On Friday night, I was eager to mix something with our new purchase of Root Liqueur. Luckily, the company's webpage has a lot of good recipes from Philidelphia bartenders to choose from. The one that caught my eye was the Prince Farrington Punch created by Pheobe Esmon, the head bartender at Chick's Café. The drink was named after Prince David Farrington, one of the most successful moonshiners and bootleggers during and after Prohibition. Prince Farrington operated in Pennsylvania, and besides being know as the "King of Bootleggers," his generosity to his community made him an even greater folk hero.
