February 24th: Bootleggers, Bathtubs, and Speakeasies: Cocktails At The Smithsonian

(original post www.smithsonianassociates.org)

Prohibition? What Prohibition? Americans who wanted to get a drink during the “dry” Roaring Twenties didn’t have to work too hard to wet their whistle. Savvy drinkers knew which door to knock on and which doorman to tip. Often, that might well include a city’s top politicians and maybe even a police chief or two.

Join two co-founders of the Museum of the American Cocktail, cocktail historian Philip Greene and Dale Degroff, author of The Craft of the Cocktail, for a fun and informative look at America’s not-so-dry era when the “Noble Experiment” could turn law-abiding citizens into scofflaws.

This evening, taste such iconic favorites as the Rum Runner, Three Mile Limit, Orange Blossom, and the Scofflaw. Go ahead…it’s perfectly legal.

William Grant & Sons are providing cocktail products.
