Celebrating the Anniversary of the Repeal of Prohibition

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I celebrated at Catherine Lombardi's in NJ....they had a 33% off special on "Drinks of the Past", so naturally we had.....all of them.

Stork Club


Clover Club

(real) Pink Lady


(split up of course...between the two of us!)

Had an old fashioned, then a fellow eGulleter stopped in, brought in some tangerines and had the bartender make up a cocktail.

Repeal Day is December 5, and this year I'm working at the bar for the night. I'm trying to line up a few candidates for appropriate libations and would love to know what you'll be shaking and stirring.

Quite sure the 12 Mile Limit will be on the card:

1 oz white rum

1/2 oz rye

1/2 oz brandy

1/2 oz grenadine

1/2 oz lemon juice

lemon twist

Hey, let's not forget one of the biggest winner's of the Prohibtion era was the Kennedy Family. Then when it was repealed they still received $1 for every bottle of White Label sold (through the old Chicago Mart) - and that money eventually purchased a presidency (re: Illinois). See what a bottle of Scotch can do to your mind and body.

If one reads Daniel Okrents book about prohibition one would see that he dispells the rumor of the Kennedy family being major bootleggers. He says it is the single biggest myth about prohibition and he spent lots of time investegating it.
