Shaking up Martinis and Old Fashioneds with FDR

Another short article on drink by Noah Rothbaum.  FDR mixed drinks for himself, friends, and acquaintances before dinner on a daily basis.  He himself consumed a couple of stiff martinis, not more.  He also stocked plenty of whiskey, gin, and rum during National Prohibition (which prohibited making and selling drink and not imbibing). Stalin did not like the drink that the President mixed for him.
