Is there a comic book character with a signature alcoholic beverage?

To clarify: I'm not looking for cocktails that have been invented by bartenders as a tribute to a comic book character, but instances in comics where a character has a typical drink that they order.
Something like Jean-Luc Picard's "Tea, Earl Grey, Hot" or the Ninja Turtles' fixation on pizza, but with liquor.
This is for a verbal joke that will appear in a webisode I'm shooting this weekend, so it should be something that doesn't rely on a prop and which can actually be said by an actor. (I was tempted to go more sci fi with the joke and do something about Pan Galactic Gargle-Blasters, but it just seemed like too clunky a line.)
It's ok if it's an extremely obscure fact, like Bruce Wayne ordering a Tom Collins in one issue, decades ago.
I would also accept suggestions from other aspects of geek culture like sci fi or video games. Anime/Manga probably won't work, though.
I have seen the "Trademark Favorite Food" TV Tropes article, but nothing in there really did it for me.
