Tammy Coxen will discuss the cultural and political forces that led America to enact Prohibition and about the alcoholic drinks that were created and consumed during that time period, both in America and globally as a consequence of American bartenders leaving to work elsewhere. She will also talk about how Prohibition ended with the repeal of the 18th amendment on December 5, 1933.

Tammy Coxen is the Chief Tasting Officer for Tammy's Tastings and has been teaching cocktail classes for over 10 years, including over 600 online classes since the Covid-19 pandemic began. She is the co-author of the cocktail book Cheers to Michigan, co-host of a regular cocktail segment on Michigan Radio, and the author of a monthly column for Hour Detroit magazine.

This event is in partnership with Culinary Historians of Ann Arbor.
