Drinking Like Ladies

75 Modern Cocktails from the World's Leading Female Bartenders

Drinking Like Ladies is dedicated to the proposition that a woman’s place is behind the bar. . . or in front of it. . . or really any place she pleases.

Acclaimed bartenders Kirsten Amann and Misty Kalkofen have scoured the globe collecting recipes—often from equally acclaimed female bartenders—pairing each tipple with a toast to a trailblazing lady. From gin to whiskey, tequila to punch, Drinking Like Ladies has a twist and a toast for every tippler, whatever your base spirit.


"Let’s raise a glass to Drinking Like Ladies, a book that celebrates extraordinary women who fought against the idea that young women who want careers are simply dreaming."- Dale Degroff, Author of The Craft of the Cocktail

"Dive in, drink and learn. If there’s any justice, the mixologists who honor the women in these pages soon will be just as celebrated."- Robert Simonson, New York Times cocktail writer and author of A Proper Drink
