Prohibition To Host “Seal The 18th Deal” Celebration With Prohibition-Era Cocktails Straight From 1900s Historical Recipe Book

Prohibition, GBOD Hospitality Group’s popular speakeasy in the Gaslamp Quarter, will host a weekend-long celebration to commemorate all things Prohibition: the 100th Anniversary of the first day of Prohibition; legendary gangster, Al Capone’s birthday; and featured cocktail recipes that date back to the early 1900s.

GBOD Hospitality Group beverage director and Prohibition’s lead bartender, Ryan Andrews, will feature a specially curated menu of eight cocktails, with recipes adapted from an antique cocktail book by Charles Smith, “Multum in Parvo” Smiles and Smacks or How to Mix Fancy Drinks. The book comes from a long-time bartender who worked at various speakeasys that were frequented by Al Capone in Chicago. It will be on display throughout the weekend to give guests the chance to learn about the history behind the cocktails.
