It's hard to believe that the Roaring 20s were almost 100 years ago! This decade marked an important time in history in so many ways: the end of the first World War, the beginning of female independence, and jazz!

These bartenders have the perfect 20s look! Alcohol was actually illegal in the US during this era, but that never stopped people from having a good time. Try some classic cocktails like "Hanky Panky," "Royal Hawaiian," and "Mimosa"! And don't forget costume details like a newsboy cap or jewelry.
