Today marks the 80thanniversary of Prohibition’s repeal, and to celebrate our right to openly raise a glass, we checked in with bartender, writer and keeper of repealday.org, Jeffrey Morgenthaler, for five of his favorite toast-worthy tipples—here are his picks:
Scofflaw. “The Scofflaw is a no-brainer—it was created pretty much by Prohibition.” Mary Pickford and theBacardi Cocktail. “I think of these two as quintessential drinks made with white rum smuggled into the country during Prohibition.” French 75. “The French 75 is just that perfect expatriate drink.” Manhattan. “I always think of Manhattans when I think of Prohibition.” And now, so will we.
