“Founded in Pittsburgh in 2001, Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails (a.k.a. LUPEC) is an all women’s classic cocktail society. Their mission:’In a post-millenial world of beer and prepackaged Chex Mix™, LUPEC works tirelessly to breed, raise, and release cocktails that are endangered or even believed to be extinct.’

“LUPEC seeks to: ‘invoke and honor the spirits of their Forebroads; continue the American tradition of dangerous women calling themselves Ladies and getting together in groups, clubs, and societies to work undercover while they chip away at the patriarchy; to protect the collective Joie de Vivre of LUPEC members by assuring them at least one good party a month; to encourage the accumulation and use of vintage serving and barware.'”

Thank you, Mr (Gaz, not Ronald) Regan, for introducing us to this fabulous force of alcoholic nature. Among other things, it should also help silence any critics to our outwardly apparent gender focus. It’s also offers the opportunity to share a toast “To our sisters in drunken arms!” once in a while. Maybe excepting that bit about chipping away at the patriarchy…
