Drink up!

Even hoppy Dogfish Head beer won’t be enough to get some people through the next bumpy year. And so, the return of Depression-era cocktails:

The industry has seen a resurgence of drinks that hark back to the prewar eras of Prohibition and the Great Depression, such as the Sidecar, the Old Fashioned and the Manhattan.

Let the markets fall, production shrink, and unemployment rise. If it leads to me being able to order a Sidecar and receive it made with something other than ReaLemon, there’s hope for us all.
