Past Presidents’ Go-To Drinks

Our Founding Fathers really knew their way around booze, and thanks to Brian Abram’s new book “Party Like a President,” you can now make the same concoctions George Washington and Ulysses S Grant were sipping. Vanity Fair took the recipes to Leo Robitschek, the bar director of the Nomad and Eleven Madison Park, to whip up some of the past presidents’ favorites like FDR’s controversial “Haitian Libation,” Eisenhower’s Eggnog and Truman’s take on the Old Fashioned—which is pretty much just bourbon on the rocks.
