‘And I recommend you the same prescription …
Let me prepare it for you, if I may …
Strong … but sip it slowly … and drink it sitting down.
Breathe deeply, and adopt a relaxed position’

– Gin and water in The Cocktail Party, Act 1, Scene 1

‘EDWARD: Well, I hoped that you would drink a final glass with me.
CELIA: What should we drink to?
EDWARD:                                         Whom shall we drink to?
CELIA: To the Guardians.
EDWARD:                            To the Guardians?
CELIA: To the Guardians. It was you who spoke of guardians.’
