  2. Roy, yesterday's "Prohibition Remembrance Day" was for the beginning of Prohibition -- The U.S. Senate proposed the Eighteenth Amendment on December 18, 1917. Upon being approved by a 36th state on January 16, 1919, the amendment was ratified as a part of the Constitution. By the terms of the amendment, the country went dry one year later, on January 17, 1920. Bootleggers came into existence to fill the desires of those who wished to continue the consumption of alcohol. To some extent, the profession continues today.

  11. The Tommy’s Margarita (famed house version from the eponymous restaurant on Geary Street in San Francisco), substituting agave nectar for orange liqueur, accomplishes a rare feat: The variation actually moves the drink to a more foundational archetype.
