Drink Like A Woman – Shake. Stir. Conquer. Repeat.
Drink Like a Woman: Shake. Stir. Conquer. Repeat, by Jeanette Hurt is the perfect treat for anyone looking for a glass of something strong after a long day of smashing the patriarchy. With a foreword by Ann Tuennerman, founder of the world-renowned series of cocktail events and competitions Tales of the Cocktail, Drink Like a Woman features profiles of more than 70 amazing women from history, literature, and pop culture, and honors each with her own cocktail.
Specialty topics in Drink Like a Woman include: • Holiday Cocktails: What should you serve at holiday parties? • Stocking Your Home Bar: The tools and ingredients that you should never be without and how to make the best use of them. • The History of Female Bartending: Women are credited with inventing the first alcohol still, the first breweries, and possibly the first cocktails, but did you know that several states had laws against women tending bar as late as 1971?
Following in the tradition of Tequila Mockingbird, Drink Like a Woman is a “highly gift-able,” clever compendium of cocktails as varied as the women they celebrate. Inside, you will find drinks that are bold, spicy, sweet, tart, smooth, refreshing, subtle, and complex—but never “girly.” It’s time we acknowledged that women’s taste in cocktails, just like our contribution to history, is anything but predictable.
