History Happy Hour returns to study the early 20th Century, plus booze

Posted

The latest installment of the Jefferson County Historical Society’s limited History Happy Hour program is slated for 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 28 and will feature Amber Bartl from Sirens and The Old Whiskey Mill and Ellie DiPietro, the society’s archivist and research center director, discussing “The Early 20th Century.” 

Mix up an era-specific cocktail with the bartender-led tutorial (there will be non-alcoholic versions, too) and then enjoy your drink as they share fun facts about Jefferson County during the dawn of the previous century.

The drink recipe for this event comes from the historical society’s archives and is credited as “Charlie Lange’s Martini.” 

As C.F. Goodrich wrote: “In the early 1900s there was no better known character among the Army and Revenue Cutter officers in the Northwest, as well as the shipping fraternity and the business and professional men of Port Townsend, than Charlie Lange, who owned and operated a little bar known as the Ideal. His ability to mix a drink without apparently using a measure but without spilling a drop or failing to fill the glass was a legend. He generously supplied to some of his friends the recipe for some of his best-known drinks.”

Attendance is free. RSVP to programs@jchsmuseum.com to receive an email with the link to tune in via Zoom, as well as a list of suggested ingredients for the cocktail. 

A recording of the program will be available to all registered participants, so if you can’t make the date but would like to see the program, be sure to register anyway.
