Prohibition Cocktail

Mix drink recipe and review for a Prohibition Cocktail with gin and brandy.

Prohibition Cocktail

Prohibition Cocktail – On this date back in 1881 Kansas went dry… the first state to initiate prohibition.  The rest of the country followed suite in 1920… fortunately they came to their senses in 1933 but unfortunately the only thing prohibition really did was create organized crime.  Maybe someday they’ll do the same for some other prohibited substances…

How to rebel with a Prohibition Cocktail:

  • 2 oz gin
  • 2 oz white wine
  • 1/2 tsp apricot brandy
  • 1 tsp orange juice
  • 1 lemon twist (I used lemon juice)

Drink Tip: Get a clothespin for your nose, this is some potent s#*!

Edith’s Fizz

Edith's Fizz

Edith's Fizz

Edith’s Fizz – How I imagine this going down…

Archie – “Edith get me a beer will ya?”
Edith – “Oh, here ya go Archie!”
Archie –“Aw jeeze Edith this ain’t a beer.”
Edith – “I know Archie, I made it myself, I call it an Edith Fizz.”
Archie – “More like a Dingbat Fizz!

Head to the kitchen and mix up your own:

  • 1½ oz white wine
  • ½ oz maraschino Liqueur
  • 4 oz orange juice
  • 2 oz soda water

Drink Tip: With only a little bit of maraschino liqueur and white wine, there isn’t enough alcohol in this drink to get a fly buzzing… but since you already opened a whole bottle of wine and only used 1½ ounces to make this drink… no reason to let the rest go to waste!
