Are you ready to raise a glass and celebrate Bootlegger's Day? This annual holiday celebrated on January 17th, honours the rebellious individuals who defied Prohibition by illegally producing and selling alcohol. It's a day to pay tribute to the resourcefulness and bravery of the bootleggers and to celebrate the end of Prohibition.
During the Prohibition era (1920-1933), the sale, manufacture, and transportation of alcohol was illegal in the United States. This led to the rise of underground networks of people who produced and sold alcohol illegally, known as bootleggers. These individuals were often seen as rebels and outlaws, and their illicit activities helped fuel the rise of organized crime.
Go celebrate Bootlegger's Day at your local bar or pub? Try a classic cocktail from the Prohibition era, such as a martini or a Manhattan.
