Welcome back to Day 2 of the Wildwood Speakeasy New Year’s Eve party! How did you guys do on that Vintage Floral Inspired Centerpiece Laura from Avery Street Design created? It was seriously breathtaking! I can’t wait to make one of my own. So lovely and whimsical. Tomorrow Grace from The Big Reveal is up, but first, I’m going to show you how to make a little signature cocktail for this shindig. Here is the Poor Liza Cocktail Recipe.
On January 16, 1920, the 18th Amendment passed. Otherwise known as Prohibition. Did they really think people would stop drinking? BAHAHAHA…ya, no. Potions were mixed combining spirits, juices, syrups and a couple dashes of this or that. People found innovative ways to consume alcohol and speakeasys started popping up everywhere. Secret places, anywhere from basements to abandoned buildings had back entrances, secret passwords, special knocks and membership cards. Booze was limited and bartenders created cocktail recipes that have stood the test of time. Clearly they took their potions seriously.
