THIS COCKTAIL IS:

“I set out to create a #girlydrink inspired by the heavily male-dominated cocktail culture of the mid-late 19th century. This sipper is equally as tasty and melon-y as it is stiff and robust.” –Anna Levy

Duality, protest, non-conformism, all symbols at the heart of the Quebec artist Miss Me’s work, but also very present in the co-creation between her and romeo’s gin: romeo’s gin X, the anti-pink gin. For the International Women’s Day, we want to highlight 10 amazing Canadian women bartenders for whom these concepts are commonplace. They are showing us their vision of  the #girlydrinks through meaningful, creative and decadent cocktails, that can be enjoyed by both men and women. They also share their stories as women in the industry, without censorship. Pink but not what you think. For all the recipes and the interview, click here.
