What you'll learn in this museum class:

Raise a glass to Prohibition in New York City in a conversation and small batch rum tasting inspired by the lasting legacy of this now legendary period.

One hundred years ago this January, Prohibition was passed into law with the now infamous 18th Amendment that barred the “manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors for beverage purposes.” To mark the centennial of this failed social experiment, cocktail historian Dave Wondrich, Drinks Correspondent for The Daily Beast, sits down with food and culture editor Ariel Lauren Wilson to revisit this unprecedented effort to restrict one of America’s favorite pastimes, drinking. They will be joined by Bridget Firtle, founder and head distiller of Brooklyn's own Prohibition-inspired Owney's Rum, and Karl Franz Williams, owner of 67 Orange Street, a speakeasy-inspired cocktail bar in Harlem.

Prior to the program, join us for happy hour and, afterwards, sample a Prohibition-era cocktail made with Owney's Rum, which pays homage to the style commonly enjoyed in New York City speakeasies during the period.
