I received an email from our friends at Campari featuring some prohibition-era cocktails inspired by the upcoming Boardwalk Empire Premiere on HBO. I’ve seen the show a few times and enjoyed it, but I don’t have HBO now, so I’ll miss the premiere. That doesn’t mean, though, that I won’t give one or two of these cocktail recipes a try. Let us know if you tried them out, and tell us which one was your favorite.
