Madirāpāna (मदिरापान) refers to one who “indulges in drinking wine”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.26. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] censured and rebuked thus by Nandin, Dakṣa the patriarch who was still furious cursed Nandin too. Dakṣa said:—‘[...] You all will be confirmed heretics, out of the conventions of society. You will indulge in drinking wine (madirāpāna). Matted hair, ashes and bones will be your embellishments’”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.

He eats food of sour milk and smears a white garment. [He holds] a white umbrella over his head, decorates [himself] with a white garland or ribbon. [He sees] a throne, chariot or vehicle, the flag of royal initiation. He decorates [these things] with a coral, betel leaf fruit. [He also] sees Śrī or Sarasvatī”.
