365: Day 22 – Happy Repeal Day!

Seventy-eight years ago today, the 21st Amendment was ratified, officially ending Prohibition.

So, in honor of that, here is a shot of a pre-prohibition cocktail, a Rob Roy. The classic recipe consists of Scotch whiskey, sweet vermouth, and angostura bitters. And like a Manhattan, it can be served “dry” using dry vermouth or “perfect” using equal amounts of dry and sweet vermouth.

“Happy days are here again…” :-)
