Repeal Day

Imagine not being able to drink a cocktail (legally) for thirteen years... the 18th Amendment to the United States Constitution, mandated nationwide Prohibition on alcohol on January 17, 1920.

 Those dark years finally came to an end on Repeal Day, December 5, 1933 with the passing of the 21st Amendment which revoked the very unpopular 18th Amendment.

 And the celebration lives on. After all, being able to enjoy a cocktail is a freedom not to be taken lightly. Not then. Not now.

So pick your drink and give a toast!

Oh and look at this (hint it would make a great Christmas gift for one or more of your usual suspects)
