How to Drink Like a Gentleman

Mr Mencken observed that “[d]rinking with skill and taste is no more a natural art than love; either it must be learned by the onerous procĀ­ess of trial and error, or it must be taught. Plainly enough, the latter way is the better” and offered a short tutorial which appeared in Liberty magazine of January 12, 1935. The website Gawker has reproduced Mr Mencken’s essay, “How To Drink Like a Gentleman”, and we draw the attention of the ombibulous to it.
