Despite the prevailing notion that prohibition was unsuccessful, it did manage to achieve a 50% reduction in overall alcohol consumption throughout the 1920s.

National Repeal Day Events and Activities
Host a social gathering at a nearby speakeasy.
In cities throughout the country, many former speakeasies have since been transformed into regular bars; therefore, you can reserve one and hold a 1920s-themed party for your friends without fear of the police showing up, unless the situation truly spirals out of control.
Consider attempting a novel cocktail.
We have just enumerated seven cocktails: Moscow Mules, Margaritas, Martinis, Manhattans, Daiquiris, Negronis, and Old Fashioneds. Those seven drinks should be sufficient to fuel even a reasonably robust horse for the evening. Therefore, why remain in a routine when there are so many intriguing combinations to experiment with?
Remember to bring mocktails!
It’s acceptable that not everyone consumes alcoholic beverages. There is a growing community of cocktail professionals who are acquiring the skill of mocktailmaking. Whether you are the designated driver or simply limiting your consumption for any reason, we strongly urge you to sample some of the incredible flavor combinations available on the non-alcoholic section of the menu. In particular, when the hour is lilting and you are debating the viability of having one more drink!
