The Last Word Cocktail

The Last Word is one of the most representative Prohibition-era cocktails, because it is based on gin, which was one of the types of alcohol most easily found; this is because it was easy to cook at home, in the bathtub, a habit many people took to at that time.

The Aviation Cocktail

The Aviation cocktail was invented by a head bartender, Hugo Ensslin and, while it has nothing to do with actual aviation, its name might stem from the effects it has on the drinker; what makes this mixed drink so special is the addition of the rare and special creme de violette.
