Moonshine & Memories, Beacon Hill Civic Association’s 41st Annual Winter Gala, looks back at 90 years on Beacon Hill, and takes guests to Prohibition-era Boston. The Winter Gala Committee is excited to announce an exciting new partnership this year. Kickass Cupcakes, located in Somerville, has graciously donated 250 mini-cupcakes to help round out the evening’s mouthwatering dessert selection. This artisanal bakery uses only all natural ingredients and bakes a variety of delectable flavors from scratch daily; which are featured on their cupcake food truck that is out and about in Boston seven days a week.
The lucky winner of this year’s drawing item will take home a basket filled with enough goods to start a speakeasy of their own. A basket filled with speakeasy spirits and classic cocktail books is highlighted by a donation from Onyx Moonshine. This new age Moonshine is made in Connecticut from an authentic Prohibition-era recipe and is great on the rocks or can replace vodka or whiskey in your favorite cocktail recipe. Also included are two needlepoint flasks from North River Outfitters, with their three locations in Beacon Hill they keep residents well-dressed in Adult, Children’s and Sports clothing. This amazing door prize is rounded out with additional spirits donated by Beacon Hill Wine & Spirits, Charles Street Liquors, Jobi Liquor, and Simmon’s Liquor. Crack open a cocktail book, pick your poison, and mix up a Prohibition-style cocktail! Raffle tickets for will be available for purchase at the event.
