From A History of Wine in America, we read that, "General James Edward Oglethorpe (1696-1785) founded Georgia as a place where neither slavery nor strong drink was to be allowed, but where wine growing was to be a basic economic activity.

While Savannah knows how to throw a party (they have the third-largest St. Patrick's Day parade in the United States), you don't have to have a special occasion to get out and enjoy an adult beverage.

Moon River Brewing Company has been serving food and making hand-crafted beer since 1999. 


While the building was a hotel, its guest list included the likes of War of 1812 hero Winfield Scott, the Marquis de Lafayette.

Nowadays, it purported that paranormal activity takes places at the brewery by the likes of bottles being thrown by unseen forces and spectres being sighted lingering in the billiard room.

Countless visitors from all around the globe have raised a toast to Savannah's poet. 


Although it may seem fitting to pay respect to Aiken by enjoying a martini at his memorial bench , alcohol is actually forbidden at the cemetery.

Instead, grab your solo cup martini and enjoy the other sites and sounds of Savannah.

Raise your glass to pirates of the past, like Captain Flint of Treasure Island fame. 


Pirates and rum go together like peanut butter and jelly or coffee and doughnuts. As such, rum is better when it is made into a cocktail.

Instead of having a shot, enjoy light rum and dark rum mixed with 151 floated on top with cranberry, pineapple, & orange juice in a Skull Crusher.

If you are in the heart of the historic district and crave an adult libation, then head to The DeSoto Savannah for an Edgar's Cup. 


Edgar's Proof and Provisions is located inside The DeSoto and offers an intimate indoor environment or a cozy outdoor option. They have two specialty cocktails, one of which is Edgar's Cup.
