Discover the evolution of the cocktail, a uniquely American institution, with North Shore Distillery. Please register.
From Colonial times, Americans have enjoyed their alcoholic beverages, and the cocktail is a uniquely American institution. Most of the tools, techniques and combinations used in classic cocktails were invented by American bartenders, who were celebrities in their day. That is, until we embarked on the "noble experiment" of Prohibition. We didn't stop drinking, but Prohibition affected our drinking options and preferences massively. Cocktails have ebbed and flowed as part of our culture since then, and classic cocktails are extremely popular again. This presentation will cover the evolution of the cocktail from its beginnings, through its rough patches, to the the current cocktail renaissance.
