More about this list

Step back in time to the roaring 1920s, an era of jazz, flappers, and clandestine speakeasies, with our exclusive collection of Prohibition cocktails. These drinks aren’t just cocktails; they are a revival of a thrilling chapter in history, served up in a glass. During Prohibition, when the United States banned alcoholic beverages, an underground world of illicit bars emerged, giving rise to some of the most iconic cocktails we know today. Our collection is a tribute to that era's spirit of defiance and innovation.

Imagine sipping a classic Sidecar, a cocktail born in the speakeasy culture, known for its perfect balance of brandy, lemon juice, and triple sec. Or, take a daring sip of the Mary Pickford, a sweet blend of rum and pineapple juice, named after the silent film starlet of the era. These drinks are more than just a blend of ingredients; they are stories from a bygone era, served up with a twist of rebellion and a dash of mystery.

Delve into the world of moonshine and bathtub gin with our Prohibition cocktails. Each drink is carefully crafted to evoke the ambiance of a 1920s speakeasy, where secrecy added to the allure of every sip. From the Bee's Knees, a gin cocktail sweetened with honey to mask the harshness of homemade spirits, to the timeless French 75, a bubbly and bright concoction, these drinks encapsulate the resourcefulness and resilience of an era.

Our Prohibition cocktail list is not just a menu; it's a portal to the past. As you explore these historic concoctions, you’re not just enjoying a drink—you're toasting to history, to the legends who crafted them, and to the enduring legacy of an era that forever changed the world of cocktails. So, raise a glass, whisper the password, and let's celebrate the enduring spirit of the Roaring Twenties.
