Prohibition Cocktails for Boardwalk Empire


Updated December 5, 2015

NO ONE GOES QUIETLY!

I was a huge fan of Boardwalk Empire and, like all other fans, truly enjoyed this great HBO series. I never missed an episode, not the first or second time HBO brought it to life. It's a favorite binge series of mine.

How could a cocktail lover not adore a series that featured booze and Prohibition as major characters? Not to mention the great Steve Buscemi as the anti-hero, Enoch "Nucky" Thompson.

In honor of the series I put together a list of some of the more obscure Prohibition era cocktails to toast to a little more Nucky and a lot more Atlantic City antics. I'm now hoping for a third go-round or a movie.

Be warned, like many speakeasy concoctions, Nucky and the era itself, these are quietly dangerous. Now grab your vintage cocktail shaker, add ice and shake.
