Alexander The Great Enjoyed His Wine In A Unique Way
Alexander the Great was a fan of drinking wine undiluted, which may not sound strange to modern ears, but was an exception to the rule back then when wine was often cut with water.
In general, wine was enjoyed with water in a one-to-three ratio, particularly by the Greeks, who disdained drinking to excess and used it to mask the flavor of poor-quality water.
In contrast, the nearby Macedonians, like Alexander the Great, enjoyed his wine pure and unadulterated, basking in the full effects of the undiluted drink.
