First of all, Happy International Women’s Day. It’s been quite a year+, eh? I know I’m exhausted and drained and often tempted to just close my eyes and my ears and alalalala and pretend it all isn’t happening. But I can’t do that. We can’t do that. We have to continue to resist. To fight. And most importantly, to support each other, to raise each other up. Empowered women empower women.
When I was planning out the blog schedule for the next couple of months, I couldn’t help but notice that the date I had slotted for a cocktail post happened to be International Women’s Day. It felt right. We deserve a drink, damnit. So in honor of strong women everywhere, a strong cocktail.
