Now for a mini history lesson for you. During Prohibition, the sale of alcohol was prohibited, which led to the creation of the speakeasy. These underground bars sold bootleg and illegal liquor to the people of the roaring 20s. Today's featured drink, Ward 8 was popular for it masked the harshness of the bootleg rye whiskey. Try it for yourself (those that are 21 and over of course).
