Is Lord Shiva an alcoholic?

In the hindu scriptures, Shiva is described to be someone who enjoys his meat and his alcohol. He is smeared with ashes from the dead and is considered the destroyer while Vishnu is the creator.

Does Shiva drink wine?

Shiva's fondness for meat is further emphasised when Jarasandha, a devotee of Shiva, keeps kings as captives only to kill them and offer their flesh to Shiva. Shiva's meat-eating habits find a clear voice in the Vedas as well as the Puranas, but his association with wine-drinking seems a later appendage.
