15 Cocktails inspired by literary greats

Virginia Woolf

The inspiration for the title of this book, Virginia Woolf ’s A Room of One’s Own is a classic of early feminist literature that explores the financial, social and psychological limitations faced by women writers throughout history.

Within the progressive environment of the Bloomsbury Group, Woolf wrote novels like To the Lighthouse and Mrs Dalloway, known for their lyricism, formal innovation, and treatment of women’s lived experience. She explored lesbianism in Orlando, the gender-swapping title character based on Woolf ’s lover Vita Sackville-West.

The Virginia Woolf cocktail
