The Pre-prohibition Cocktail can also be referred to as a sling, toddy, cup and julep depending and which ingredients are used to highlight the spirit. Characteristically, this traditional American drink is spirit forward. As such, the spirit is “front stage and center” and only accented with a moderate amount of sweetness, aromatics and sometimes citrus and bitters. The role of the non-spirit ingredients of the cocktail is to subdue the harshness of the alcohol while still allowing the true essence of the spirit to come through. If you like what is often served as a typical Old-Fashioned, Martini, or the Negroni, you'll love Drunken Fig cocktails because they are made the right way - in their true Pre-Prohibition form.
