Cocktails, Books, and the KKK

Cocktails became a huge thing in the 20's, they were saved at parties and gatherings during the Prohibition Era. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald was said to be the most famous book of this era, which told the fictional story of Jay Gatsby and exposed the amount of Consumerism. The KKK were portrayed as the protector of traditional values and opposes of immigration.
