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.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
