Prohibition Part 1 Podcast!

Prohibition

Hello fellow Bourbon Evangelists! We’re back, finally, and hopefully better than ever! In this cast we take on the first part of Prohibition from Post-Revolutionary America to the ratification of the 18th Amendment. Darren will talk about all his excellent information from the Great American Whiskey Fair in Columbia, SC. Then we also have a tasting to compare some of the recent label changes from Buffalo Trace, as well as our usual news, Cocktail of the Day, Bottom Shelf Bourbon of the Day, 2/2 MDs agree and general ridiculousness. It went a little longer than usual, but we hope you enjoy it! As always, let us know what you think!

Cocktail of the Day Recipe: The Whiskey Sour

whiskey sour

2oz Bourbon – I used charter 101, high proof is good

½ lemon, juiced

2 tsps sugar (if you have super fine, use less, I dont, so there) or 1/2 oz simple syrup

½ egg white

splash water (because sugar doesn’t dissolve easily into ETOH)

Shake for 20 seconds

Garnish with lemon twist, maraschino cherry and few splashes orange bitters on the froth. You can serve on ice as I prefer, or in a chilled glass to be more traditional.
