From LA Times bestselling author Mallory O’Meara, a James Beard Award-winning history of women drinking through the ages
Alcohol has been at the center of social rituals and cultures worldwide. But when exactly did drinking become a gendered act? Why have bars long been considered “places for men” when, without women, they might not even exist? Girly Drinks unveils an entire untold history of the female distillers, drinkers, and brewers that have played a vital role in the creation and consumption of alcohol. Filling a crucial gap in culinary history, O’Meara dismantles the longstanding patriarchal traditions and stereotypes at the heart of these very drinking cultures, in the hope that readers everywhere can look to each celebrated woman in this book – and proudly have what she’s having.
