Cocktail recipes inspired by sixty of the world’s most amazing ladies.

Product details

Free the Tipple pays tribute to a brilliant range of diverse women from the 20th century to today, including Frida Kahlo, Serena Williams, Virginia Woolf, Yoko Ono, Zaha Hadid, 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 Beyoncé, made, of course, with lemonade. The cocktails are simple to make, kitchen-tested, and incorporate easy-to find ingredients. Includes snappy and informative biographies along with illustrated, newly-commissioned portraits. This highly original guide to delicious beverages is a perfect gift for those in your life who encourage and inspire you.
