Prohibition is finally over in Evanston

Once the center of the country’s temperance movement, and dry for many years following the end of Prohibition, Evanston now boasts its own distillery, Few Spirits.

Evanston’s Quince restaurant celebrates with a four-course, four-cocktail dinner at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 24. Chef Andy Motto’s menu uses several ingredients grown in Quince’s on-site garden, paired with Few libations.

The menu: bass with Quince garden lettuce, melon, lime and ginger, paired with a “Stormy Few” cocktail; grilled scallop with spicy Quince garden vegetables, mso and orange, accompanied by an “Invisible Manhattan”; pork and patty pan squash, summer beans, cornbread and blackberries plus a sazerac; and dark chocolate mint mousse with “The Chocolate Bronx” cocktail.

A Few Spirits rep will be hand to discuss the history of the liquors as well as the current happenings at the craft distillery.

The dinner is $55 and reservations are required.
