Repeal Day Is Here! Justice Is Served.

I have been recognizing Repeal Day for years.  It seems like it is finally catching on and I have a great new venue at which to celebrate.  Join us at The Humidor Club & Lounge tonight as we celebrate our constitutional right to have a drink!

The 21st Amendment, ratified on December 5th 1933, put an end to Prohibition in the US and gave every citizen of legal age the constitutional right to have a drink. Join the nationwide celebration of the repeal of prohibition with us. Featured beer of the event will be Batch 19 Pre-Prohibition Style Lager.

Celebrate Repeal Day December 5th

 

On December 5, 1933 Prohibition in the United States ended. Join me as I celebrate the passing of the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, giving citizens the right to once again consume beer, liquor, & wine. Even if you can’t join me at the Golden Lion, you can still get into the spirit with these classic cocktails! Since these are classics, there exist many variations. These are the recipes I use.

 

Classic Martini
2 oz gin
1/4 oz dry vermouth
Fill a cocktail glass with shaved ice and water to chill. Pour ingredients into a shaker or mixing glass half filled with ice. Using a long handled bar spoon and a fast motion, stir 5o times. Dump ice out of glass and strain contents of shaker into prepared glass. Garnish with one or two olives.

Manhattan
2 oz bourbon whiskey
1/2 oz sweet vermouth
Fill a cocktail glass with shaved ice and water to chill. Pour ingredients into a shaker or mixing glass half filled with ice. Using a long handled bar spoon and a fast motion, stir 5o times. Dump ice out of glass and strain contents of shaker into prepared glass. Drop a cherry into the glass.

Sidecar
1 1/2 oz brandy
1/2 oz triple sec
1/2 oz lemon juice
Fill a cocktail glass with shaved ice and water to chill. Pour ingredients into a shaker or mixing glass half filled with ice. Shake vigorously. Dump ice out of glass and strain contents of shaker into prepared glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Ward Eight
2 oz blended whiskey
1 tsp grenadine
1 tsp powdered sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon
orange slice
maraschino cherry
Shake first four ingredients with ice. Strain into a highball glass filled with ice. Garnish with orange and cherry.

Presbyterian
1 1/2 oz bourbon whiskey
club soda
ginger-ale
lemon peel
Pour whiskey and equal parts of soda and ginger-ale over ice in a highball glass. Give a quick stir and drop in a lemon peel.

Chicago Cocktail
2 oz brandy
1 tsp triple sec
1 dash bitters
Rim an old-fashioned glass with lemon and dip into powdered sugar. Pour ingredients into a shaker or mixing glass half filled with ice. Stir well and strain contents of shaker into prepared glass.

Wherever you are, lift a glass to liberty!
