Please join us at Rancho Los Alamitos on Saturday, August 5th for cocktails with 1920s rancher Fred H. Bixby and his lovely wife Florence Green Bixby. While at the ranch, learn HOW PROHIBITION CHANGED AMERICA from our illustrious guest speaker, culinary historian RICHARD FOSS.

The evening will kick off with your host and hostess welcoming you with Fred H. Bixby’s signature whisky punch and a light alfresco supper. Dinner will be followed by a lively and informative presentation by guest speaker Richard Foss on cocktails, epicurean tastes of the ‘20s, and the policies and politics behind Prohibition and the Volstead Act. The presentation will be punctuated with tastes of Prohibition era cocktails and spirits to illustrate salient points.

A Q&A will follow the presentation accompanied by coffee and dessert.
