In vino veritas
It means “in wine lies the truth” and suggests the idea that we are a more true, honest, and revealing version of ourselves when intoxicated.
It makes one wonder if friends who are self-described “monsters” when they drink are underneath not very great people.
Or why those who are really loving and appreciative when they drink have a hard time showing affection when they’re sober.
Regardless of the answer, the saying calls on us to pay close attention.
