Detailed information about Women’s Libation!: Cocktails to Celebrate a Woman’s Right to Booze

This book is well written and well-illustrated by the author who has a penchant for awful  but clever puns but extremely good cocktail recipes. The reader just won’t want to wait to try them all. All the recipes are inspired by the lives of women’s rights activists, women leaders, women’s health and much more. As well as the recipe for each cocktail there is a little piece of prose describing the person or event that created the inspiration.

There is no doubt about it but the reader will love every minute of the journey through this wonderful little book. Ms Grashin is able to combine feminist history yet keep it light, funny and clever to read.
