Empower Cocktails hopes to overcome what it feels is a “man-centric” market. A new brand started by a family-owned farm in Northern California, it just released its first bottled cocktail, Empower Cosmopolitan Martini, made from sweet potato vodka, triple sec, white cranberry and lime. The 25-proof cocktail is 80 calories per 3 ounces.


Empower Cocktails was founded by a former spirit conglomerate lawyer, who found the industry lacking in spirits that celebrate and honor women while catering to their distinct tastes.


“I didn’t always think I’d become a cocktail entrepreneur, but in my extensive career, I’ve always wanted to create a platform to empower women and elevating women to succeed,” said Tiffany Hall, founder. “Empower Cocktails has become a way for me to continue doing that work, in a way that also encourages women to come together, pop open a bottle and celebrate each other.”


Additionally, Empower Cocktails partners with various nonprofits with a female focus, including the Voss Foundation, Kicked it in Heels, the Metro-Manhattan Community Foundation and Dress for Success Boston.


Empower Cocktails is currently selling its Empower Cosmopolitan Martini online for $22, or at stores in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Ristorante Consorzio, Turin, Italy

Ristorante Consorzio is almost as famous for its selection of fine cheeses as its delicious wines. After one evening dining here I understand why. The selections of both are extensive and top-notch, and feature a variety of each from around the country.

Work and Play in Italy

Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
