Why women? Well, let me tell you my story. In 2018, I began dating a guy who made cocktails. He made a couple for me and my mind was blown. I immediately requested my own cocktail shaker and he willingly obliged by gifting me one. I began to enter the world of mixology and making my own cocktails at home.
I had an AHA moment not too long afterwards that women had been essentially left out of the cocktail space. Did you know women weren’t even allowed to be Bartenders until 1971? Anyway, I realized that everyone in my generation had basically been brainwashed into believing that Cosmos were what we were supposed to be drinking and we weren’t supposed to know how to make cocktails ourselves. It was a “man’s hobby,” essentially.
Well, I want to change that. There’s so much more out there besides Cosmos! No offense to Cosmos- I actually like them a lot. But once I discovered Clover Clubs and Pink Ladies and Jack Roses’ and all of the other delicious options out there, I was so happy!
