“For International Women’s Day, I created a cocktail inspired by the freshness of romeo’s gin X, which brings together some of its aromatics (melon, almond, lemon, dill) with a feminine medicinal plant, the calendula. It is a fresh but powerful beverage, which does not leave indifferent by its complexity and is tasted slowly. A beautiful way to emphasize the woman in all her splendor.” –Laurence Deshaies
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.
