New Years Eve, my hubby and I attended a party at a local bar. The party was, of course, a roaring twenties theme. Since starting Cocktail Crafty I have attended more 1920’s themed parties than I can count. My husband pointed this out and asked why do bartenders love to celebrate Prohibition. “You would think”, he says, “this would be considered a dark era in drinking history.” In theory, perhaps, but in reality Prohibition was anything but.
A friend of mine had such an epic New Year's Eve, they've decided to take a break from alcohol. For a whole month! I struggled to comprehend as they explained their reason for going 31 days without cocktails, without wine, not even a single beer. You mean, no Manhattan after hard day at the office? Dinner with Mom without the Pinot? Gasp, no Negronis...for a month!
