Chicagoans celebrate the repeal of Prohibition at the Congress Hotel.

Let us raise a glass and celebrate the repeal of Prohibition on December 5th, 1933, 78 years ago on Monday! What shall we drink? Hmm, how about something a little different and unique. Lets us go with...
15% Luxardo Maraschino
35% Orange Juice
Shake over ice & strain, Orange Twist Garnish
The orange juice will be good for those with an early winter cold and for those who are not sick, a great way to trick you into thinking the drink is healthy for you!
I shall enjoy this drink while writing and sending out my holiday cards this weekend. I normally send out my holiday greetings earlier than this, but I've been pretty busy, so they have been delayed. When do you normally send out your holiday cards?
