Christopher Hitchens
“Hitch: making rules about drinking can be the sign of an alcoholic,' as Martin Amis once teasingly said to me. (Adorno would have savored that, as well.) Of course, watching the clock for the start-time is probably a bad sign, but here are some simple pieces of advice for the young. Don't drink on an empty stomach: the main point of the refreshment is the enhancement of food. Don't drink if you have the blues: it's a junk cure. Drink when you are in a good mood. Cheap booze is a false economy. It's not true that you shouldn't drink alone: these can be the happiest glasses you ever drain. Hangovers are another bad sign, and you should not expect to be believed if you take refuge in saying you can't properly remember last night. (If you really don't remember, that's an even worse sign.) Avoid all narcotics: these make you more boring rather than less and are not designed—as are the grape and the grain—to enliven company. Be careful about up-grading too far to single malt Scotch: when you are voyaging in rough countries it won't be easily available. Never even think about driving a car if you have taken a drop. It's much worse to see a woman drunk than a man: I don't know quite why this is true but it just is. Don't ever be responsible for it.”

Puja Upadhyay
“पहली बार व्हिस्की उठा कर होठों तक लायी थी तो वही वनगंध साँसों में भर गयी थी. जबां पर सिंगल माल्ट का पहला स्वाद पहली बार चूमने की तरह था, अतुलनीय. याद का दहकता जंगल मुझे अपने आगोश में भर रहा था, हौले हौले, शायद वो अपनी बाहें कस कर मुझे तोड़ डालता. यक़ीनन, मुझे अफ़सोस न होता. पैरों के पास कोई खुशबूदार बेल उग रही थी और महसूस हो रहा था कि हर छोटे सिप के साथ मैं दार्जलिंग का वही जंगल होती जा रही हूँ कि जिसके बादलों में भीगे तने पर कोई अजनबी अपने होठ रखने की हसरत लिए हर साल लौट आना चाहेगा. चाहने और लौट आने के बीच उलझा हुआ शामें सिंगल माल्ट में डुबो कर आग लगाता रहेगा.”
