The Southside, Diamondback and the Preakness - Marylanders imbibe history in their native cocktails, from local favorites to little-known classics. Early residents favored fruit brandies and potent punches until the Civil War, when rye whiskey laid claim to local palates. During the golden age of the cocktail, grand hotels like Baltimore's Belvedere created smooth concoctions such as the Frozen Rye, but the dry days of Prohibition interrupted the good times. Using historic recipes with modern twists from renowned mixologists, Greg and Nicole Priebe mix up one part practical guide and three parts Maryland history and top it off with a tour of the current craft cocktail and distilling scenes.

Lifelong Marylanders, Gregory and Nicole Priebe are the “alcohologists” behind “A History of Drinking,” the cocktail blog that pairs random and often obscure historical events with appropriate cocktails. Active in the national and online cocktail communities since 2009, they have created custom cocktails for Hiram Walker, Crown Royal and many other brands. When they aren't immersed in the spirit-world, Gregory is an instructional designer for Harford Community College and Nicole works in finance.
