I received an email from our friends over 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 at this time so I’ll be missing 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 try them out and make sure to tell us which one was your favorite.
