NEVADA – LEARN HISTORY THROUGH LIBATIONS WITH THE MOB MUSEUM’S PROHIBITION COCKTAIL COLLECTION


LAS VEGAS (July 2018) – The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, is changing the way guests learn about  American history through the tempting cocktail menu offered at The Underground speakeasy. At the helm of the cocktail program for the Museum’s new, comprehensive Prohibition history exhibition is Beverage Director Clint Thoman. His cocktail recipes are inspired by the 1920s and 1930s.  

With concoctions spiked with the Museum’s own house-distilled Moonshine to classics made with vodka, gin, bourbon and rum, Thoman’s menu features items such as the Lock & Key, made with gin, tea, vermouth, blueberries and sugar – served unassumingly in an innocent-looking teacup. Meanwhile, The Underground Old-Fashioned is mixed with bourbon, vanilla bean, brown sugar and bitters and comes clandestinely concealed; guests who order this classic are presented with a rocks glass and a book which, when opened, hides a flask filled with the libation, ready to be poured over ice. Even the presentation of the cocktails plays to Prohibition times.
