Stir it Up!

Join Misty Kalkofen & Kitty Amann - authors of Drinking Like Ladies: 75 Modern Cocktails from the World’s Leading Female Bartenders - for a round! This podcast is a companion project to the book, where we continue the tradition of celebrating super cool women and sharing cocktails to toast in their honor.   

We started recording episodes early in 2020 with a planned late spring launch to coincide with Women’s History Month. We can’t wait for you to hear those episodes! But the world has changed since we began this project so we will be taking a detour to help our friends in the hospitality industry. For now we will be interviewing experts around topics in how to navigate various aspects of the current crisis due to COVID-19.  

We anxiously look forward to this podcast being what it was intended to be, but for now it is exactly what it needs to be.  

Please subscribe, rate, review, for updates on new episodes!

MISTY KALKOFEN first stepped behind the bar while studying theology 
at Harvard Divinity School and soon realized what most excited her about 
the Bible was the passage in which Jesus turns water into wine. Kalkofen has spent over twenty years honing her craft and has earned a reputation as one of America’s foremost authorities on cocktail history and culture. She has been featured in Bon Appetit, Imbibe, Food & Wine Cocktail editions, Wine Enthusiast, the Wall Street Journal, the Boston Globe, Tasting Panel, Wine & Spirits, and more. In 2013, she decided to focus attention on her love for all things agave by joining the team of Del Maguey Single Village Mezcal. Always one to find a good reason for a party, Kalkofen founded the Boston chapter of Ladies United for the Preservation of the Endangered Cocktail (LUPEC) thus fulfilling her desire to “cocktail for a cause.” Since then, LUPEC has raised more than $40,000 for local Boston women’s charities by throwing the best parties in town.

Kitty spent four years as Boston’s first Brand Ambassador for Fernet‑Branca and her past marketing clients include Plymouth, Beefeater, Bols Genever, The Bitter Truth, No. 3 Gin, and more. Kitty works with clients to champion their brands, develop dynamic events, create delicious cocktails and design unforgettable experiences. She has been teaching yoga in Boston for 10 years and works with clients in the beverage industry and beyond to find healthy balance.
