The perfect mix of punny humor, feminist verve, and practical instruction, Women's Libation! is a cocktail guide for the lady who likes to shake things up (and not just her martinis). In it, Brooklyn-based illustrator and long-time bartender Merrily Grashin toasts the feminist heroes who've come before us and the social movements that have helped shape us, honoring each with a delicious, imaginative cocktail. Beautifully appointed in a paper-over-board package with two-color interiors, each spread features an original illustration for every boozy beverage and a brief reflection on the historical figure, event, or movement in women's history on which the drink is based. With new twists on classic cocktails as well as inventive new libations, Grashin's recipes will educate you as you imbibe, including such gems as:
- Joan of Arc & Stormy
- Emma Gold-Manhattan
- Rosé the Riveter
- Mosc-N.O.W. Mule
- Margaret Sanger-ia
Featuring 75 recipes that even the novice bartender can make at home, Women's Libation! is the perfect host gift to share at a party or to give to a feminist friend in need of some cheer.
