Suffrage Drinks

Alice Paul toasting the passage  of the 19th!

Many of the suffragists were aligned with  the temperance movement so it may seem surprising that there was a suffrage cocktail:

Somewhere along the line, I read that there was a "Suffrage-Ade" drink served at an American hotel in London at one point.  I can't remember where I saw that now but I do know that "Suffrage-Ade" became a popular drink at the begining of the 20th century.

Some of you may be experiencing warmer weather this holiday weekend and wish to try this beverage.  I found a recipe that you might wish to try--and it's even safe for kids!
Have a great day!

  1. Makes me think of the rhyme: "One martini, two martinis, three martinis, floor." The Suffrage-ade is more my style but, boy, that's a lot of sugar!
