Top 10 new drinks books

7th April, 2017 by Lucy Shaw

A Drink of One’s Own by Laura Becherer and Cameo Marlatt

Keen to celebrate female literary greats of past and present, creative writing students Laura Becherer and Cameo Marlatt created a cocktail book featuring 50 recipes inspired by famous female writers from around the world.

From Jane Austen to JK Rowling, A Drink of One’s Own charts the lives of these influential women and features a cocktail recipe alongside their biography designed to be made at home.

The idea for the book came about one night when Becherer and Marlatt were drinking at their regular haunt in Glasgow and discussing how history has misrepresented writers like Zelda Fitzgerald and Mary Shelley, who still dwell in the shadows of their husbands’ success.

“Drinking culture is especially linked to male writers like Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald – women have historically been pushed away from the realm as a whole,” Becherer says.
