason, I only worked out just the other day, is when you go to a drinks party and you stand up and you hold a glass of red wine and you talk endlessly to people, you don't actually want to spend all the time talking. It's really, really tiring. Sometimes you just want to stand there silently, alone with your thoughts. Sometimes you just want to stand in the corner and stare out of the window. Now the problem is, when you can't smoke, if you stand and stare out of the window on your own, you're an antisocial, friendless idiot. If you stand and stare out of the window on your own with a cigarette, you're a fucking philosopher.”
Rory Sutherland

Kamand Kojouri
“The lover drinks
and the cup-bearer pours.
The lover thinks
but the cup-bearer knows:
love begets love.
Since this wine is love,
then this cup is love,
then this tavern is love,
then this life is love.”
Kamand Kojouri

“I never will suggest you to drink energy drinks, they taste like hell!”
Deyth Banger

“Понимаете, бутылка хорошего вина предусматривает хороший разговор. Люди сидят за столиком и разговаривают, и тут одно дополняет другое – без хорошего разговора вино не доставляет удовольствия. А американцы не любят и не умеют разговаривать. Вы заметили? Они никогда не засиживаются за столом. Им не о чем говорить. Они танцуют или играют в бридж. И предпочитают виски. Выпил три стопки – и сразу опьянел. Так что и разговаривать незачем. Да, да, да, сэры, американцы не пьют вина.”
Илья Ильф, Ilf and Petrov's American Road Trip: The 1935 Travelogue of Two Soviet Writers

Suzanne Selfors
“It was late afternoon, and classes were over for the day. Apple and Briar Beauty had walked to the Village of Book End to treat themselves to something yummy. They sat on a bench beneath a weeping willow. The songbirds that often followed Apple were perched in the willow's branches, chirping their lovely melody. Apple sipped on an apple fizz she'd purchased from the Hocus Latte Cafe. Briar had chosen a mocha hocus latte.”
Suzanne Selfors, Once Upon A Pet : A Collection of Little Pet Stories

Jenny Nelson, Georgia's Kitchen

Mandy Ashcraft
“This drink is an Elixandria. It's named after our sun, that's why it's this nice orange color. The brown liquid on top is dark rum, and we pour it over to represent a setting sun. Little bit of rum? 'Dawn'. Little more rum? 'Dusk'. You looking to get drunk? 'Dark'.”
Mandy Ashcraft, Small Orange Fruit

“I discovered my B12 deficiency accidentally while experimenting with energy drinks, because I was fed up with being fatigued, sleepy and showing symptoms consistent with Dementia all the time. I bought a variety of energy drinks and the only one that I exhibited a positive response to was the one with a huge dose of vitamin B12.”
Steven Magee

Katherine McIntyre
“Bourbon’s on the sweeter side, which by the way you massacre your coffee it’s clear you like. You’re careful about your appearance, meticulous, so no time for extravagant or ridiculous ingredients. Besides, the Old Fashioned is a classic with wide appeal.” Grif leaned back, placing his arms on either side of the booth.
“Cheater,” Dan responded, the grin reaching his eyes. “Was your next choice a rum and Coke?”
Grif snorted. “You’ve got way too much class to be a rum and Coke.”
Katherine McIntyre, Midnight Heist

Jonas Jonasson
“And now we shall each take a glass.’
‘Sounds good, said Allan. ‘The sea air tires you out.’
After the very first glass, Allan insisted on a change in the way the two men addressed each other. To say Yury Borisovich to Yury Borisovich every time he needed to attract Yury Borisovich’s attention just wasn’t practical in the long term.”
Jonas Jonasson
