Healthy Mocktails During Prohibition

Wednesday, January 16, 2019

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

On January 16, 1919, Prohibition became the law of the land. We all know what Al Capone and his buddies did for fun, but how did law-abiding citizens have a good time? They improvised!

Join us as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Prohibition with an exploration of 1920s-era “mocktails”—nonalcoholic cocktails—and learn how to mix drinks that taste like the jazz age but don’t pack a punch. 1920s jazz will be playing, non-alcoholic drinks will be available to sample and recipes will be provided.

This program is part of “A Healthy Mind in a Healthy Body”, an initiative between the library and the DeKalb Kiwanis Club to encourage physical, mental, and economic health, as well as sustainable living, through a series of programs, lectures, tours, and activities for people of all ages.

No registration is required to attend this FREE event. Just drop by the library’s secret safe house, say the password, and join our non-alcoholic speakeasy for a roarin’ good time! This program is intended for adults.
