M eet Ms. Cocktail, THE TASTING PANEL's gal about town. Whether she's catching up with the hottest female bartenders or she's just grabbing a cocktail with other libation-loving ladies, Ms. Cocktail is your connection to the ways in which women are shaking things up in the industry today! Ladies' Nights In honor of International Women's Day, LUPEC (Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails) chapters across the country gathered to celebrate a little girl power. The Los Angeles contingency gathered at famed watering hole Cole's Original French Dip, where ladies came decked out in their tea party finest while enjoying fun Madhatter-themed cocktails like Zahara Bates's (Cole's Original French Dip) innovative French 75 Jello shot, renamed Twiddle Dee/Tweedle Dumb. Said chapter President Hollis Bulleit, "Lupec L.A. is so happy to be involved in the first ever national LUPEC activation of International Women's Day. We are hoping to make this into an annual tradition that benefits local women's charities. We are also super excited to have yet another reason to wear a big hat and enjoy an amazing cocktail with it...while surrounded by friends and laughter. It is true, badass babes imbibe straight up amazeballs drinks! Well, the days of the hot pink Carrie Bradshaw Cosmo have been officially upgraded." LUPEC L.A. members Katt Witt, Brent Falco, Karen Grill, Hollis Bulleit, Jaymee Mandeville, Cari Hah and Zahara Bates. 36 / the tasting panel / may 2013 PHOTO: RACHEL BURKONS Spotted: The Ladies of LUPEC Los Angeles at Cole's Original French Dip, Downtown Los Angeles
