Cocktail marketers and male bartenders like to tell women what we want to drink—and it’s usually fruity, frilly, fancy, and pink.

In Drink Like a Woman, Jeanette Hurt shakes up barroom expectations, stirs up some new ideas, and pours a lively collection of feminist cocktails that are just as varied, flavorful, and strong as women are.

Sharing basic techniques, cocktail classics, hangover cures, drinking games, and more, this spirited guide takes the misogyny out of mixology by offering fun and functional tips for the at-home barista who doesn’t need a man to mix it up. She also exposes the surprisingly sexist history of cocktail culture, and offers more than 50 recipes, crafted by top women bartenders around the country, including:

Anarchy Amaretto
Bloody Mary Richards
Nelly Bly-Tai
The LBD (The Little Black Dress)
Ruth’s Pink Taboo
The Suffragette Sour
Ride, Sally Ride
Curie Royale

With feisty illustrations and original recipes that call for a generous splash of female empowerment, Drink Like a Woman is sure to subvert the patriarchy, one drink at a time.
