    Today is the 79th Anniversary.....

    .....of the repeal of the 18th amendment to our Constitution, aka the Volstead Act, which made alcohol illegal, and would eventually lead to a fantastic television show on HBO called Boardwalk Empire.
    Cheers to that!

    1oz Dry Vermouth
    3/4oz Lemon juice
    .5oz Grenadine
    orange bitters

    Shake
