Celebrate Repeal Day with These Cocktails

Today is Repeal Day, the anniversary of the end of Prohibition in 1933. Celebrate with some of L.A's best cocktails, both vintage and newfangled. Classic drinks are all the rage right now - daiquiris are a respectable order again now that the latter-day coconut creme addition has been 86'ed from the mix - but some of them are made in ways our bootlegging forebears could never have imagined. Care for a little float of liquid nitrogen?
