Tammy’s Tastings is thrilled to be hosting author Mallory O’Meara for an online book talk and cocktail class. Stereotypes abound about what woman “should” be drinking. Appletinis and Cosmos are drinks for girls. Beer and scotch, now those are respectable drinks. Those are men’s drinks …Aren’t they? Who decided that drinking was a gendered act? When did certain kinds of alcohol first become respectable? Where in the world did this happen? Why did this happen? How did this happen?

You’ll find all these answers and more in GIRLY DRINKS: A World History of Women and Alcohol. Mallory O’Meara – curious feminist, witty historian, and award-winning, Los Angeles Times bestselling author of The Lady from the Black Lagoon – will join me for a spirited evening of presentation, discussion, and mix-along demonstrations of cocktails.

If your favorite thing about Tammy’s Tastings cocktail classes is the history, then this is a class you cannot miss! And if you purchase the book with your ticket, you’ll save a little on your class price and it’ll be sent right to your door with a signed bookplate. Plus, since book sales and shipping are being provided Nicola’s Books/Schuler Books, you’ll be supporting an independent bookshop!Mallory O'Meara

“At last, the feminist history of booze we’ve been waiting for! After centuries of being excluded, ignored, or treated as accessories, Mallory O’Meara has put women at the center of a global history of alcohol.”
—AMY STEWART, author of The Drunken Botanist


“With this lively book Mallory O’Meara has provided a real service, giving us not only a long-overdue new perspective on a great many familiar issues, but also raising all kinds of other issues that are unfamiliar and shouldn’t be.”
—DAVID WONDRICH, author of Imbibe!
