Boardwalk Empire Teams With London Speakeasy For Prohibition Cocktails


Boardwalk Empire S5 02Coming from Sopranos’ writer Terence Winter, HBO’s impressive gangster series Boardwalk Empire (produced by industry heavyweights Martin Scorsese and Mark Wahlberg) first shot its way onto the small screen back in 2010 and now, celebrating the release of the show’s fifth and final season on Blu-ray and DVD on Monday January 12th, London’s premier cocktail bar PURL has crafted a brand new, prohibition inspired mocktail menu.

PURL’s top mixologist has crafted a brand new Mocktail Menu, inspired by the prohibition-era of the show, which would be perfect for anyone living in the USA during prohibition times, or even working their way through a dry January in 2015, as they’re completely alcohol free.

The Mocktail Menu will be available to sample, in Marylebone’s best speakeasy bar (PURL) from Monday January 12th (Boardwalk Empire Season 5 release day), with each of the delicious drinks will remaining available for the entire month of January. If you fancy making them yourself you can also try your hand at the recipes for the Big 7 Break, and Empty Gun below.
