1920's Drink Recipes

Prohibition began in 1920. A Speakeasy was the only place to get a decent drink, and no respectable Flapper would be seen without her flask neatly tied to her leg. Most cocktails only masked the taste of inferior booze. Fruit was added to the standard Old Fashioned at this time just for this purpose. Though the Mint Julep dates back before the 1800's, F. Scott Fitzgerald gave the drink a popularity boost in his 1925 novel, The Great Gatsby.
