A Generous Celebration

Booze You Can Use: Women's History Month


International Women's Day was on March 8th, and as part of the 100th Anniversary of IWD, the lovely ladies of LUPEC NYC (the NYC Chapter of Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails) teamed up with Compass Box Whisky, Bespoke Chocolates, and Murray's Cheese for Women & Whisky Unite -- a wonderful seminar and tasting at Astor Center. Proceeds from the event benefitted Bottomless Closet. This gorgeous drink you see above was created by Meaghan Dorman of Raines Law Room. As she tells us, this cocktail was "[i]nspired by feminist, journalist and social and political activist Gloria Steinem, who became nationally recognized as a leader of the US women's liberation movement in the late 1960's and 1970's.  Steinem also co-founded Ms. Magazine, hence the cocktail's name.
