Contraband Cocktails

What the country drank when it couldn't.

Despite the outlawing of liquor during Prohibition, many of your ancestral countryman still managed to skirt the law and imbibe fine wine, beer, and of course, cocktails. This book covers the birth of cocktail culture during a time when making drinks was harder than ever. Explore smoky jazz clubs from the 1920's, secret shipments to the Capitol Hill, and the origin of some of your favorite drinks, like the Bloody Mary. Try your hand at one of the dozens of recipes included, some by the likes of Ernest Hemingway and F.D.R.
