Free the Tipple: Kickass Cocktails Inspired by Iconic Women
Sixty of the world's coolest and most influential women are the inspiration for this refreshing and fun collection of drink recipes that are sure to bring extra zest to your cocktail shaker. Free the Tipple pays tribute to a brilliant range of diverse women from the 20th century to today who have made waves in entertainment, the arts, politics, fashion, literature, sports, and science, including Frida Kahlo, Rihanna, Serena Williams, Virginia Woolf, Yoko Ono, Zaha Hadid, Marlene Dietrich, Zadie Smith, and more. Each double-page spread features a recipe crafted to reflect its namesake's personality, style, legacy, or what she liked to drink herself. This ranges from The Gloria Steinem, which uses a complex liquor with a radical twist, to The Beyonce- made, of course, with lemonade. The cocktails are simple to make, kitchen-tested, and incorporate easy to find ingredients. Snappy, informative biographies, illustrated with newly-commissioned portraits, offer revealing insights into the women's lives.
