BPR News Quiz 8/10/2018

Joining Boston Public Radio's News Quiz this week are two women who are shaking things up in the world of beverages.

Kitty Amann is a consultant specializing in cocktails, wines, and spirits. Misty Kalkofen has a reputation as one of America’s foremost authorities on cocktail history and culture, and — in addition to tending bar at Cambridge's Brick & Mortar since 2011 — she is also a consultant. The two have them have come together to write the new book, a sparkling combination of history and cocktail recipes: "Drinking Like Ladies: 75 Modern Cocktails from the World's Leading Female Bartenders; Includes Toasts to Extraordinary Women in History."

Amann and Kalkofen shared some of their favorite recipes and were quizzed on the week's news. Tune in to hear more.
