Overview


Raise a glass to prohibition!

To drink... Ten million people in the United States are dependent on the sale and consumption of alcohol to make a living. --Philadelphia Sunday Dispatch, 1917

Or not to drink... In 1911, 75 to 90 percent of the divorces were traceable to drink. --Wiley J. Phillips, chairman of the National Committee on the White Slave Traffic, 1911

To Drink or Not to Drink is the classic enabler for anyone looking to soak up a bit of history as they mix any one of 100 authentic Prohibition-era cocktails. Spilling over with nonsequitur statistics without citations and unabashedly biased expert opinions of quacks and politicians, these arguments were all actually employed to sway people to or from the demon drink. But you shouldn't let the "facts" cloud your judgment; the liquor can do that all on its own.
