1920s Party Drinks: Perfect Prohibition Style Cocktails
I made a French 75 cocktail, and everyone really enjoyed it. I topped mine off with sparkling water, instead of champagne because I didn't want it too be too sweet.
To make a prohibition style cocktail, one must first start with a great small-batch spirits. I'd suggest Tito's vodka. If you haven't already tried it, you're really missing out. Tito's vodka is produced in Austin at Texas’ first and oldest (legal) distillery and made in small batches in an old fashioned pot still.
2 oz Tito's Handmade Vodka
½ oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice
¾ oz simple syrup
Add all ingredients to a shaker. Shake well with cracked ice. Strain into highball glass full of cracked ice. Top off with chilled champagne or sparking water.
Serve those cocktails with 1920s art deco themed Eco friendly paper straws.
