The Aspen Crud: A Real Prohibition Cocktail

In this month's Perfect Getaway, we visit Aspen, Colorado, where the Hotel Jerome's J-Bar has an illustrious past. During Prohibition, the bar was converted to a soda fountain—but locals in the know found a way around the liquor laws. Writer J.P. Marquand, Luke Short (Fred Glidden), and Thornton Wilder ordered a milkshake with a little something extra: bourbon they called "crud." The Aspen Crud is still served in J-Bar today.

Here's the original Aspen Crud recipe.

5 Scoops of French Vanilla Ice Cream
3 1 oz. Shots of Bourbon
Place Ice Cream in a blender and add shots of Bourbon.
Blend for several seconds until smooth.
Serve in a tin mug.
