Prohibit This!


Today is the 75th anniversary of the end of Prohibition. To celebrate the repeal of what could arguably be called the silliest Constitutional amendment in American history, Michael Lerner, author of Dry Manhattan and Associate Dean of Studies at New York's Bard High School Early College, visits the GOOD Newsroom for a historical look at the United States' 13 years of teetotalism. (And who's that dapper mixologist in Ye Olde GOODE News Pub? Why, it's Floyd of Brooklyn's Weather Up, mixing up America's first cocktail, the Sazerac. Check out the full tutorial here.)
