Whisky and its white trash cousin, bourbon, are no longer just a guy’s best friend. There are plenty of modern women who don’t mind the hearty drop, and the rush of grainy cocktails being served in bars is 100% distilled proof.

There’s an outlaw’s bravado associated with bourbon. It’s biker tough and – like old-school bikers – it sometimes smells as if it hasn’t bathed in months. But before you write off bourbon or whisky as being too low-frill or groupie for your Jimmy Choo shoes, take a swig and reappraise.

These drinks are primal and, honey, they’re not low carb. They’re Real Drinks for Real Babes who think that Atkins died because he didn’t have enough bourbon in his diet. For a classic drop, try the Manhattan or Rusty Nail. For something edgy and new, chirp like a Kentucky Bluebird or dig your heels in with a Stiletto. These dark drops are for devoted dames who don’t give a damn, Miss Scarlett.
