One of the original hellraisers, alongside his pals Richard Harris and Richard Burton, Peter O’Toole was born in Connemara, Ireland, on this day in 1932.
Iconic movies like Lawrence of Arabia and The Last Emperor made him famous, though his partying exploits were just as legendary. O'Toole once went out for a drink in Paris and woke up in Corsica. He advised a young Michael Caine never to ask what he had done the night before, as "it's better not to know". We are toasting this wild Irishman with a Wild Irish Rose, based on his homeland's native whiskey.
