It's a very special live episode from The Feast! In honor of Women's History Month, we're bringing you a live discussion of women and cocktails in American history, straight from the Rosson House in Phoenix's Heritage Square. Before the 1920s with its flappers and speakeasies, who were the mixed drinks mavens of US history? We take a long look at women and drinks in the US, from Revolutionary War era recipes for spruce beer to how many wine glasses it takes to make a Victorian dinner party to the unsung women cocktail book writers of the pre-Prohibition era. It's a galloping romp through American beverage history- you won't want to miss it! And be sure to check out the images for the episode- with lots of great photos and drawings from the age of the cocktail in late Victorian America!
