Watch: 100 Years of Cocktails in 2 Minutes

By Mike Pomranz |

Kicking back with a drink has changed quite a bit over time. For example, we don’t play these ancient drinking games anymore (probably because there is a good chance we would die if we did).

The folks at Mode didn’t quite go back to ancient times, but they decided to look at how the cocktail has evolved over the past century. Starting in 1915 and working their way to the present, the short video above examines the changes that have occurred in both bartender fashion and go-to beverages for each era.

It’s a fun rehash of bar culture throughout the years. Well, at least it’s fun until they get to 1995. Then I had some scary flashbacks. But outside of that, very fun!
