I’ve always dreamed of transporting myself back to the Golden Age, the wacky, wonderful era filled with

The Bees Knees!

flappers, fabulous fashion and scandalous tales of infamous NYC women like Tex Guinan. I’d dance the black bottom, canoodle with Rum runners and live the high life while sipping illicit liquors in dimly lit clubs filled with jazz musicians, slick gangster types and party girls! Well, this season I’ve planned a series of  Prohibition Era Cocktail Cruise events to combine my love of the 1920s, NYC speakeasy tales and vintage cocktails!

Inspired by classic cocktail recipes I’ll be crafting modern variations with a twist from the freshest juices, artisan spirits and a selection of flavored simple syrups made in my kitchen! Held aboard Classic Harbor Line’s 1920s inspired motor yacht Manhattan this is sure to be a great event!
