Description (ca. 1921):

Alcohol was a huge deal during the Steampunk period. Although it was illegal, there were ways around it. This was when smuggling started to become an issue. Many bootleggers smuggled alcohol from Canada and distributed once back to the states. Absinthe was one of those drinks. It was introduced in Europe and traveled to America as an in-demand drink in the 90s. It was a pretty expensive drink due to the prohibition.
