Girly Drinks at Mulvaney’s


Join Bobbin Mulvaney and the B&L Women’s Libations team, featuring Mixologist Sarah Jean Fuller, and author Mallory O’Meara of Girly Drinks: A World History of Women and Alcohol.

While Ms. O’Meara talks about her book, which has been described as a “seriously entertaining treatise on the history of gendered drinks,” Ms. Fuller will design “Farm-to-Glass” cocktails with our region’s favorite women farmers including Twin Peaks Peaches and Bella Farms. You’re sure to enojoy some truly girly drinks.

The event will be held on Thursday, September 1, 2022, at 5:00 pm at Mulvaney’s B&L, kicking off Sacramento’s Literacy Month.

Come have some summer fun at Mulvaney’s and enjoy a delightful evening of famous Sacramento hospitality including a complimentary ‘girly’ drink and farm-to-fork appetizers.

This event will benefit Ag In the Classroom and Sacramento Literacy Foundation. Each ticket includes a copy of Girly Drinks: A World History of Women and Alcohol.

Praise for Girly Drinks

“Feminist and very funny… O’Meara deftly blends in equal measures of social history, gossip, and solid research, and adds enjoyable footnotes… women have discovered, invented, advanced, championed, and celebrated alcohol. Ladies? This calls for a drink.” – Booklist

“Girly Drinks is anything but—a raw shot of boozy history that stings as well as it soothes!” – Patton Oswalt

“Cheers to Mallory O’Meara and her serious yet seriously entertaining treatise on the history of gendered drinks. Girly Drinks will introduce you to queens and nuns, bootleggers and bartenders, telling their stories and proving the point that all drinks are girly drinks.” – Jeanette Hurt, author of Wisconsin Cocktails and Drink Like a Woman
