Wanna Drink Like A Famous Person This Weekend? Do It As Ruthlessly As Frank Underwood.

Posted: Updated:

Happy Friday! Welcome to Drink Like A Famous Person, where we let you bring out your fabulous side in the name of some well-earned R&R. Eschew your regular habits this weekend by drinking like...

Frank Underwood!


As Kevin Spacey explained in a 1998 interview with the London Evening Standard, "the less you know about me, the easier it is to convince you that I am that character on screen."

Honoring Spacey's desire to become inseparable from his character, we give you devilishly cunning "House of Cards" politico Francis Underwood's beverage of choice: bourbon, neat.

Channel your inner Southern lady or gent with two or three ounces of Blanton's Single-Barrel Bourbon (Underwood's choice liquor) poured into a lowball glass. Room temperature, please. That'll ensure you will be able to taste all the intricate notes of oak and honey that whiskey-drinkers talk about and perhaps you never totally believed?

Take small sips. Savor the experience. Imagine you're sitting in the Oval Office -- the most influential office in the world -- which reminds you how similar power is to real estate. It's all about location, location, location, isn't it? The closer the source, the higher your property value.

Ruminate on some of Underwood's other useful life lessons below.
