A Rebirth

Prohibition made criminals of millions of Americans. Discouraged from going to bars, people became accustomed to drinking and entertaining at home, and now that prohibition was over, it took some time for people to get back in the swing of things. Premixed drinks and powders are all the rage, allowing people to quickly make their own cocktails at home! At first, sweet drinks and those made with cream, like the Brandy Alexander, are most popular because they cut the harshness of the bootlegged alcohol. Movies, like The Thin Man, began showing drinking alcohol as a sign of sophistication, further bringing drinking culture back to its original glory.
