Women Behind Bars: An Illicit History of Women and Bartending

March 22, 2017 at Women & Children First Bookstore in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=rXR2zKEt3pLpZJUUzNgwPH

Award-winning author Jeanette Hurt will discuss the sordid–and oft unknown–history of women and bartending, from how an American woman likely invented the cocktail during the American Revolution to today’s craft cocktail scene. In DRINK LIKE A WOMAN, Hurt shakes up barroom expectations, stirs up some new ideas, and pours a lively collection of feminist cocktails that are, like women, diverse and strong. Sharing basic techniques, cocktail classics, hangover cures, drinking games, and more, this spirited guide takes the misogyny out of mixology. With feisty illustrations and original recipes, DRINK LIKE A WOMAN is sure to subvert the patriarchy, one drink at a time.

Jeanette Hurt is the award-winning writer and author of eight culinary and drink books, including The Cheeses of California: A Culinary Travel Guide, which received the 2010 Mark Twain Award for Best Travel Book, and The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Wine and Food Pairing. As full-time journalist, Jeanette has written about spirits, wine, and food for The Four Seasons Magazine, Wine Enthusiast, Esquire.com, and dozens of other publications. In a previous life, Jeanette was a police reporter for the City News Bureau in Chicago and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. When she’s not writing, traveling, cooking, or mixing drinks, she can usually be found walking along Milwaukee’s lakefront with her husband, their son, and their dog. For this event, the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board will be donating women-crafted cheeses that will pair well with the free cocktail samples provided by William Grant & Co.

This event is free! No RSVP required.
