This chapter examines the shifting associations of alcohol with ethical and political order in gastronomic literature from around the third century CE. By analysing in details the writings of Ruan Ji, Liu Ling, Yu Chan, Tao Qian, and others, it endeavours to show a unique appreciation for both the physical enjoyment and symbolic meaning of alcohol.
