Women's History Month :: Cocktail Edition

Women have been influencing the Spirits industry for centuries. Do you know where the term "cocktail" originated? As one story goes, an innkeeper during the Revolutionary War by the name of Betsy Flanagan stirred a drink with a rooster tail and called it a cocktail.


As we celebrate Women's History Month this March, sip on three classic cocktails influenced by females.
