Jennifer Croll’s Free the Tipple celebrates female icons with personalized cocktails

When Vancouver author and editor Jennifer Croll launched her 2016 YA non-fiction title, Bad Girls of Fashion: Style Rebels from Cleopatra to Lady Gaga, she concocted a few special drinks for the event in honour of the women profiled in her book. Croll observed how much her guests enjoyed imbibing cocktails like “the Coco Chanel.” Inspired, she pitched her editor at Prestel Publishing a book of drink recipes named after influential women in history.
