Declaration of Sentiments

What is the Declaration of Sentiments? I hear you ask. And how did it become a cocktail?

Mini history lesson … I 1848, the key protagonists of the women’s movement that became known as the Suffragette movement, organised a convention in Seneca Falls, NY.

The convention emerged with a declaration calling for women’s equal rights to things we take for granted today – voting , education, the right to own our own property.

As this was an important first step to the Suffragette movement and a cocktail called the Suffragette was concocted in 1909, I thought it a good opportunity to celebrate and pay homage to these strong and wonderful women with this powerful, yet gentle and dry-sweet tipple.

Furthermore, apart from its heady flavour mix and the effects of great and sublime ingredients, the mix was referred to as the Suffragette in @diffordsguide, which is normally spot on. And I’m a bit thingy when it comes to being right in detail.

Hence, I’ve renamed it appropriately, as it’s the precursor to the movement that started very important change in the world.

Let’s cut to the chase and declare our sentiments!
