Golden Age Cocktails

What’s old is new again! Classic cocktails are undergoing a modern revival. The Prohibition era first popularized the use of flavorings and white spirits, like gin, which provide the basis for many classics. Building on this experimentation, the end of Prohibition ushered in a golden age of cocktails. In these classics, look for a variety of tastes, with emphasis on the subtle interplay of base spirits, liqueurs and bitters. Enjoy—and please mix responsibly!
